Milton Keynes moved a step closer to claiming second place in the league with a comfortable win over Old Actonians. The first half saw them control the match with good movement and ball retention. They had to work hard to combat their opponent’s well organised midfield and had to wait half an hour for a breakthrough but their patience paid off as they took a commanding lead into the break.
Old Actonians played a higher midfield line in the second period pressurising MK into rushing their passes, however, they soon adjusted and went on to play some good, controlled football. Heather McDonnell and Leanna Doyle were exceptional as they guided MK to an emphatic win.
