MK Dons 1-0 Northampton

Aaron Wilbraham got the only goal of the game against Northampton just after the hour to hand Roberto di Matteo his first points as MK Dons manager.

Wilbraham poked the ball home from close range on 66 minutes, the goal given despite defender Danny Jackman's claims he had cleared off the line.

Earlier, Wilbraham had missed a sitter when he missed the target with a header from close range.

The Cobblers came closest when Adebayo Akinfenwa fluffed a one-on-one.
