Striker Osman Sow said MK Dons are getting closer to where they want to be after beating Bury 2-0 on Saturday.
The 27-year-old netted the opener for Robbie Neilson's side at Gigg Lane after just six minutes, with Ethan Ebanks-Landell's second half header making sure of the points.

It was his second goal of the season, but more than getting on the score sheet, Sow was pleased to have contributed to the victory as Dons climbed to 10th in League 1.
"It's good to get the three points and for me to get on the score sheet so overall I'm happy," said Sow. "It is always good as a striker to score, but the points is the most important thing as we climb the table and get closer and closer to where we want to be.
"Everybody is happy, but we need to keep working hard, believing in what we're doing, picking up points and we'll see what happens."
"We have a cup game next, and a tough game against Bradford and I hope we can put in some good performances."
