Ty Jenner takes us through the minutes of what was a tough watch as the Dons were schooled for most of the match, and only made it look respectable with two very late goals.
1’ The Dons get us underway here at a sunny Stadium MK!
2’ Peterborough Goal 0-1 – Posh take the lead through Johnson Clarke-Harris who is unmarked at the back post to fire home early on. Thompson is able to get down the right hand side and fizzes it in to the former Dons striker. A terrible start for the Dons. 0-1.
5’ Dons, yet again look off their game and a level below the visitors. Potentially in for a long afternoon here in the City of Milton Keynes.

9’ A delightful ball from Ward is blocked by O’Hora to prevent Clarke-Harris a clear chance on goal.
