Milton Keynes 2nds left Witney with bitter sweet memories as they won 3-1.

The home side struggled to cope with MKs speed on the break and soon they were behind when Mark Sibson fired them ahead.

It wasn’t long before MK doubled their lead courtesy of a Callum Clarke drag flick.

And just before the break it was 3-0 thanks to a fantastic team breakaway goal. Sibson dispossessed a Witney player outside the MK D and released Clarke who stormed up the pitch, returned it to Sibson who slipped it to Neil Lunn who made no mistake.

After the break the visitors started to conserve their energy and kept possession better, which limited chances.

With five minutes left, MK were reduced to nine men. First Paul Hutchinson was given a yellow card for a bad tackle and then Sibson was given his marching orders for the same offence.

Witney made the numerical advantage pay and they grabbed a late consolation goal, denying a solid MK a deserved clean sheet.
