    Milton Keynes Dons boss Russell Martin has praised striker Joe Mason for his efforts in his side's 2-1 loss to Lincoln City.

    Mason scored the Dons' only goal of the game, but had a couple of truly threatening chances that could have given his side at least a point.

    Early on in the match he had a chance to give the Dons the lead after narrowly missing from four yards out while later on he had an impressive close-range shot saved by Lincoln goalkeeper Alex Palmer.

    With the Dons still searching for a true, number one striker, Martin was impressed with the effort that Mason showed in this game and believes he would have added even more goals to his tally if he was truly 100%.

    He commented: "I thought he was excellent, I think his performance was really good today and that's the first 90 minutes he's had, so he'll only get better and stronger."

    "He linked the play really well, got himself into some great positions, which he does, he's a really clever player."

    He concluded: "So, really pleased with Joe, he took his goal fantastically and another two or three games down the line he probably nicks two or three goals today when he's got that match sharpness and readiness that will come with games."
