LOAN WATCH: Kioso begins as Dons fights back to beat Lincoln


Luton defender Peter Kioso

City defender Peter Kioso started as MK Dons produced an impressive second-half riposte to defeat Lincoln City 3-2 in their Ligue 1 clash on Boxing Day.

Kioso was one of four changes made by visiting boss Liam Manning for the clash, as Lincoln took the lead in just four minutes when Warren O’Hora deflected Hakeem Adelakun’s cross into his own net .

The Imps then doubled their advantage four minutes later, with Daniel Harvie handballing in the box and Chris Maguire converting the spot.

Kioso looked to cut the deficit when he was found by Harvie’s delivery, but his touch was too heavy, so he then headed right around a corner.

After the break, the Dons pulled one out after just five minutes when Scott Twine beat Josh Griffiths, before being tied with 15 to go with Matt O’Riley finding the bottom corner.

They then won the match in the 90th minute, Kioso finding Twine whose shot deflected Regan Poole on Griffiths’ wrong foot as the Dons walked away with all three points.

Forward Elliot Lee did not play as both Charlton games were called off due to Covid.

Jake Peck was a late replacement as the Concord Rangers won 3-1 at Billericay in the National League South on Boxing Day.

The midfielder came on with just three minutes left, with the Beach Boys having already done enough to seal the victory.

City youngster Matt Moloney started for Hitchin Town as he claimed a crucial 1-0 Southern League Premier Division victory at Royston Town on Monday night.

Facing the Crows with former Luton captain Ronnie Henry and former Town youngster Isaac Galliford, another Hatters teenager, Callum Stead, scored the only goal of the game.
