Blackburn's Championship season continued with a defeat at the Stadium:MK against MK Dons on Saturday.

An unbeaten Blackburn run was ended, as MK Dons won for the first time in seven-matches, when an early Henley sending off making a difference. From the resulting penalty Reeves opened the scoring with second half goals from Church and a second from Reeves to condemn Rovers to a three-nil defeat.

Henley's midweek joy when he was part of a Wales squad that made it to the Euros was turned to despair when his foul on Murphy not only brought MK Dons a penalty it also saw him sent off early on.

Reeves (11) made no mistake with the resulting spot kick, sending Blackburn 'keeper Steele the wrong way to, amazingly, give MK Dons the lead in a league game for the first time in almost two-month!

The best hope of a Blackburn way back into the game came from Rhodes but his volley was kept out by MK Dons 'keeper Martin who made a fine save in the second half, had that gone in things might have been different?

With 20-minutes to play Church (71) headed home from a close range, with Murphy again involved with him providing the cross, to make it two.

A last minute goal from Reeves (89), in a move that also involved Baker, former Rovers trialist Maynard and Brighton loan Forster-Caskey, wrapped up a first win for MK Dons since August and a biggest win in their Championship history, which granted only stretches this season!
