Osman Sow scored on his MK Dons debut to hand his new side their first points of the League One season with a 1-0 win over Gillingham.Sow’s strike was also the Dons’ first goal of the campaign and proved the difference after both sides missed late penalties.Kieran Agard saw his effort saved while Josh Wright blazed over the bar in a dramatic final few minutes at Stadium MK.

Following a drab first half, it was a hopeful ball into the Gillingham box from Aaron Tshibola little more than a minute after the resumption that found Sow lurking at the back post, and the Swede nodded home.The Dons should have doubled their lead 10 minutes from time after Ryan Seager was brought down by Gillingham goalkeeper Tomas Holy inside the box.However, Agard’s resulting spot-kick was well saved by the 25-year-old custodian.Gillingham’s Wright was then given his opportunity to level the tie with his own penalty three minutes from time after Dons goalkeeper Lee Nicholls was judged to have fouled Liam Nash in the box.But the Gills captain blasted his spot-kick over the crossbar as the Dons recorded their first win of the season.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsMK Dons1Nicholls2GB Williams5Wootton19Ebanks-Landell4Walsh7AriyibiSubstituted forUpsonat 81’minutes20TshibolaBooked at 36mins8Cissé16MuirheadSubstituted forPawlettat 52’minutes15Seager9SowSubstituted forAgardat 60’minutesSubstitutes3Lewington6Upson11Pawlett13Sietsma14Agard18McGrandles25BrittainGillingham13Holy5EhmerBooked at 76mins6Zakuani4LaceySubstituted forOldakerat 81’minutes2O’Neill33ByrneBooked at 39mins11L Martin44Wright12Ogilvie9Eaves14ParkerSubstituted forNashat 62’minutesSubstitutes8Hessenthaler19Nugent20Oldaker23Simpson24Cundle26Arnold27NashReferee:Trevor KettleAttendance:7,901Match StatsHome TeamMK DonsAway TeamGillinghamPossessionHome56%Away44%ShotsHome15Away13Shots on TargetHome5Away1CornersHome6Away3FoulsHome10Away15Live TextPosted at Match ends, MK Dons 1, Gillingham 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, MK Dons 1, Gillingham 0.Posted at 90’+3′ Attempt missed.
