    Jevani Brown scored in each half as Exeter ran out 2-0 winners at struggling MK Dons.

    Brown broke the deadlock from the spot nine minutes before the break, sending Jamie Cumming the wrong way after former Dons frontman Sam Nombe was brought down by Zak Jules.

    The striker doubled his tally midway through the second half as he latched onto Archie Collins' deflected pass to fire home his 12th League One goal of the season.

    The hosts had enjoyed the better of the opening stages and should have gone in front when Mo Eisa was played clean through but slotted wide with the goal at his mercy.

    Daniel Harvie and Bradley Johnson were off target with efforts from distance while the latter saw a header drop inches wide in first-half stoppage time.

    Eisa spurned two further presentable chances in the second period as a profligate Dons side failed to test Jokull Andresson, who marked the first appearance of his third Exeter loan spell with a clean sheet.

    With this win for The Grecians they are now in 10th place with 38 points only five points off the play off positions. There are only four points between Exeter and 15th place Charlton Athletic who are on 34 points. 

    Exeter's next game is at home to Charlton Athletic next Saturday at 3.00pm 

    TORQUAY UNITED in the National League won 1-0 at home to Maidstone United with the only goal from Aaron Jarvis on 79 minutes.

    The Gulls are now 22nd place with 25 points alongside Gateshead with Oldham Athletic three points ahead with 28. Scunthorpe United and Maidstone are holding up the league with 21 and 23 points respectively.

    Torquay's next game is away at third placed Woking on Tuesday evening at 7.45pm.
