Baker came on just after half-time and scored twice to keep Dons within a point of Preston North End.

He said that all Dons can do now is to keep winning to maintain that pressure and he is enjoying being part of a squad challenging for automatic promotion.

“I only knew their score because I was on the bench,” said Baker.

“I’ll probably get fined for saying this but I had a cheeky little look at half-time to see what the score was!

“We just need to keep winning and knocking on the door and pray they slip up.”

Aaron Wilbraham will feature in Bristol City’s plans for life in the Championship after earning a contract for next season. Signed on a free transfer from Premier League Crystal Palace last summer, the veteran forward negotiated a clause whereby he would be offered a further 12 months, providing he played a certain number of games. A first-team regular this season, the 35-year-old has played often enough to trigger that clause and, having helped the Robins lift a League One championship and Johnstone’s Paint Trophy double, he is determined
 to be a part of City’s assault on the second tier next season.

Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough has vowed to punish any member of his team he suspects is playing for a draw during Saturday’s game at Leyton Orient.

The visitors enter the match knowing they will be assured of a top-six finish by avoiding defeat against Fabio Liverani’s side.

But Clough said: “There are two games to go and everybody knows what we need. Let’s muck in and get it.

“You can’t play for a point in football. You have to be positive and go out there to win. You can’t play for draws in football. It’s a dangerous thing to do and, more often that not, you end up coming unstuck.

“We will be doing everything we can to go out and get a result. Irrespective of what goes on elsewhere.”
