MK Dons moved up into the play-off places with victory over Tranmere.
The Dons missed a number of first-half chances before Daniel Powell gave them the lead seconds after the interval, thumping home from Jabo Ibehre's pass.
Tranmere twice went close from range through Aaron Creswell and John Welsh but were unable to find a way past Dons keeper David Martin.
And Ibehre sealed the win for the hosts, dribbling free of defender Ash Taylor before rifling in.
Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:
"At half time we were quite comfortable and we were happy with the way things were going.
"But for them to score in the first 14 seconds at the start of the second half - it just killed us.
"They've got good players and they're a good team, but it is disappointing the way the game went."
