Martin Allen is tipping Lee Sinnott to be a managerial success after Farsley Celtic gave MK Dons an FA Cup scare.

The League Two side clinched last night's first-round replay with two second-half goals from Izale McLeod.

But Dons chief Allen, who led Barnet in the Conference, believes Sinnott has what it takes to become a top boss.

Allen said: "Lee is doing a fine job and it's quite clear that he is going to do very well in management.

"He's got his team very well organised and they are a decent side. I would hope now that Farsley Celtic are on the map and I'll be looking out for them.

"It would be no surprise to me to see Lee get them promotion this season."

Sinnott felt the game turned on the penalty decision against Roy Stamer, who was later sent off along with Simeon Bambrook.

He said: "From my view you could see the white line so it was outside the area. Neither player was inside the area.

"But you cannot take away from the players what they have achieved. MK Dons had to work hard for their victory.

"The key moments didn't go our way but we should be extremely proud and we must make sure that we keep going hard in the up-and-coming games.

"But there should be no disappointment because for 180 minutes of football we've pushed them all the way."
