STANLEY suffered their worst defeat since their return to the League as they were outclassed by league leaders MK Dons.
The Reds could offer little resistance to the on-fire Dons who had the game sewn up within 32 minutes.
By that stage they were 3-0 up after Keith Andrews had opened the scoring on eight minutes, ex-Red Alan Navarro made it two with an easy tap in and Scotland international Colin Cameron fired home from the edge of the area.
Stanley could do little to counteract Paul Ince's side despite manager John Coleman using all three substitutes just after half-time and switching from 3-5-2 to 4-4-2.
Lloyd Dyer added two goals in the second half as the Reds were left reeling.
"We were outplayed and outclassed," said Coleman, who is now under pressure with one point out of the 12.
"The first goal went in and our confidence was fragile after Wednesday's defeat by Rochdale and it showed.
"We just couldn't get going after the first goal and all credit to Mk Dons, they never took their foot off the gas and put us under pressure.
"We can feel sorry for ourselves and sulk or try and get a positive result against Chesterfield next week."
"We were too hot to handle." said Dons assistant boss Ray Mathias.
"They couldn't live with us and on one occasion there were 35 passes from one end of the pitch to another and back again.
"It was very pleasing."
