Midfielder George Baldock spoke of his delight after netting his first MK Dons goal on the ground he made his full debut back in 2011.
Baldock, 20, was handed his first professional start by manager Karl Robinson at Boundary Park three years ago and he marked his return to Greater Manchester on Tuesday with a sweet right-footed strike from 25-yards which gave the Dons an early lead they never surrendered.
The result, the side’s first in the League away from home on a Tuesday night, saw Baldock and his team-mates close the gap on the play-off places to just six points and after the match the young midfielder told MK Dons Player: “These type of wins sometimes mean a lot more. Obviously any win feels great because a win is a win but to grind out a result like that and be part of a back four which, I believe stayed strong at the end, was really pleasing.
“It was a great feeling to score. I saw a little gap and I just wacked it, I’m not going to say I tried to place it; luckily it nestled in the corner. It was such a good finish from Izale as well, so composed, and that’s the Izale McLeod the fans love to see.
“The three points were very important. We’ve never felt as though we were playing any differently on Tuesdays but tonight we deserved it.”
