Dons ratings vs Middlesbrough:

George Baldock - 7. Looked assured and made very few errors, if any.

Kyle McFadzean - 8. Strong at the back, winning every aerial duel that came his way. Deserved a clean sheet.

Joe Walsh - 7. Another who rarely put a foot wrong all night for the battling Dons.

Dean Lewington - 7. Solid if unspectacular performance from the skipper.

Samir Carruthers - 6. Worked hard in midfield but gave the ball away on a couple of occasions.

Jake Forster-Caskey - 7. A terrier-like performance from the combative and hard-woking midfielder.

Dean Bowditch - 8. Played very well before being substituted and took his goal well.

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas - 6. Worked hard but looked a bit off the pace at times. Subbed.

Josh Murphy - 6. A threat throughout but lacked the final ball at times.

Alex Revell - 7. Worked hard up top and kept the Boro defenders occupied throughout.

Subs:

Jordan Spence - 5. Late cameo gave him little time to make an impression.

Darren Potter - 5. Kept things ticking neatly.

Nicky Maynard - 5. Could have bagged a late second for Dons but was denied by a decent save.

Don of the match: McFadzean.
