Walsall 1-2 MK Dons

Walsall 1-2 MK Dons

Walsall   1 - 2   MK Dons

MK Dons' Sam Baldock and Danny Woodards gave the Football League's youngest boss Karl Robinson a winning start to his managerial career.

Baldock fired home from Luke Chadwick's pass after Saddlers keeper Jon Brain spilled a Jermaine Easter through ball.

Manny Smith equalised for under-par Walsall when he headed home from Julian Gray's corner.

But Woodards grabbed the winner with a powerful stooping header from an Angelo Balanta flag kick.


MK Dons manager Karl Robinson told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"The enthusiasm for the Milton Keynes shirt today was immense. I just hope that continues now until the end of the season.

"I am disappointed how we conceded a goal through a set-piece.

"The fans travelled in the hundreds today and for us it was magnificent. We just want to make them proud."
