Jake Hesketh sparkled as MK Dons climbed into the automatic promotion places in League Two on Saturday, easing aside Yeovil Town by two goals to nil.

The midfielder’s arrival in January has spearheaded his loan club’s push to return to League One; their latest win saw them climb back into the third and final automatic promotion position in the fourth tier.

There was plenty for the home fans to enjoy about Hesketh’s performance at Stadium:MK not least this cheeky nutmeg on Yeovil’s Tom James on a day when he was unfortunate not to register the goal or assist his contribution deserved.


As it was, Ryan Harley's early strike got the home side up and running after 13 minutes before Chuks Aneke added a second for the hosts late on to inflict a fourth-straight league defeat on the Glovers, who are just two points clear of the drop zone.
