Greatest save in MK Dons history? Martin just pleased FA Cup tie now over

MK Dons goalkeeper David Martin pulled off the most important save in the club's history during yesterday's highly-charged FA Cup win over AFC Wimbledon.

Former Liverpool keeper Martin, who played two matches for Wimbledon before the club's high-profile move to Milton Keynes, broke the League Two side's hearts by denying Steven Gregory one-on-one late on before Jon Otsemobor's flicked late winner.

Martin was pleased with his finger tip save and said: "It would have obviously been a fairytale for them to be going 2-1 up in the last minute but I'm employed by MK Dons and the chairman here.

"So it's a great thing to make a difference for any team that you play for, let alone in a big game like this that is unique.

"That's what I'm there for at the end of the day - it's great to actually make a difference in a big game.

"I'm just pleased it's all over now."
