Karl Robinson was floored by a Sam Baldock double against his old club as Bristol City fought back to draw 2-2 with MK Dons.
City were trailing 2-0 when Baldock capitalised on a fortunate ricochet to fire home on 57 minutes, and then forced the ball over the line 14 minutes from time after a corner had been headed into his path.
Dons centre-back Shaun Williams had earlier fired his side ahead after 17 minutes, chesting the ball past City debutant Adam El-Abd and beating Elliott Parish for his 10th goal of the season.
Ben Reeves was then allowed to burst between defenders onto a 36th-minute Samir Carruthers through-ball and coolly chipped over the advancing Parish.
Dons boss Robinson admitted: "It was like a basketball match - you attack then we'll attack.
"If you had given me a draw after the first five minutes when they had three good chances I would have taken it.
"But now I feel we should have won. Ironically, we defended a lot better in the second half than we did in the first, yet conceded twice.
"Bristol City are a good side and I don't believe they will stay in a relegation battle. I'm proud of how we have played over two games against a club with their resources and support this season.
"I would always have Sam Baldock in my team because he represents quality. Unfortunately, we have to keep selling our best strikers, but that is a fact of life and we get on with it."
