An abysmal MK Dons performance saw them fall to a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of promotion-chasing Lincoln City. 

A Brennan Johnson hat-trick and a Fisher own goal were enough to comfortably see off Martin’s side. 

Contrary to the score line, the first half provided little in the way of opportunities for both sides. 

The home side fashioned the only real chance of the opening half hour, Brennan Johnson flashing a shot across goal that nobody in red was able to meet. 

Former Don Regan Poole was then fortunate to remain on the pitch, coming in late and high on Sorinola – the Lincoln bench’s protests suggested the Dons academy graduate was making a meal of it, but the 20-year-old seemed in some discomfort. 

And another Lincoln player was lucky to get away with one, Johnson late in on Laird. The Nottingham Forest loanee had been booked just minutes before, but Bobby Madley opted not to take things further. 

Minutes later, a poor Scott Fraser pass was latched onto by Johnson – the forward, however, seeing his effort comfortably deflected over the bar by Darling. 

The hosts then had another great chance as the first 45 came to a close, but squandered the opportunity after a loose O’Riley pass had been picked up. HT 0-0. 

In the second half, though, MK Dons completely fell apart. 

Johnson opened the scoring after some Dons calamity at the back, slamming home past Fisher. 1-0. 

He then repeated the feat in similar style, getting into the area and finishing to double his side’s advantage. 2-0. 

Johnson then completed his hat-trick from the spot, despite having to re-take. 3-0. 

Twenty minutes passed in which the Dons didn’t concede – but still looked far from being in the tie – before a free-kick then came back off of the post, hit Fisher’s back, and trickled in for a fourth. 4-0

From there, it really was game over for the Dons, who looked completely hopeless. 

Sorinola fashioned their only real chance of the half, though his effort ended up in what is normally the away end. FT 4-0. 

A disappointing result for Dons, whose season has well and truly come to an end at this point.
