MK Dons vs Bradford

David Martin - 6 - Had to do better in stopping Marshall’s cross from causing chaos for the first goal.

Dean Lewington - 5 - Never looked in control as Marshall took him to the cleaners.

Joe Walsh - 5 - Looked as though he struggled to read the game, and was pulled all over the place by Billy Clarke.

Paul Downing - 6 - Caught flat-footed for Bradford’s second, but looked solid in the second half.

George Baldock - 6 - An attacking option on the right as Dons forced the issue in the second half. Squandered a good chance though.

Darren Potter - 5 - Picked up an early injury but played on for half an hour with it. Made more of an impact in allowing Carruthers on.

Ed Upson - 6 - Gave the ball away in the build up to Bradford’s second, but was in the right place at the right time to score his first for the club late on.

Daniel Powell - 6 - Started really well again, but faded in the middle. Finished promisingly, but needed to make earlier decisions.

GC Williams - 6 - Anonymous again in the first half, a near-miss aside, but was a key man in leading the recovery. Replaced by Dean Bowditch.

Kieran Agard - 6 - After a Hollywood debut, didn’t get much time on the ball to make a difference.

Nicky Maynard - 5 - A lot of running for no reward, but must get more involved to win over the doubters creeping in.


Samir Carruthers - 7 - A late fist half substitute who changed the complexion of the game for Dons. Lively, keen, insightful.

Dean Bowditch - 6 - Added a new threat up front.

Top Don: Samir Carruthers
