Tonight is as good as it getsish but great to hear our County cousins left their game early - did Wetherspoons have an offer on ?

Can’t believe 16000 really turned up to watch that carp? Still , suppose it was worth it just to see some decent MK Dons’ goals.

I missed the build-up to Northampton's disallowed goal. Can anyone else who was watching on iFollow confirm whether it was definitely offside? Anyway, whether or not we got lucky, there is something particularly satisfying about scoring from a quickly taken free kick while the opposition are still complaining. Would love to know how many seconds there were between us picking the ball out of our own net and Nombe scoring at the other end; must have been less than a minute.
I make it 25 seconds from one net to the other. Brilliant quick thinking from City!

Northampton’s manager is not happy — perhaps he should teach his players to play to the whistle and not celebrate prematurely:

‘ We had some great chances and I feel a little bit aggrieved about the disallowed goal. “They played quickly but we were off celebrating, so it’s a tough one to take.” ‘

All I know is I saw the lino flag v promptly, so I was chilled 😌
