Mark Jackson wins first league game in charge at MK Dons

Former Leeds coach Mark Jackson made a winning start to his career as head coach of MK Dons on Monday.

The Dons had been without a league win at home since the start of August, but a second half strike from Daniel Harvie was enough to seal all three points.

Mark Jackson named his first starting XI as MK Dons Coach, making two changes from the Carabao Cup tie with Leicester City – Bradley Johnson and Nathan Holland both came in to the lineup for Dawson Devoy and Conor Grant. The only goal of the game came after 58 minutes when Josh McEachran’s corner fell to Harvie, who curled the ball into the bottom corner from outside the area.

The win sees the club move out of the relegation zone, just one point behind fifth-from-bottom Accrington. Mark Jackson officially joined MK Dons last week, after serving Leeds United for seven seasons. The 45-year old climbed up the ranks from U18 coach to first team coach at Elland Road before joining The Dons as head coach.
