Alexander’s second string side ran out comfortable winners in the opening EFL Trophy fixture.
A welcome return for skipper Dean Lewington, who played a full hour, which should see him make the bench on Saturday, minimum.
The Dons were up to usual Dons things as Chelseas kids knocked the ball around until Devoy robbed the ball on halfway he found Dennis, and he slotted home after powering into the area.
Chelsea equalised on the half hour after the Dons wasted several decent half chances to add to their lead.
The lead was restored just before the hour mark as the fortune Leko found the ball back at his feet after it was blocked from a prod goal bound three yards out, the second time he made no mistake.
A few minutes later, Max Dean, making a first appearance of the season, looked like a man out to prove a point.
On 70 mins Dean put his laces through a ball teed up by Leko for 3-1.
Two minutes later, The MKDSA’s very own, Joel Anker, made his professional debut. We are so proud to call him our player.
It was 4-1 on 79 mins as Dean added his second with a curling ball into the far corner with the keeper well off his line.
They say these early Trophy games are a waste of time but several of our players won’t agree. They’ve got themselves into Alexander’s head and have perhaps given him something to think about, perhaps not for a starting place on Saturday but certainly going forward into September.
On to Crewe we go. See you Saturday.
