Rovers shoot down Dons: Match Review

Published Add your comment

Jo Kuffour's strike gave Bristol Rovers a 1-0 victory over fellow play-off outsiders MK Dons.

Chris Lines fired in a shot after his free-kick had been blocked and it was deflected in by team-mate Jo Kuffour in the 54th minute.

It was a frustrating day for Dons boss Paul Ince, who saw Jermaine Easter miss a second-half penalty and Mathias Doumbe sent off for a second booking in injury time.

Easter had the chance to equalise after 63 minutes when Danny Coles pulled back Luke Chadwick, but Rovers keeper Mikkel Andersen tipped the shot onto a post.

Andersen also made important saves from an Easter header and a close-range shot from Mark Randall in a game that could have gone either way.

Dons goalkeeper Stuart Searle did well to deny Darryl Duffy and Kuffour and on the balance of play the visitors could consider themselves unlucky losers.

Their misery was compounded when Doumbe was booked and then red-carded for a two-footed challenge in the dying seconds.
