MK Dons   1 - 0   Tranmere

MK Dons 1-0 Tranmere

MK Dons 1-0 Tranmere

Jason Puncheon's early goal proved decisive as MK Dons claimed a comfortable win over lowly Tranmere.

The on-loan winger superbly swept home Andros Townsend's cross from 12 yards to notch his fourth goal in five games.

Rovers goalkeeper Luke Daniels kept his side in it with fine stops from Aaron Wilbraham and David McCracken.

And the visitors almost snatched an unlikely point but Chris Shuker's 18-yard shot was tipped around the post by Willy Gueret late on.


MK Dons manager Paul Ince told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"I had a go at the lads at half-time because I thought once we got the first goal, we should have made it easier for ourselves. All of a sudden we thought we were Brazil.

"We just thought we'd score one goal and that was it, job done. Credit to Tranmere, they had a go at us.

"We are not good enough to turn it on and off like a tap."

Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:

"We could have taken something from the game.

"The first five or 10 minutes was a bit slow from both sides, then suddenly they had a little spurt and they scored a good goal.

"But from then on I thought the game was pretty even."
