Rhys praises academy duo

10 September 2019

Striker Rhys Healey has praised the performances of both Sam Nombe and David Kasumu after the pair made their full EFL debuts against AFC Wimbledon.

Nombe, who was nominated Sky Sports Man of the Match last Saturday, opened the scoring after latching onto the end of Conor McGrandles’ through ball.

Kasumu meanwhile, anchored the midfield with a level of maturity way above his 20-years of age.

Healey, who scored the winner at Stadium MK, commended both Nombe and Kasumu for the performance they put in.

“On Saturday we saw two young boys come in and they both done a really good job – they didn’t look out of place,” Healey told iFollow MK Dons.

“They’ve both looked very good in cup games, that provides them an opportunity for players that haven’t been playing – they both took it.

“They’ve been training really hard, just like everyone else has. Tis said they deserved their chance they took it and proved to everyone why they got it.”

Nombe has now scored four goals in four games this season having netted once against Southend United in the Carabao Cup before scoring a brace against Stevenage in the Leasing.com Trophy.

“I always say a confident striker is a dangerous striker. Sam is full of confidence at the money – that goal will be him the world of good. Going into the next few games, if he gets chances, you’ll see he’s full of confidence."
