Brandon Thomas-Asante is only looking forward after a week in which he found the net four times at Stadium MK.
“I’m obviously happy to have been given the opportunity to play in both competitions,” Thomas-Asante told MK Dons PlayerHD after the 3-2 win on Saturday. “I was motivated to try and make my mark on and I’m happy I did.
“I’m also pleased we have someone like Richie who was willing to give me a chance after seeing my hat-trick. I hope I did him justice.”
“The fans have been really supportive of me and the feedback they gave me (after my FA Youth Cup hat-trick) motivated me to get another goal for them (on Saturday).
“Scoring is one of the main parts of my game. It’s what I like to do and I always bias towards getting a goal. Fortunately, it came off this time.”
“I just made sure I was in and around the area. I gambled and luckily the ball came back to me, so I just finished it off – I just looked straight up to my parents and family – I was so happy.
Thomas-Asante’s goal in the victory over Spennymoor may not rank up alongside his three excellent finishes in the FA Youth Cup but the 17-year-old still enjoyed the moment – one he was keen to share with his family who were watching in the stands.
