MK Dons   2 - 0   Gillingham

MK Dons 2-0 Gillingham

MK Dons 2-0 Gillingham

Second-half goals from Jermaine Easter and Aaron Wilbraham fired MK Dons to victory over Gillingham.

Willy Gueret saved from Curtis Weston and Andy Barcham before Mark Bentley's looping header dropped just wide as Gillingham bossed the early stages.

But Dons responded and Mathias Doumbe headed against the post and 15 minutes later Easter put them ahead when he slotted in from Jason Puncheon's cross.

Wilbraham sealed the win when he lashed in from another Puncheon cross.


Gillingham manager Mark Stimson told BBC Radio Kent:

"It was a decent performance, a lot better than Tuesday (at Brighton).

"Matt Fry was absolutely outstanding for his league debut.

"It was a test for him against a team who are very good at this level and he put a really good shift in."

MK Dons assistant manager Karl Robinson told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"With the calibre of players we have got, the longer the game stays at 0-0 we have enough individuals to win us the game.

"At the start of the season we did say that we felt that we didn't win enough [home] games. We have won six of the last eight here now, so we must be doing the right things."
