PAST ENCOUNTER: MK DONS

5 November 2015




Brighton & Hove Albion (0) 2

Lua Lua, Murray

MK Dons (0) 0

League One, 11 September 2010.

Attendance: 6,683.

Brighton moved up into seventh position, maintaining their unbeaten record at Withdean in League One.

The result disappointed MK Dons boss Karl Robinson, who admitted: “They are a good team and you have got to give them credit because they play in the right way when they go forward.” The victory was the Seagulls’ first ever league victory over MK Dons, at the fifth attempt. Milton Keynes won the return fixture 1-0 in February 2011.
