30 mins: Dodgy passing is almost Dons’ undoing

MK Dons cannot pick a pass in their own half this afternoon. Even short passes seem to be eluding them as another loose one from McEachran is turned into attack by Burton, with a cross coming in at the near post but it’s prodded wide by Daniel Jebbison.

16 mins: Watters AGAIN with a chance

O’Riley with a touch of class again, bringing down Twine’s cross brilliantly to put the ball back into the mix for Watters, who scoops his effort just wide.

15 mins: Burton growing into the game

After those early chances for Watters, Dons have slowed down a bit and it has allowed Burton to get into the game. They’ve had a penalty shout turned away, and a couple of corners which have needed important headers from Warren O’Hora to keep away.

6 mins: Watters again should score!

Watters, as well as half of Stadium MK, thought he’d scored there. He’s in behind again, beats keeper Garratt but it’s cleared off the line

2 mins: Dons should be in front

Watters with a typical run in behind, pulls it back but it’s behind the run of Twine and the chance goes begging. Probably should’ve had a go himself.

Burton get the game underway

Can they get much younger?!

There’s something in the Watters

Five goals in five games, six in 12 - you’d back Max Watters to score at the moment wouldn’t you?! We chatted with the 22-year-old about life at MK Dons, his bets with Scott Twine and the pressure he feels with Mo Eisa breathing down his neck.
