THREE TO WATCH: MK DONS

18 November 2016

Take a look at the potential threats in the ranks of Saturday's visitors to the Mem, MK Dons.

Ben Reeves 

The twenty-four-year-old midfielder has five goals to his name in all competitions so far this campaign and has been a steady feature for MK Dons, already making seventeen appearances so far this season.

A product of the Southampton academy, it was spells on loan at both Dagenham & Redbridge and Southend where the midfielder was able to gain his first taste of first-team football.

Reeves joined MK Dons ahead of the 2013/14 season and has since gone on to make almost ninety appearances for the club, with an impressive return of twenty goals from midfield.

Dean Bowditch 

An experienced Football League striker, the thirty-year-old forward is the Don's joint leading goalscorer so far this campaign, with seven goals in all competitions.

After starting out as a trainee at Ipswich, various loan moves allowed the forward to gain exposure to League football, with temporary moves to Wycombe, Brighton, Northampton, and Brentford.

It was during a two-season spell at Yeovil where the forward managed to kick-start his career, scoring twenty-five goals during his stay at Huish Park, a goal return that caught the attention of MK Dons.

The striker signed for the Dons in June 2011 and has since made over one-hundred-and-fifty appearances, scoring just shy of forty goals for the club.

Bowditch's last goal game in MK Dons 1-1 draw with Walsall last Saturday.

Ryan Colclough 

Twenty-one-year-old is on loan with MK Dons from Championship outfit, Wigan Athletic and has impressed in ten appearances he made for the Dons so far this season.

After starting his career with Crewe Alexandra, Colclough progressed through the academy to sign a two-year scholarship ahead of the 2011-12 season.

Netting twelve times in his sixty appearances for Crewe, the winger made the switch to Wigan in January 2016 and made eleven appearances in the second half of the 2015/16 season.

In the summer the winger joined MK Dons on a season-long loan and bagged a hat-trick in their victory over Fleetwood Town towards the end of September.
