Stevenage   0 - 0   MK Dons

League Two Stevenage battled to a goalless draw with MK Dons to earn an FA Cup first round replay.

Stacey Long forced two good saves from visiting goalkeeper David Martin and Ben May saw a header go narrowly wide.

The visitors went close through Peter Leven's shot that went just over and Angelo Balanta's low drive.

As the tie opened up, Yemi Odubade forced a good save from Martin and substitute Jemal Johnson went agonisingly close for the Dons.


Stevenage manager Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"We probably had the better chances to win it. There weren't a lot of clear-cut chances in the ninety minutes.

"We're keeping clean sheets which is a positive. They will be pleased to come here and keep a clean sheet too.

"They have got a big wage bill and have got some expensive players there. For us to get on top of the fifty-third best team in the country at the start of play is a credit to the lads."

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"We are looking forward to getting them back to our place and playing some football.

"I am disappointed we didn't get the win. I felt we sat in and made it difficult for them. They play a certain style of football and are extremely difficult to play against here.

"We conducted ourselves in a very professional way, a little bit of class. When we moved the ball we showed how good we can be."
