MK Dons 1-1 Swindon

MK Dons continued their unbeaten start to the season with a draw against 10-man Swindon Town.

On-loan midfielder Alex Pritchard put the visitors ahead with a fine curling free-kick.

Swindon's Nathan Byrne was then sent off for a stamp on Shaun Williams, before striker Patrick Bamford poked past Wes Foderingham to equalise.

George Baldock thought his shot had secured MK Dons a late winner but he was ruled offside.

"The first half was very even. It was a wonder strike by Pritchard that put them in front.

"In the second half we were by far the better team. George Baldock was onside by a yard. Fact.

"We've not spent a penny on our team and they've spent half a million."

Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper told BBC Wiltshire:

"If we'd had 11 men on the pitch we'd have won the game. I think we could have possibly killed the game off in the first half.

"We had a bit of plan, we tried to catch them on the break.

"I'm disappointed. It's never a sending-off [Nathan Byrne's red card]. He's made a genuine attempt for the ball, he's not left the ground.

"With 10 men we've defended fantastically."
