MK Dons Ladies made it three wins out of three this past weekend, after a comfortable victory over Arlesey Town.
John Dyer’s side played host to the Bedfordshrie outfit on Sunday afternoon having not played a League game in two weeks due to the bad weather.
The lack of match fitness seemed to show early on as the Ladies struggled to get into their usual free-flowing style of football, however courtesy of a Heather McDonnell (pictured) strike just before half-time, the home team did go into the interval one-nil ahead.
Manager Dyer made several changes during the break, one of which saw Charley Wright move into midfield to help prevent the visitors from finding a way back into the game.
That switch paid dividends as the Dons grabbed two second-half goals to secure an important win over the League’s strugglers.
Another positive for Dyer’s side was the return of Christie Turner, who featured for the first time in four months after suffering an injury earlier on in the campaign.
Arlesey ‘keeper Becky Scott pulled off a number of key saves late on to hold the Dons to three goals but it wasn’t enough to stop the Dons from continuing their impressive start to 2013.
The Ladies will now prepare for their trip to second-place Ipswich Town next weekend where they will be hoping to keep up their push for a top-five finish.
