Full time: Bolton 3-3 MK Dons

Unbelievable. It’s absolute heartbreak for Dons as they let three points slip through their fingers at the end, and have to settle for a share of the spoils. The Hiram Boateng fairy tale was not to be as Baptise equalised deep into stoppage time for Bolton but it has been a stunning game of football. It had a bit of everything, but at the end of it all, it has two teams with a point apiece.

90+5 mins: Bolton equalise

This remarkable game has had yet another twist as Bolton equalise with the final kick of the game from Alex Baptise.

FIVE minutes to be added on

Five minutes stoppage time will be played.

Brooklyn Ilunga comes on for Scott Twine.

Hiram Boateng - the forgotten man! He’s fired Dons in front after Daniel Harvie’s cross appeared behind Mo Eisa, but he sticks out a long leg and fires in from just inside the six yard area!

It’s 3-2!

80 mins: Boateng is back

Hiram Boateng makes his first Dons appearance since January 2020 as he replaces Troy Parrott.

71 mins: Dons are back on level terms!

Scott Twine opens his MK Dons account with a brilliant free kick, as good as Sheehan’s first half effort, to equalise for Dons!

68 mins: Bolton take the lead

A poor pass from Harry Darling caught Watson on his heels, allowing John to nick the ball, cross from the Bolton left. It’s over the head of Jules to Bakayoko, and after taking a touch, he fires past Walker, with a deflection off Jules, to give the home side the lead.

Tennai Watson, who has looked good this afternoon, makes way for Aden Baldwin.

60 mins: Still right on a knife-edge

Not a lot to tell between the sides still, still a bit of needle amongst the players too. No chances really to speak of for either side this half.

Dons looking more willing to clear their lines in a more traditional sense as well in these opening 15 minutes.
