It has been seven weeks and 11 games without Max Dean in an MK Dons squad!

He's back this afternoon, on the bench to face Stockport County

Wearne gets the game underway

MK Dons not at the races at all in these opening two minutes, looking rushed and panicked on the ball.

Twice already they've given it away in dangerous positions and put themselves under unnecessary pressure

5 mins: Settling down

They don't quite look at ease still, but Dons are now starting to settle into the game in pretty vile conditions. It's cold, wet and windy here at Edgeley Park and neither side are able to get control of the ball really.
