Lincoln City set up to his MK Dons on the counter-attack, and twice capitalised as they ran out 2-1 winners from Stadium MK on Saturday.

Imps boss Michael Appleton said his side set up to capitalise on Dons' forward-thinking wing-backs and both goals came from launching quick breaks as the home side poured forwards.

The win, their fourth in five games, sees Lincoln climb to second in the table and left Appleton delighted.

“I am pleased today," he said. "We are all delighted, we setup really well and punished them on the counter attack. It's a good set of three points today.

"Alex Palmer made two great saves for us today, it was similar to last week because we aren't getting bombarded. We are forcing them to have shots from distance which is what I can take.

"What I can't take is when we get played through."
