Charlie Brown says learning from Will Grigg and Cameron Jerome this season will make him a better striker in the future.

Since signing from Chelsea in January, Brown's appearances have mostly come from the bench, with experienced strikers Jerome or Grigg usually leading the way. But Brown has managed three goals for the club, most recently the equaliser against Fleetwood on Saturday as Dons drew 1-1 at the Highbury Stadium.

Seen as a prospect for next season and beyond by manager Russell Martin, Brown is currently the only striker with a contract at Stadium MK beyond the end of this season with Jerome, Kieran Agard and Joe Mason out of contract and Will Grigg's loan from Sunderland set to end.

But while he has the strikers alongside him, Brown said he desperate to learn as much as he can from the likes of Grigg and Jerome.

"I'm learning from all of them," said Brown. "When Cammy was playing, I was watching him thinking he's an absolute beast, and it's the same with Griggy now. They've been around and played for teams at a really good level. For me coming in now, watching them and playing with them will only be good for me."

On playing alongside Grigg recently, Brown added: "He's brilliant on and off the pitch, I get on really well with him. We've got a good connection and when I've played with him, I've really enjoyed it."
