Notts County 1-1 MK Dons

Jeff Hughes scored a late penalty to earn Notts County a point in a heated clash with promotion-chasing MK Dons.

The visitors went ahead when Dean Bowditch's corner was controlled on the chest by centre-half Tom Flanagan before he acrobatically volleyed home.

County boss Martin Allen and Dons assistant John Gorman were both sent to the stands in the second half.

The hosts equalised when Adam Smith was adjudged to have handled in the area and Hughes converted the spot kick.


MK Dons manager Karl Robinson told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"First half we were the better team, second half they were by far the better team.

"They had two or three good chances to get something out the game, I'm just disappointed that the goal they got wasn't a fair goal.

"This is tough here, on a windy day, when we've played Tuesday night, this is as tough as you're going to get."

Notts County manager Martin Allen told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"The team played really well, the crowd got behind the lads and everyone contributed out on the pitch.

"Their goalkeeper made some fantastic saves. I was so proud of all the players to come back like that from conceding at a set-play.

"The lads stepped up to the plate and were magnificent."
