MK Dons boss Roberto Di Matteo was quick to bemoan his own team's luck and insists the Dons did enough to secure the three points during the 1-1 draw with Huddersfield.

Andy Butler's header cancelled out Sam Baldock's opener but the Terriers could have snatched all three points in the dying minutes when Michael Flynn's shot hit both posts and somehow managed to stay out.

Di Matteo said: "It just doesn't seem to be going our way at the moment. I thought we again deserved to win more than one point and the team played really well. We created some really good chances against quite a defensive Huddersfield and the only negative is the result."

He added: "It looked like Huddersfield came for the point but we broke them down on a few occasions and it was good movement by the team. We just need that little bit of luck.

"Their goal was half a header that deflected off a shoulder and then just bobbled in - there is nothing you can do it about goals like that.

"I don't think they really had many shots but unfortunately that is football."
