Many thanks once again to James Rees for sifting through the archive and turning up this week offering, sadly of a largely forgettable game, I know as I was there suffering with the rest. What is significant is just two of the starting line from that day are still on the books at SMK, and that was less than three years ago.

Portsmouth 2-0 MK Dons

Sky Bet League One

Venue – Fratton Park

This week, we roll back to 2017 and a 2-0 defeat for MK Dons. An Ollie Hawkins double was enough to send MK Dons back home with 3 points lost. 14 minutes into the game, Hawkins got his first and then on 45 minutes he grabbed his second. MK Dons barely challenged Portsmouth throughout, and all in all, a day to forget for Robbie Neilson’s men and the fans that made the journey.

MK Dons Team – Lee Nicholls, Callum Brittain, Scott Wootton, Ethan Ebanks-Landell, Scott Golbourne, Ed Upson, Ouss Cisse, Aidan Nesbitt, Alex Gilbey, Gboly Ariyibi, Osman Sow
