MK Dons 1-0 Hartlepool
Ryan Lowe scored for the third successive League One match as MK Dons beat basement club Hartlepool United.
Lowe latched on to Darren Potter's cross and placed a precise side-footed volley into the corner of the net.
Angelo Balanta, Luke Chadwick and Dean Lewington went close for the hosts, while Shaun Williams had a goal ruled out for a shove.
Hartlepool, who are without a win in 21 games, rarely threatened but their best chance fell to Jonathan Franks.
