MK Dons strengthened their League One play-off ambitions as they came from behind to beat Bury.
David Amoo rounded David Martin to give Bury the lead, before Dean Bowditch nodded in from close range to equalise.
Bury's Giles Coke was sent off for two yellow cards before Bowditch made it 2-1 from the spot following Cameron Belford's foul on Alan Smith.
Dons substitute James O'Shea made some space for himself in the box but could only shoot wide in a quiet second half.
VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
MK Dons manager Karl Robinson told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"It was a weird game. The pitch didn't help at times. I thought it dried up.
"They went two banks of four and I thought Mark Carrington was excellent in midfield (for Bury).
"I was disappointed with the chances we missed. We dilly-dallied on the edge of the box when we needed to be a bit more ruthless.
"But you've got to take it into context - it's difficult to win two consecutive home games regardless of who you are."
