MK Dons Ladies made it four wins out of five on Sunday afternoon, with a 2-1 victory over Denham.
The Dons, in first League game for over three weeks, made the stronger start against their Buckinghamshire rivals, with both Charly Wright and Emily Mann forcing chances early-on.
Then, on the brink of half-time, a curling corner from Wright fell perfectly for centre-back Jess Cutting (pictured) and she was able to poke home her third goal of the campaign, to give the Dons the lead at the interval.
Matt French’s side started the second half as they did the first and it was no surprise when, mid-way through the second period, the Dons doubled their advantage courtesy of a delightful lob from Emily Ingle, after some good build-up play out on the wing.
Denham, to their credit, refused to give up on the game and they set up nervy finish by pulling a goal back with 20 minutes remaining.
However, the Dons were able to comfortably see out the victory; a victory which sees them climb into third-place in the South East Combination League table, albeit with three games in hand.
Next up for the Dons Ladies is a tough home tie with Luton Town on Wednesday night.
MK Dons Ladies: Farron, Hows, Cutting, Hollingsworth, Butterwick, Ingle (Kirby), Stanton, Barrett (c), Wright, Bingham, Mann (M Brockwell).
