4:50pm

90 – SUB – Mark Carrington on for Tom Soares.

4:40pm

79 – SUBS – Alan Smith on for Izale McLeod. Zeli Ismail on for Daniel Powell.

4:32pm

71 – John-Lewis fires just past the bottom left hand post after being put through following a determined run by Tom Soares.

4:29pm

68 - McLeod mis-kicks in the centre of the Bury penalty area with the goal at his mercy. The balls broke to the Dons striker after a low cross from the right was only half-cleared.

4:26pm

66 - GOAL - MK Dons 1 BURY 1 - Steven Schumacher swivels on the edge of the box and hooks a right-footed volley into the top left-hand corner of the net.

4:25pm

65 - BOOKED - Bowditch is given a yellow for a foul on Schumacher as Bury broke

4:14pm

54 - SUB - Craig Jones on for Tom Hopper

4:11pm

Craig Jones looks like he may come on, not sure who for?

4:09pm

49 – McLeod does well to make space for himself in the box, but skews his shot wide from a central position.

4:06pm

46 - Schumacher has the first shot of the half, John-Lewis heading it down into his path, but the captain's long-range effort goes high and wide.

4:05pm

K/O: Bury kick off the second half, with both sides unchanged...

3:48pm

H/T: MK Dons 1 Bury 0

3:48pm

44 – Carson gathers a fierce left-foot shot from Chicksen at the second attempt. The MK Dons right-back strikes it from 30 yards but the ball moved in the air.
45 – MK Dons hit the post after a deflected shot from Izale McLeod loops up off Sodje, leaving Carson stranded, but the ball bounces across the Bury box and the rebound is cleared to safety.

 

3:44pm

41 - John-Lewis clears on the line after Carson's fumbled clearance from an MK Dons corner falls at the feet of Kay, who shoots towards the right-hand post from 16 yards out.

3:38pm

36 - `Schumacher is little optimistic, dragging a left-footed shot wide from 30 yards.

3:36pm

34 – Hopper heads wide at the back post on the right after a flowing Bury move ended with a deep cross from Skarz on the left.

3:34pm

33 - BOOKED - Daniel Powell is shown a yellow for diving in the Bury box, trying to win a penalty for MK Dons.

3:28pm

24 - John-Lewis has a header cleared off the line by MK right-back Adam Chicksen. The chance followed a scramble after a Joe Skarz corner, which Efe Sodje nodded back in and John-Lewis redirected into the top right corner, but the Dons full-back nodded it over.

26 - Steven Schumacher has a tap-in from six yards deflected just wide, then Martin tips over Sodje's header from the resulting corner.

3:21pm

19 - John-Lewis is unlucky not to win a penalty after being brought down by MK Dons keeper David Martin, but the linesman flags for a free-kick the other way. 

3:17pm

15 - GOAL - MK DONS 1 Bury 0 - Dean Bowditch, who scored a hat-trick when the two sides met at Gigg Lane earlier in the season, beat temporary right-back David Worrall easily before drifting inside past two midfielders and curling a right foot shot home. His drive was hit low through a crowd of bodies, but went straight through Bury keeper Trevor Carson, who should have had it covered.

3:13pm

11 - John-Lewis has another chance in the right channel after being set up following a long Trevor Carson free-kick, but his shot was again blocked, this time by Antony Kay.

3:12pm

9 – Bury earn the first corner of the match after Lenell John-Lewis turns neatly in the box but his close-range shot from a tight angle on the right is cut out by MK Dons centre-back Shaun Williams. Tom Soares then had a free header from Joe Skarz’s corner but was off-balanced at the back post and could not direct it on target.

3:04pm

Bury start pretty much as predicted, with Worrall at right-back and Ebanks-Landell in a midfield holding role. The only difference is that Hopper has started on the right of a five-man midfield, with Soares on the left.

3:01pm

K/O: MK Dons kick off...

2:34pm

Team news

Blackwell warned he would have to play players out of position ahead of today's trip to MK Dons and it already looks as if he has been true to his word.

After reverting winger David Worrall to an attacking centre-midfield role of late, it looks like he may be asked to play at right-back in place of Doherty today.

It is also likely that Blackwell will continue with a five-man midfield, meaning Tom Soares playing on the right, Hopper on the left, and Ebanks-Landell joining Steven Schumacher and Zac Thompson in the middle.

While Lenell John-Lewis returns up front.

The big concern is that Blackwell has named just four players on the bench, refusing to blood any of the Shakers' Under-21s despite a squad crises brought on by illness, injury and departures.

2:22pm

Full line-ups

MK DONS: Martin; Chicksen, Kay, Williams, Lewington; Potter, Harley; Powell, Lowe, Bowditch; McLeod.

Subs: Otsemobor, Kouo-Doumbe, Mackenzie, Smith, Alli, Rasulo, Ismail.

BURY: Carson; Worrall, Sodje, Hughes, Skarz; Hopper, Thompson, Ebanks-Landell, Schumacher, Soares; John-Lewis.

Subs: C Jones, Carrington, Dibble, Wylde.

2:19pm

Kevin Blackwell's side return from a much-needed break since their 1-0 defeat at home to Tranmere on New Year's Day.

In the intervening 12 days, they have allowed experienced midfielder Peter Sweeney go to AFC Wimbldeon on a free and lost loan defender Matt Doherty, who has gone back to Wolves.

There has been some good news though, with other loan signings Zac Thompson and Tom Hopper extending until the end of the season, while Troy Hewitt, Gregg Wydle and, most recently, Ethan Ebanks-Landell staying for an extra month.

Well done to the lads,probably the most professional performance of the season and what a brilliant goal by Schumacher on his 100th league appearance for the club.I was very critical of Blackwell's team selection against Tranmere but today he got it just right.Worrall put in an excellent shift at right back and for almost the first time this season there were no passengers.We can't afford to carry players like Wylde and Healy who are unwilling to graft and I suspect that Blackwell now realises that Andrai Jones is a million miles away from being a league standard player.Poor Healy, that five minute cameo on New year's Day must have exhausted him beyond belief! We really must learn how to conserve his energy.Perhaps two minutes playing time every other month wouldn't be too much for the fat fraud.

I would totally agree, a very solid game by all the lads and we could have won this one...If we can play like that through this next few games against many of the league leaders, we might pull out this mess.
Healy is a joke....all he wants is to a place to hang his hat so he can be picked for the next International Game.

I think we can take the match this Saturday and who knows against The Blades, they are all over the map.
