Milton Keynes Dons moved level on points with the top three as they edged past Newport County at Stadium MK.

MK Dons had the chance to open the scoring from the spot, but County goalkeeper Joe Day made a superb save from Kieran Agard's effort.

However there was nothing Day could do when Ousseynou Cisse's headed home a Dons corner at the back post to the delight of the home crowd.

MK Dons got a second late on through Chuks Aneke as Newport pushed forward.

The result leaves MK Dons fourth in League Two while Newport remain 15th.
