With Dons clinging on to a narrow 1-0 lead in the latter stages against Leeds, thanks to Rob Hall’s first half opener, Kay’s misjudged header beat keeper David Martin three minutes from time to wrench two points away.
The return to fitness of Joe Walsh could not have come at a worse time for Kay, who was dropped to the bench in favour of the Welshman before a return to the starting line-up in March.
It sparked something of a glut of late goals which cost Dons points up and down the country. Leads were squandered against both Middlesbrough and Huddersfield in stoppage time, and Blackburn scored a late free kick to win 3-2 at Ewood Park.
