After he scored four goals against Swindon Town on Saturday, Will Grigg was eager to see his substitute replacement Charlie Brown get a sight of goal.

Grigg made way for the young striker on 52 minutes after setting a new club record for the most goals in a game as Dons thumped Swindon 5-0 at Stadium MK.

Brown, who has netted twice since signing from Chelsea in January, had a couple of half chances but couldn't add to Dons' scoreline.

Speaking afterwards, Grigg said he knew he would be coming off after he netted his hat-trick goal, which came just 50 seconds into the second half, but was keen to see the 21-year-old find the back of the net.

He said: "The gaffer told me to get a hat-trick and he'd bring me off! I got that one so early I thought I'd stay on and I got the fourth!

"Charlie is a great lad, he works so hard. He has loads of ability and I was desperate for him to score. He's got a really bright future. To watch them play with that sort of freedom, we could have scored even more. A few in the dressing room are disappointed not to score or get an assist."
