On this Day: 2008

10 March 2014

On this day in 2008, MK Dons climbed back to the top of League 2 with a hard-fought win at Chesterfield.

Winger Lloyd Dyer struck a priceless winner on 70 minutes, just 60 seconds after Chesterfield’s Jamie Lowry had cancelled out Keith Andrews’ first-half opener.

The Dons skipper put the side ahead with 12th goal of the season after tapping in a cross from the outstanding Alan Navarro before home team levelled against the run of play through Lowry, whose shot from the edge of the box took a wicked deflection and bounced past the helpless Willy Gueret.

However, just a minute later, Dyer raced onto a neat back-heel from substitute Aaron Wilbraham and finished past Chesterfield ‘keeper Barry Roche to secure a valuable three points for Ince and his side, who jumped above Peterborough United and into first place.
