Smith smudges his copybook

What is it with Toon loanees conceding costly penalties? Haris Vuckic on Saturday, and then Alan Smith on Tuesday. The man who was our midfield general for all of about three months in the Championship handed League One leaders Charlton their second spot-kick of the evening, which proved decisive as MK Dons went down at the Valley. Dons manager Karl Robinson mystifyingly opted to play Smith as a striker - without success, needless to say...

Meanwhile, Vuckic enjoyed a much better evening, scoring Cardiff's third and final goal in a win over Peterborough which saw him named as man of the match. Two matches into his one-month loan spell and already he's talking enthusiastically about extending it for the rest of the season.
