That's it! The full-time whistle goes and it's finished here 1-1 at Glanford Park. Stay tuned for reaction from both managers.
Not long left here and I'd be surprised now if it didn't finish one apiece. Although the visitors do have a corner. One minute left.
Baldock goes close again for the visitors. Murphy makes a fine save down to his right to deny the substitute.
Unbelievable! How did The Dons not score? Baldock goes past Murphy, but with only Mirfin to beat his shot manages to hit the Scunthorpe player. What a chance for the visitors.
From the resulting corner The Iron are unlucky not to be ahead when Pearce's close-range effort is knocked over by Sterling, who had been on the floor! Superb defending.
Hayes beats the offside trap and strikes the ball at Gueret's goal. However, the keeper is up to the task and guides the ball wide of his near post.
Dons were fortunate to win a corner there, but from the resulting set-piece Mirfin gives the visitors another corner by getting to the ball before Llera.
Baldock tries a left-footed shot from the angle, but thankfully for the home side, it rolls wide of Murphy's goal to safety.
Crosby is down for The Iron at the moment. It looks like a bit of cramp from the assistant manager there. It looks like Adkins will replace him.
Wright works a bit of space in Scunthorpe's box, but after securing himself a sight of goal lashes his left-footed effort well wide of the target.
That should have been a second for The Dons, but Llera is unable to keep his free header at the back post on target. Real chance there for the visitors.
Hooper has the ball in the net for Scunthorpe, but his effort has been disallowed. Hooper stabs home at the back post from Hayes' blocked shot and replays show it was the correct decision.
Nearly two third of the first leg have been played and we're no nearer to knowing which of these sides are going to Wembley.
Iron break in numbers, but Hayes' cross is unable to find any of his three team-mates in the middle.
Wilbraham get the better of Morris. He pulls the trigger, but the left-back manages to get a touch on the ball giving the visitors a corner.
The three minutes of injury time passes without incident meaning the teams go in at the break all-square at one apiece.
A superb left-wing cross from Puncheon there, but no one is on the end of the ball from Di Matteo's side to apply the finishing touch.
Lewington has stayed down following a challenge with Byrne. It looks an honest challenge, although he was caught slightly by the follow through.
Llera is booked for bringing down Hooper. It was a great piece of skill to skip past the Spanish stopper.
Some good defending from Sparrow denies Puncheon, who was seconds away from pulling the trigger and lashing a shot at Murphy's goal.
Jordan Codd writes: "I believe Scunthorpe are going to win 4-1! We have so much power. I couldn't make the game tonight as I have a broken ankle."
A decent chance for Scunthorpe from a direct free-kick, but McCann's effort strikes the wall. Chance gone.
Hooper goes down in the penalty area under pressure from Stirling, but the referee waves away Scunthorpe's appeals for a penalty.
Llera is lucky to escape a booking for hauling down Hayes. It was a good bit of skill to knock the ball past the on-rushing defender.
McCann's drilled free-kick strikes the wall. It was well hit, but was unable to get past the visitors' first line of defence.
Adam Alexander has mailed in predicting a 3-0 win for Scunthorpe, although that has already been blown out of the water thanks to Dons' leveller.
The Iron fail to clear a corner. Stirling manages to guide the ball forward allowing Wilbraham to nod the ball past Murphy at his near post. Although the home side will be unhappy with the award in the first place. A bit of luck there for the visitors.
Free-scoring Gary Hooper is looking lively up front for the home side despite entering the game on the back of a seven-game scoreless run.
Don't forget if you have any predictions on this evening's game feel free to mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Will Scunthorpe ram home their advantage or will the visitors strike back?
It's all Scunthorpe at the moment. Dons are having to withstand some heavy pressure from the home side.
A superb block from Lewington denies Sparrow an attempt on Gueret's goal. So close to a second from the home side, but good defending from the visitors.
Hayes' long-range shot from out wide left is only parried by Gueret. The ball falls kindly for Woolford who manages to react quickly and divert the ball into the empty net with a first-time finish.
The chances have dried up somewhat over the past few minutes as both teams look to avoid conceding an early goal.
The Dons are looking good in possession. Chadwick is unlucky not to have won a corner there for the visitors.
Half a chance for the home side. Hooper latches onto a long-ball, but with Dons' keeper stranded the striker's lob is under-hit allowing Gueret to take possession of the ball.
The Iron have managed to steady the ship somewhat, although the visitors are looking very dangerous early on.
Wilbraham escapes a booking for lashing the ball into the net from long-range, despite being flagged for offside. It was a neat finish, but was never going to count.
Dons are looking lively early on. They have a chance to play a decent ball in from the right-hand touchline, but Wright's cross is wasteful.
The teams are in the tunnel. We're just a few minutes from kick-off now. If you have any talking points or predictions ahead of the big match feel free to drop me a mail on email@example.com.
The away teams triumphed during the regular season with Dons avenging their 2-0 defeat on home soil to The Iron with a 1-0 win at Glanford Park in April.
The Dons will be the favourites to secure a place in the play-off final after finishing 11 points clear of Adkins' men, but Scunthorpe are not to be underestimated on home soil. Scunthorpe are 6/4 to win the match, the draw is 9/4 and a win for MK Dons is 6/4 with www.skybet.com
