Gallagher's goal was enough to give PNE a measure of revenge!
Buoyed by a four-one win to begin the Championship season MK Dons had an early chance when their own Gallagher (Sam), combined with Bowditch following a good run into the box, firing wide with Lewington then crossing into Bowditch, who saw his effort via a deflection off Wright, kept out by PNE 'keeper Pickford.
Johnson, at the end of a Preston counter attack shot wide of Martin's goal before the MK Dons 'keeper was beaten by Gallagher (28) when another counter attack involving Keane and Garner ended with the former Scottish international showing great feet and a composed finish.
Another chance, again for Johnson similar to his first saw him fire wide with both sides appealing for first half penalties that didn't come.
Clarke thought he had added a second but his header was disallowed for a foul on MK Dons 'keeper Martin and even though Hugill came off the bench to be sent off for a stamp on McFadzean Preston's 10-men saw out the win.
Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most in this one-nil win over MK Dons?
