The West Yorkshire outfit returned to winning ways in the Championship with a 2-1 triumph at Stadium mk.
The Whites took the lead just past the half-hour mark when Chris Wood found the target from close range.
Carl Baker pulled down Charlie Taylor inside The Dons’ penalty box, and striker Wood made no mistake from 12 yards.
Taylor made it 2-0 to Leeds just before the half-time interval when he found the target with his left foot.
Simon Church halved the deficit for the hosts in the 74th minute, but The Dons ended the game with 10 men following the sending-off of Samir Carruthers.
Silvestri started the match against MK Dons, despite his mistake against Ipswich Town at Elland Road on Tuesday evening.
The Italian played well against The Dons, making as many as seven saves over the course of the 90 minutes.
Following the match, Leeds fans took to Twitter to have their say on the performance of Silvestri.
Below are some of the best comments:
If Gordon Banks is in the reserves, we can have a meaningful Silvestri debate. He isn't. #lufc— EastStandÜpper (@EastStandUpper) September 20, 2015
How did Cook not score! Great goal by Taylor! And the run for the Pen! Silvestri made some great saves. #Lufc— James (@jimmy_L_UFC) September 19, 2015

I say 'we' won the game like the whole team are worthy of praise but it was mostly Taylor and Silvestri. (And the ref). #lufc— The Scratching Shed (@TSSLUFC) September 19, 2015
