Match ends, Scunthorpe United 1, MK Dons 1.
MK Dons missed the chance to go top of League One after drawing with Scunthorpe at Glanford Park.
Jonson Clarke-Harris was first to test Scunthorpe goalkeeper Luke Daniels on his debut, while Dele Alli headed against the post for the visitors.
Dons keeper David Martin had a goal kick intercepted by Paddy Madden, who set up Tom Hopper for a tap-in finish.
Martin denied Madden before Kyle McFadzean earned Dons a point with a header from a Carl Baker corner.
MK Dons, who have lost just once in 17 league matches, remain third in the table and two points behind Swindon Town and Bristol City in the automatic promotion places.
The draw moves the Iron three points clear of the relegation places.
Scunthorpe United manager Mark Robins told BBC Radio Humberside:
"It's frustrating because we've conceded a set play. It's pleasing because we weren't great in the first half and we couldn't really pass it to each other very well, but second half we were a lot better.
"We spoke about turning them because they're a good side and if you try and play them at their own game, especially when they're pressing, sometimes you will come unstuck.
"We weren't passing it great and we had to do something slightly different and we ended up going a little bit longer at times and trying to stretch the game so that we could then pass it properly, and I thought we had done a little bit better in the second half."
