Robbie Neilson poured praise on Dons teenager Sam Nombe after another impressive display on Saturday.

Nombe came on after 55 minutes against Shrewsbury, and played a role almost immediately in helping tee up Peter Pawlett to score the opener in the 1-1 draw.

Having impressed his manager regularly with his substitute appearances this season, Neilson said the youngster has a big future in the game.

He said: "It's part of the MK Dons way - to give young MK lads a chance. Sam has been great in training and U23s, and when he gets his chance in the first team,he takes it.

"He works hard, was unlucky not to get a goal but he has a real belief in himself. He has a big future in the game."
