MK Dons' teenage defender Keanu Marsh-Brown scored his first career goal as the home side survived a late onslaught to draw 1-1 with Brentford.

Marsh-Brown, on loan from Fulham, slotted the Dons' opener shortly after the break, but Lewis Grabban levelled for Brentford two minutes later, maintaining Nicky Forster's unbeaten record as Bees caretaker boss.

Brentford missed three glorious chances to open the scoring in the first half as they carved a makeshift Dons' defence apart at will.

Myles Weston was first denied one-on-one by Dons' goalkeeper David Martin after racing clear before Grabban fired a good chance wide.

Sam Saunders then broke the offside trap only to side-foot a dreadful effort six yards wide.

The Dons improved after the break and the impressive Marsh-Brown put them ahead three minutes after the restart, slotting in Luke Chadwick's low cross from close range.

But Grabban equalised for Brentford two minutes later when he raced clear on to Leon Legge's pass and drilled a low shot inside the far post beyond the fingertips of Martin.

The Bees piled forward late on, Marcus Bean lashing a 25-yard strike against the crossbar and Gary Alexander heading the rebound over, while Sean O'Hanlon headed just wide for the Dons in the closing seconds.
