Ipswich Town's reserves fell to their first league defeat in more than a year with a 3-0 defeat at the MK Dons yesterday.

The Town second string, who have already been crowned champions, was full of players with first team experience, however they were well below par in the blustery conditions.

The Dons victory avenges their recent 12-1 trashing by Ipswich in the reverse fixture and ends Ipswich's 100% Pontin's Holiday Combination League East Division.

After Gary Roberts and Liam Trotter had missed early chances, the home side went ahead courtesy of a penalty after Chris Casement had pulled down an attacker inside the area.

With the wind behind them in the second half, the hosts doubled their advantage after 74 minutes following a mix-up between Jai Reason and Ed Upson on the edge of the box.

The third goal came in the 84th minute.
