Patrick Bamford said he could add millions to his price tag when he masters the art of heading.

The striker, who now has eight goals to his name this season, scored his first of two against Stevenage with his head after working on improving that part of his game in training during the week.

He said: “That’s all I’ve been doing after training this week because the gaffer said it would add a few extra million to my price tag and will chip in an extra five goals a season!

“If I can get that under my belt then it’ll help a lot. Obviously I need a bit more work on it though as I missed quite a few!

“I think I’m getting better each week. Last week, I think I could say I was match fit, because I didn’t get much of a pre-season in.

“The gaffer is helping me work on things in and after training, whether it is finishing, laying off, always something to help me improve.”

But he wasn’t just scoring goals on Saturday - he also laid one on a plate for Dele Alli to score Dons’ third of the afternoon to put the result beyond any doubt.

“It was a great afternoon and I think the team played really well again.

“It was important that we got a three goal cushion early, because we didn’t want a similar situation to the one we had against Notts County.

“We really clicked today. The movement and rotation was excellent, and we tore them apart at times.”

“I think we’ve got potential in this team. When you look at Peterborough who are up there, their style isn’t exactly attractive.

“But I don’t think there is another team that play like us. We are in with a shout.”
