MK Dons picked up a point on their travels as they played out a goalless draw with Newport County in South Wales.

Neither one of the home side’s Nick Townsend or the Dons’ Craig MacGillivray would be beaten over 90 minutes, and while the Dons did have their moments going forward, it wasn’t enough to find a breakthrough to win the contest.

The result sees the Dons slip a spot to 13th in the League Two table, though they are four points off the play-offs and are unbeaten in 3 league matches.

Mike Williamson’s side had begun as the busier side in South Wales, but Newport had early chances with Omar Bogle having a shot blocked before Shane McLoughlin hit the side-netting.

Max Dean would come close for the visitors just after the half-hour after he was kept out by Townsend.

Bogle would later curl an effort wide of the mark, as the two sides entered the break with no goals to show for their respective efforts.

Will Evans hit the side-netting just after half-time, before the Dons began to enjoy a long period of possession.

Joe Tomlinson fired off-target after breaking Newport’s offside trap, before Townsend thwarted Alex Gilbey and denied a curled effort by Tomlinson.

In the final stages, Conor Grant would see a shot blocked before substitute Mo Eisa narrowly failed to reach a cross from the Dons’ right that would’ve surely yielded a goal had he just been able to connect.

It was duly honours even for MK Dons, who have a week off with next weekend’s home game against AFC Wimbledon postponed. MK Dons are next in action in an EFL Trophy match at home to Northampton on November 21st, followed by League Two games against Salford City and Grimsby Town in the following seven days.
