FULL TIME: Gillingham 3-2 MK Dons

That’s a bitter one to take for MK Dons. Probably played the better football across 90 minutes, but they didn’t deal with a second-half set-piece and it was their undoing.

They had some decent chances in the second half, Surman had to score from close range, while Jerome and O’Riley both made Bonham make saves, but they walk away from Priestfield with defeat once again.

90+4mins: Fine stop from Bonham

That could be Dons’ last chance as Matt O’Riley takes aim from the edge of the box, but Bonham needs his fingertips to flick it over the top.

78 mins: Jules makes way

Dons make a fourth change, with Matthew Sorinola replacing Zak Jules

73 mins: Dons napping at a set piece

Dons had just made a triple substitution but they were napping when a long throw came into the box and the loose ball was lashed home by Connor Ogilvie to restore the lead for Gillingham.

On came Joe Mason, Jordan Houghton and Josh McEachran for Jerome, Grigg and Surman.

68 mins: Fisher at full-stretch

Olly Lee chances his hand from range and it looks as though it’s heading in but Fisher is at full-stretch to tip it over the bar.

60 mins: Good stop from Bonham

Ethan Laird has raced about 40 yards unchallenged with the ball, he threads a brilliant ball through to Jerome but Jack Bonham makes a good stop at his near post.

The mist is really thick now, we can barely see the pitch in front.

56 mins: Dons getting back on top

They’re beginning to play at a better tempo now and twice they’ve got into the penalty area but it’s still level. Warren O’Hora, Cameron Jerome and Scott Fraser all got touches but didn’t get a shot away, but Surman HAS to score when he’s nodded through by Jerome but he lifts the ball over the bar.

Back underway at Priestfield.
