Silenced the Ipswich boo-boys with a measured second half to keep the visitors' attacks to a minimum.
Struggled to make an impact on his first league start, though he was not alone in the first half. Was taken off at the break.
Looked assured at centre back as part of a three and then a back four.
Struggled with his touch in the first half, but grew into it in the second.
Twice came close to drawing Dons level, drawing saves from Tomas Holy
His influence grew in the game after an off-colour opening half an hour.
Chased shadows in the first half, but looked better playing deeper in the second period.
Barely saw the ball in the first half, but could not get into the game much in the second either.
His introduction, along with Callum Brittain and a formation shift, helped bring Dons back into contention for a point.

Came on too late in the day to make an impact.
