Rhys Healey’s 93rd minute penalty proved to be the match-winner when Dale were last at Stadium:MK in January 2020.

Ian Henderson had given Dale a 16th minute lead, before Carlton Morris levelled for MK early in the second half.

It looked as though Dale would hold out for a point, only for Healey to convert that late, late penalty after a foul on him by Jimmy Keohane.
