Higdon knocks out MK Dons

The Blades, who reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup last season, now find themselves deep into another knockout competition with the prospect of a glamour tie to come in December.
After a non-event of a first half, Stefan Scougall should have put United in front when he headed over an open goal after Marc McNulty’s cross had drifted over Dons goalkeeper David Martin.
The deadlock was finally broken after 67 minutes when Craig Alcock tripped Dele Alli in the penalty area and the Dons’ on-loan Arsenal striker Benik Afobe calmly slotted in from the spot – his sixth goal of the competition.
The Blades drew level with just four minutes left when Higdon headed Jose Baxter’s cross home after a quickly-taken corner.
And they snatched victory in the third minute of stoppage time when Jamie Murphy’s corner found its way through to Higdon, who smashed his shot into the net via a post from an acute angle.
