MK Dons attacker Chuks Aneke has called on the team to build on their win over Fleetwood and display greater consistency going forward.
The scorer of the game’s only goal spoke of his delight to get the evening, and now looked for the Dons to build on the result and climb up the League One table after some indifferent results.
He said, “It turned out to be a good evening in the end. In the league, we’ve had some indifferent results so it was very important for us to come home and put down a marker.
“Defensively, we were solid, and I got the goal today. I’m delighted by that as I’ve been working on it in training and its come off. We’ve got 3 points and we can put down a marker. We’re a good team and this is the level we should play at week in, week out, and this is the challenge.”
He also said, “I’ve always said the team here has quality and ability. We’ve been a bit young at times during the season but if we can omit the mistakes and right the wrongs, like we did today with resolute defending and with attackers doing their job, we should be looking upward instead of down.”
The attacker is still on the comeback trail after injury, and scored his 3rd goal of his return to the team after previous goals against Walsall and Hyde. He thanked the physios for their assistance and getting him back to a game-affecting position so soon.
He said, “I think I’ve played 8 or 9 games now, and I feel like I’m starting to come into my own. Its credit to the physios and medical staff as I was out for such a long time.
“They put me through my paces and I’m coming back to this level and I’m affecting games. Its a testament to them.”
After frustration in some recent games, Aneke was delighted to get his goal and provide the match-winning blow.
“I’m delighted with the finish with the left foot – the swinger! Its gone in today and I’m delighted as I’ve had quite a few chances since I came back. I had ones against Walsall and Oldham and I was kinda dwelling on it, so its good to put one in.”
