Result: Cambridge City earn MK Dons replay in FA Cup

Lowly Cambridge City earn a replay against MK Dons in the first round of the FA Cup with a 0-0 draw at the City Ground.

Southern League Premier Division side Cambridge City have earned a replay against League One's MK Dons in the first round of the FA Cup following a goalless draw at the City Ground.

The visitors enjoyed much of the possession in the opening half and they came close to open the scoring on 20 minutes when Antony Kay's header was cleared off the line by James Brighton.

Luke Chadwick and Darren Potter had further chances for the Dons in the first half, but they were unable to breach the Cambridge defence.

The home side had a rare opportunity soon after the interval when David Martin was forced to turn away Luke Allen's effort.

MK Dons were inches away from making the breakthrough with just over 10 minutes to play, but Stephen Gleeson's header came back off the post before Bamidele Alli had the rebound blocked.

The League One side continued to bombard the Cambridge goal and they hit the woodwork again in the final five minutes as Chadwick's drive found the post.
