19 December 2020

MK Dons Under-18s secured their place in Round Three of the FA Youth Cup courtesy of a 3-0 win over Eastbourne Borough at Stadium MK.

The tie took place on Saturday afternoon, following a late postponement on Wednesday due to a waterlogged pitch.

Ryan Holmes, who scored a brace in the first-round win over Hertford Town, put MK Dons ahead on 19 minutes, finishing a cross from Charlie Smith.

Round One hat-trick hero Lewis Johnson then doubled the lead from the penalty spot with a quarter of an hour left to play, before Holmes put the icing on the cake late on, tapping in after a free-kick had been saved.

The Young Dons will face Leeds United in the Third Round. Details of the tie will be confirmed in due course.

MK Dons Under-18s: Carter, Smith, Black, Bailey, Riley, Davies, Johnson, Crane, Holmes, Deall, Ilunga.

Subs: Sandford, Rowley, Mann, Blennerhassett, Anderson.

Goals: Holmes (19, 80), Johnson (76 pen)
