MK Dons have begun the League One season with a 1-1 draw at Doncaster thanks to a late Baily Cargill equaliser.

Doncaster’s Madger Gomes put them in front and it looked as though it would bring victory for Rovers in the late stages.

But with time running out, Cargill got the ball over the line to ensure a share of the points as League One returned.

It was the first League One game since the start of March, and a familiar-ish face given Doncaster beat MK Dons in the last game before lockdown.

The Dons began positively in South Yorkshire, with 2 penalty appeals before Joe Bursik denied Lasse Sorensen.

Stoke keeper Bursik would also deny David Kasumu and Cargill, while Regan Poole and Carlton Morris hit efforts wide.

Perhaps the chance of the half came on a Dons counter, with a fine recovery by Doncaster’s Taylor Richards seeing him block a Sam Nombe shot.

Failing to take chances would sure enough have consequences. Doncaster took the lead through Gomes, with the Spanish midfielder bending a first-time strike past Lee Nicholls.

A much scrappier game then ensued as Doncaster tried to protect their lead, and it took the Dons a lot more work to create chances.

Eventually, one would come and be taken in the final minutes. A flowing team move ended with Cargill getting the ball in the back of the net.

Cargill and Nombe would miss further chances in added time to win it for the visitors and take a first ever win at Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium, but in the end, it was honours even on day one.
