FULL TIME: Fleetwood 1-1 MK Dons
Honours even here at Highbury as it finishes 1-1. Garnder’s goal is cancelled out by Charlie Brown late on in a fiercely contested affair on the coast.
It ends Dons’ slim chances of a play-off spot once and for all, but with chances for both sides few and far between, a draw is just about the right result.
83 mins: Brown levels!
Fraser skips into the box, he was patient and waited for Sorinola to make space, his shot is parried by Cairns and Brown is on hand to just about get enough on it to see it dribble over the line to equalise for Dons!
Will Grigg makes way for Jay Bird in these closing stages.
81 mins: Great chance for Dons
Both Grigg and Sorensen get in each other’s way there as Jules dances into the penalty area, but the pair manage to miss the ball!
64 mins: Another couple of changes for Dons
McEachran and Surman make way for Houghton and Brown.
A bit of a scuffle unfolds in front of the dugouts as Sorinola and Rossiter get at it, the Dons man goes into the book.
60 mins: A gut punch as Fleetwood take the lead
Louis Thompson trips over the ball on half-way and allows the home side to break, Gerard Garner picks up the ball on the right flank, is able to cut inside and bend an effort past the out-stretched hand of Andrew Fisher to give Fleetwood the lead.
58 mins: Still nothing doing here
It’s still a scrappy game, and nothing highlights that more than a poor corner dealt with by Dons’ defence, but as they break with Darling through on goal, McEachran plays him in too late and the defender is offside.
Second half: Another change made
Louis Thompson comes on for David Kasumu at the interval.
Fleetwood get the game back underway.
Half time: Fleetwood 0-0 MK Dons
A scrappy half but an entertaining one all the same. Not much clear cut for either side, got a bit messy in the middle with some hefty tackles flying in from both sets of players, but 0-0 is about right.
Fleetwood have hit the post with an early header, Will Grigg and Matthew Sorinola have had efforts from range, Cairns doing well to deny the latter at the near post.
35 mins: Early change for Dons
Lasse Sorensen is going to replace injured O’Riley, who has been holding his groin for about five minutes or so.
31 mins: Big block from Jules
Important one from Jules there as Fleetwood had two men over, he gets himself in the way of the shot to give away a corner.
25 mins: Decent save from Cairns
Matthew Sorinola lively again on the ball, spins his man and looks as though he was going to slide in Fraser but he goes himself and fires in towards the near post but Cairns gets down well to deny him.
17 mins: Grigg just wide
The ball just wouldn’t sit for for Sorinola after McEachran’s brilliant ball over the top, it eventually comes to Grigg who fires wide.
It’s all getting a bit nasty out there, a lot of nasty challenges flying in at the moment from both sides as Kasumu has gone into the book.
12 mins: Scrappy so far
Aside from Fleetwood’s chance which was headed onto the post, there hasn’t been much other goal-mouth action. Dons have had a lot of the ball as usual but haven’t managed to really give Alex Cairns anything to worry about.
Scott Fraser has had the ball in the net but Sorinola was deemed offside in the build-up, much to the dismay of Russell Martin.
8 mins: An early chance for Fleetwood
They’ve barely had the ball in the opening exchanges but Wes Burns has climbed highest to the back-post corner to head against the post.
MK Dons kick the game off.
