MK Dons defender Zak Jules played against Wycombe Wanderers yesterday and not only did he score the winning goal, he also made his 100th career appearance.
“It’s a good milestone and hopefully there are many more to come in a Dons shirt,” Jules told iFollow MK Dons after the game.
Jules made his 100th career appearance one to remember, with an elegant, winning finish on the end of a free kick taken from Josh McEachran, after a foul was given just 15 yards outside the Wycombe box.
The number 4 had this to say about his game winner: “I was hoping that he (Josh McEachran) would overhit it. Luckily Hiram Boateng got a block in to free me up - after that I just tried my best to watch the ball on to my foot and guide it into the net, which it came off well in the end.
“It’s a win and it was a good opportunity to get some minutes in our legs and show the manager what we’re capable of and hopefully give him a headache for the next league game.”
A 2-1 victory over Wycombe not only grants MK Dons three points in their Papa John’s Trophy group but also ensures them qualification for the next round of the competition. When questioned about the aspirations the team have for this trophy, Zak stated: “At the end of the day not a lot of people can say they’ve played at Wembley. Any competition which is held there, will be a great occasion. So that is definitely the target.
“Obviously we will take the competition game by game, but we hope us the fans and the club get to experience that this season.”
