MK Dons come out on top in a stunning 4-3 derby victory over Wycombe Wanderers at Stadium MK to remain 4th in Npower League One.

The Dons went ahead through Dean Bowditch in the 14th-minute but the game came alive after the break when the visitors scored twice in a minute through Stuart Beavon and Marcello Trotta to put the Chairboys ahead.

The home side reacted well and Bowditch scored his second just three-minutes later to level the tie before two more goals from Jabo Ibehre and Mathias Doumbe made the score 4-2.

In the final minute a long-range strike from Beavon beat David Martin to put Wanderers just one goal behind but that was not enough and the three points belonged to MK.

Karl Robinson, the MK Dons manager, praised his side; "What a good win. The football we played was sensational.

"We have literally steamrollered sides in this month and it has been magnificent to watch. But we have got to cut out the silly mistakes."

Wycombe boss, Gary Waddock took positives from the defeat saying; "With three goals away from home you would more often than not like to get a point or three from the game, but it wasn't to be."
