MK Dons   3 - 1   Southend

MK Dons 3-1 Southend

MK Dons 3-1 Southend

Mark Carrington's double guided MK Dons to the win over struggling Southend to get their play-off push back on track.

The Dons took the lead on 18 minutes when Jermaine Easter cut the ball back for Carrington, who slotted home.

Southend's Simon Francis hit the post, before Carrington cracked a shot into the corner just after half-time.

With 10 minutes to go Andros Townsend added a third for the Dons, before Southend Matthew Paterson scored in the 89th-minute for the visitors.


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

"It's a win, and any win is always better then the way last Saturday went.

"When you play a new back four alongside each other there is always going to be gaps to expolit, but they're only going to get better as a back four.

"We are more than pleased and just happy to get the three points."

Southend United manager Steve Tilson told BBC Essex:

"It's disappointing because we played well in the first half and we could have had four or five goals in the first half.

"We played ever so well and were the better side in that half by a long way.

"But we conceded early doors again in the second half and that killed us a bit."
