Carl Baker joined MK Dons from Coventry in 2014

MK Dons kept their League One automatic promotion hopes alive with three second-half goals against Doncaster.

Dean Bowditch put the hosts ahead with a fortunate finish as a clearance bounced off his head and looped in.

Carl Baker showed some fine footwork in the box before smashing in a second and then rounded off the win with a slotted finish into the bottom right corner.

Karl Robinson's Dons remain a point behind second-placed Preston North End with two league games to go.
