We would probably have settled for a point before the game … but left a freezing MK a couple of hours later knowing that a better display would have brought all three points on Tuesday evening.
A 1-1 draw took us up to joint second but it was a poor match, the home side showing little of their so-called quality passing football while Wednesday also lacked fluency and never looked like grabbing the game by the scruff of the neck.
In a game of few chances, both goals were scored by the opposition.
Luke Chadwick’s 20-yarder on 15 minutes bounced down off the crossbar, onto the back of the diving Stephen Bywater and into the net.
Twelve minutes later we were level when Chris Sedgwick’s cross was turned into his own goal by defender Gary MacKenzie.
Wednesday, with loanee John Bostock making his debut in the second half, threatened after the break with two headers from Reda Johnson and a long-range effort by David Prutton.
However, we had to settle for a point which took us into joint second with Huddersfield and a point clear of Sheff U, who have a game in hand.
