Jake Hesketh was unfortunate for his stunning long-range drive not to earn a share of the points for loan club MK Dons at home to Swindon Town over the weekend.

Hesketh’s superb effort had drawn the hosts level on the hour mark only for Keshi Anderson to restore Swindon’s lead immediately from the restart.

Former QPR man Michael Doughty struck twice either side of that dramatic second-half spell to set up a 3-2 win and nudge MK Dons out of the play-offs.

Elsewhere in the Football League, Harrison Reed’s Blackburn became the eighth victim of Bristol City’s remarkable winning run at Ewood Park.

Midfielder Reed completed the full 90 minutes for Rovers who themselves saw a streak of four consecutive home victories come to an end courtesy of Eros Pisano’s second-half strike.

Further down the pyramid, Ben Rowthorn’s Truro City were beaten 3-2 by Billericay Town.

In La Liga, Sofiane Boufal and Wesley Hoedt’s Celta Vigo slipped to a 3-1 defeat at high-flying Getafe. Celta were in front inside two minutes but a red card for forward Maxi Gomez before half-time opened the door for the home side.

All three of their goals came after the dismissal as Jaime Mata’s double and Jorge Vidal wrapped up the points for the Madrid-based club.

Jordy Clasie’s Feyenoord meanwhile bounced back from defeat last week to thrash De Graafschap 4-0 and keep their slim chances of UEFA Champions League qualification alive.

Clasie played from start to finish at De Kuip on a day when former Saint Cuco Martina made his debut, as goals from Tony Vilhena, Calvin Verdonk, Jeremiah St Juste and Jens Toornstra sealed victory for the hosts.
