Chuks Aneke believes MK Dons need to start putting games to bed in order to climb out of the relegation zone.

The Dons shared the spoils with Fleetwood Town on Saturday afternoon as they were held to a 1-1 draw at Highbury.

The men from MK1 were in fine form during the opening 45-minutes as they played some eye-catching football creating numerous chances in the process.

Their pressure was rewarded 20-minutes into the tie thanks to Robbie Muirhead – and what a goal it was.

Ouss Cisse fizzed a pass into Aneke, whose delicate first touch fell into the path of Muirhead. The Scottish forward took one touch to set before curling his effort past Alex Cairns.

Talking to iFollow MK Dons follow the final whistle, Aneke praised Muirhead and the ability he possesses to when on the ball.

“Robbie has a great strike on his left foot – we were delighted for him to see it go in.”

Dan Micciche’s men had a number of chances to add their second of the game, however, going in at the break - the lead stood at just one.

Ten minutes into the second-half, Ike Ugbo ran the length of the field, before then playing a one-two on the edge of the box with Aneke. The Chelsea loanee was denied by the onrushing Cairnes and just seconds later Ashley Hunter leveled for Fleetwood.

“We created a lot of chances - when we go 1-0 up, we need to go 2-0 up and kill games off," Aneke said.

“We’ll need everyone pushing for one cause. We can definitely get out this – but we need to kill games off.”
