MK Dons Ladies were defeated 3-2 by Chesham United on Wednesday, condemning the Ladies to their fifth straight game without a win.
The Dons took the lead against Chesham inside five minutes through Emily Mann before the vistors equalised seven eight minutes before half-time after the United striker latched onto a long through-ball before finishing past the Dons’ keeper.
Things got worse for the Dons when Carissa Kaczorowski landed awkwardly and was taken to hospital after a lengthy delay.
However, seven minutes later the impressive Mann put the home side ahead once again before Chesham scored twice in quick succession to leave the Dons 3-2 down at half-time.
With their minds understandably elsewhere after the injury to Kaczorowski, the Ladies fell even further behind and an unfortunate day was rounded off when Ireland Under-19 international Brodie Betts was carried off injured on her first full return to the team.
After the game, manager John Dyer was left counting the cost of what could have and should have been a triumphant return to winnings ways.
He said: “This was both sides of the football coin for the Ladies.
“We now have two more players on the ever increasing absentee list but some players were superb, in particular Heather McDonnell, Kaye Henton and Emily Mann.”
