Nantwich Town’s big FA Cup day out at League One MK Dons ended in a disappointing 6-0 defeat.

But the result was a little harsh on the Dabbers who performed heroically for the best part of half an hour before conceding the first goal.

Until Mathias Kouo-Doumbe’s 28th minute header, Nantwich had held firm and gave a good account of themselves.

Two minutes later Dean Bowditch added a second after a neat one-two.

Jimmy Quinn’s boys made it to half-time but any faint hopes of a comeback were finished nine minutes after the restarts when Bowditch added his second with a fine curling free-kick.

Daniel Powell made it 4-0 in the 66th minute, giving Jonathan Brain no chance, before late goals by James O’Shea and 16-year-old substitute George Williams completed the rout.

Nantwich players can hold their heads high despite the scoreline.

They enjoyed 54% of the possession, and gave the hundreds of travelling supporters a great day out inĀ  front of more than 4,000 fans at StadiumMK.
