Highly rated youngster Dele Alli scored again as MK Dons secured an impressive away win the keep their automatic promotion hopes alive.
Alli scored the third in a 3-0 away victory over Fleetwood Town, to keep the pressure on Preston North End in the battle for second spot.
The central midfielder also provided an assist, but his spectacular goal, his 15th of the season in League One, drew high praise from the Dons official twitter feed:
This boy is something else. Alli pounces on a loose ball and drills an unstoppable half-volley into the top left corner. 0-3 #FLEvMKD— MK Dons FC (@MKDonsFC) April 14, 2015
Alli had been out of the side injured over the last month, and his absence certainly slowed up the club's form.
The midfielder signed on loan with Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur earlier this year, but was sent back to MK Dons immediately in order to continue his development.
It was an impressive 24 hours for the England under-19 international, who was named on the Football League shortlist for Young Player of the Year earlier in the day, along with Middlesbrough loanee Patrick Bamford and Norwich's Nathan Redmond.
Great win tonight! Very solid performance from the whole team. Also happy to have got my 15th goal of the season #COYD— dele alli (@dele_alli36) April 14, 2015
