David Martin – 7 – One of his busier nights at stadium:mk, even though he wasn’t terribly troubled.

Might breath a sigh of relief that Lisbie’s hand knocked in a late ‘goal’ rather than his head as the ball sailed over him.

Jon Otsemobor – 6 – Defensive duties were limited for the full-back, while he sat out of many of the attacks up the wings. Was solid nonetheless.

Dean Lewington – 6 – Didn’t join in with as many attacks as in recent weeks, but also didn’t have much to do on the defensive side of things either.

Shaun Williams – 6 – Cool, calm and untroubled throughout. Wasn’t called on to do an awful lot in truth.

Antony Kay – 7– Threw himself bravely in front of everything Orient had to offer, and dominated in the air.

Darren Potter – 7 – Pulled the strings as usual, letting Gleeson do the running up ahead of him.

Stephen Gleeson – 8 – Driving force behind everything Dons did, but didn’t have much to show for his efforts. Showed his fiery side with a late clash with Cook.

Dean Bowditch – 7 – Made a good return from injury. Found himself in plenty of space on the flanks, and put in an excellent ball for Lowe to finish.

Angelo Balanta – 6 – Didn’t show much of his usual flair and skill, but put in an industrious shift on both flanks.

Luke Chadwick – 7 – Was a part of most of the action going forwards. Not as influential as we’ve seen in recent weeks but didn’t need to be.

Ryan Lowe – 8 – Ran himself into the ground, but looked full of confidence. Was in the right place at the right time to take his goal.


Adam Chicksen – 6 – Over-cooked his crosses as he tried to pick out MacDonald for a decisive second.

Charlie MacDonald – 6 – Barely touched the ball when he came on.

Mathias Doumbe – Late replacement for Lowe. Helped ride out the late storm.

Top Don – Ryan Lowe
