Chuks Aneke’s third goal of the season was all MK Dons needed to see off Fleetwood and record their first League One win at Stadium MK since September.Robbie Neilson’s Dons were winless in five league games heading into this clash with play-off chasing Fleetwood, but Aneke’s strike just before half-time settled any nerves.And they saw out victory with a professional, defensive second-half display.

After a pretty lacklustre first period, the hosts took the lead moments before the break when Aneke collected the ball on the edge of the area and smashed a stunning left-footed strike past Alex Cairns and into the bottom corner.Uwe Rosler’s side fashioned their best chance of the game shortly after the hour.Confusion in the Dons’ defence allowed space for Jordy Hiwula inside the six-yard box, but his subsequent strike on the turn was superbly saved by Lee Nicholls in the home goal.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsMK Dons1Nicholls2Williams5Wootton19Ebanks-LandellBooked at 70mins12Golbourne6Upson26Gilbey7AriyibiSubstituted forLewingtonat 87’minutes10Aneke11PawlettBooked at 57minsSubstituted forNesbittat 82’minutesBooked at 90mins14AgardSubstituted forSeagerat 74’minutesSubstitutes3Lewington4Walsh13Sietsma15Seager18McGrandles21Nesbitt31Thomas-AsanteFleetwood21Cairns9BurnsSubstituted forHunterat 61’minutes5Eastham12BolgerBooked at 76mins38CargillSubstituted forEkpoloat 61’minutes3Bell4O’NeillSubstituted forSowerbyat 69’minutes8Dempsey18Glendon7Hiwula-Mayifuila44ColeSubstitutes1Neal6Pond15Rodgers20Ekpolo22Hunter23Schwabl28SowerbyReferee:Brett HuxtableAttendance:7,827Match StatsHome TeamMK DonsAway TeamFleetwoodPossessionHome53%Away47%ShotsHome6Away10Shots on TargetHome1Away1CornersHome2Away6FoulsHome10Away13Live TextPosted at Match ends, MK Dons 1, Fleetwood Town 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+6′ Second Half ends, MK Dons 1, Fleetwood Town 0.Posted at 90’+6′ Corner, MK Dons.
