The match got off to an exciting start with the
scores at 1-1 with barley ten minutes on the clock, Ian Hodges
slotting past the 'keeper to cancel out Gary Smith's early opener.
It took 20 minutes for the League one side to retake the lead
through Serge Makofo as he slammed home the rebound after Malvin
Mamara had hit the crossbar.
Slough had their chances
to get back into the game, with several free-kicks and corners that
eluded everyone in the area and a one-on-one involving Leigh Mason
and MK 'keeper Webb. Mason forced a good save but should have
Gary Smith scored his second of the game to
extend the home sides' advantage when a clever free-kick found him
in space to slot home with Slough 'keeper Michael Parkin well
Sam Baldock ran through the Slough defence to
finish off for 4-1 before Nick McKoy found the back of the net with
a low curling shot.
The Rebels didn't give up though.
The visitors continued to threaten with Gareth McCleary curling a
free-kick just beyond the far post with the goalkeeper well beaten.
Malvin Kamara nipped the ball off Steve Daly before rounding Parkin
and firing into the back of the net for the home sides 6th goal.
That was the final kick of the game in what was a comfortable win
for the MK Dons, with clinical finishing and individual skill being
the only thing that separated the two sides.
