Dons fell two goals behind to goals from Marlon Jackson and a penalty from former Dons midfielder Mark Randall before Dean Bowditch emerged from the bench with a brace, either side of a Ben Tilney screamer. Here's what happened to the team which started in Wales that day.
1. Lee Nicholls
The game at Newport was Nicholls' first game in a Dons shirt, and he has hardly looked back since. Made the club's number one by the end of the season, Nicholls has been first choice keeper since.
2. George Williams
Like Nicholls, was making his first start on his return to the club. Williams is still a regular in the first team today, captaining Dons on many occasions.
3. Scott Wootton
Big things were expected of the former Leeds defender when he arrived at Stadium MK. Captained the side on the night at Newport on his debut, but a knee injury suffered at the end of August ruled him out for the rest of the season. Returned to the side the next season but Dons were relegated. Now playing at Plymouth.
4. Oran Jackson
Played a handful of games for the club until his release last summer. After a brief spell in Iceland, he now plays for Billericay Town.
