Supersub O'Shea rescues Dons

BY foxsports • September 19, 2012

MK Dons substitute Jay O'Shea stepped off the bench to rescue a point for Karl Robinson's side in a 1-1 draw against high-flying Notts County.

O'Shea curled home an exquisite 68th-minute strike to cancel out Neal Bishop's long-range opener for County, but the Dons' 100% home record came to an end in Tuesday night's League One encounter at stadium:mk.

County bossed the first half and Jamal Campbell-Ryce had a shot well-saved by David Martin before Bishop put the visitors ahead after 25 minutes, smashing a swerving 25-yard drive into the bottom corner.

Martin then superbly pushed wide a curling free-kick from Alan Judge as the Dons struggled to contain a rampant County in the first period.

The home side improved after the break and substitute O'Shea equalised after 68 minutes, curling a neat finish past Bartosz Bialkowski from the edge of the box.

Shaun Williams also had a rasping 25-yard drive tipped over the crossbar by Bialkowski, but despite late pressure, the Dons were unable to force a winning goal.
