Sheffield United 0-1 Milton Keynes Dons

Dele Alli
Dele Alli has now scored nine goals for MK Dons this season

MK Dons moved up to third in League One thanks to Deli Alli's late winner at Sheffield United.

The Blades, who have taken two points from their last four league games at home, enjoyed the better chances throughout but failed to convert.

And they were punished in the 87th minute when Alli stabbed home from a Danny Green free-kick.

Substitute Green was sent off late in injury time for picking up his second yellow card but the Dons held on.

Karl Robinson's side are now two points behind leaders Bristol City with a game in hand, while Sheffield United remain fifth.
