LOAN WATCH: Chelsea's Bamford, Villa's Carruthers secure point for MK Dons

by Andrew Maclean

Loan signings Pat Bamford and Samir Carruthers equalized twice for MK Dons in their 2-2 draw with Bristol City on Saturday.

City opened the scoring in the 36th minute and after missing the Dons' best chance of the game, Chelsea youngster Bamford responded seven minutes after the break with a left-footed strike that soared inside the far post.

The Dons fell behind again through Sam Baldock's second goal of the game but it was another loanee, Aston Villa's Carruthers, who would equalize and keep the side's unbeaten record for the season alive.

The Villa winger replaced Jason Benton on the 54th minute mark and made his impact felt with a fine curling strike past City keeper Frank Fielding.

After the game, Carruthers told the Milton Keynes Citizen: "It's the greatest feeling to score. That was my first professional goal of my career, so I had the best feeling.

"I was a big bundle of energy and just went crazy! But it was important for me and Patrick to score."
