After losing to Hatcham last week, SE Dons faced an even stronger test this past weekend. The Dons travelled away to play LAS FC who were six for six with 18 points at the summit of the league table.
The Dons who lost for the first time this season last weekend were determined to bounce back and so they did. A 2-0 victory with goals from Zak Ansah and Ryan Palmer was enough on the day to end LAS FC’s unbeaten run.
Zak Ansah now has eight league goals in ten appearances as he moves into the top three scorers in the league. The 2-0 score-line also means the Dons now have the second best goal difference in the league.
SE Dons currently have ten points from five games as they make a title challenge of their own and can make a real statement this Wednesday night. After beating LAS on Sunday they now host the same opposition in a midweek fixture.
To take six points off a team who are looking strong would set a statement of intent from the Dons and their immensely talented squad. The fixtures do not get much easier for them either with an upcoming tie with Portland.
Despite Portland having played more games than anyone else in the league, they sit second in a hugely competitive league. SE Dons have had some tasty encounters with Portland in recent years and this will undoubtably follow that trend in creating drama and excitement.
