Dunstable Town will be glad that they don’t have to face MK Irish again this season. The Bletchley based club won 4 - 0 at Creasey Park in the opening game of the season and on Saturday won 3 -1. It ended Caretaker Manager, Anthony Christophi’s, 100%-win record from the two games he had been in the hot-seat and saw the Club drop one place to 16th in the table.
It did however see a debut for Grenadian International, Kwazim Theodore, who came on as a second half substitute with 10 minutes remaining. Theodore, with 29 international caps, showed some nice touches on the ball but couldn’t affect the outcome of the game.
Dunstable fell behind in the 23rd minute and soon after Goalkeeper, Dan Gould needed lengthy treatment on the pitch following a heavy challenge.
Spirits were lifted when L’Kharmi Gale finished off Dunstable’s best move so far with a perfectly executed drive. However, parity only lasted four minutes as MK Irish grabbed the lead on 41 minutes.
Gale didn’t reappear for the second half. Injury saw his place taken by Simon Richards.
Dunstable were grateful for the wise head of Bobby Armstrong who for the second game in succession made a goal line clearance.
Just past the hour mark, Dunstable captain, Chris Stapleton nearly bagged an equalizer while at the other end, Gould made a miraculous one handed save to keep the scoreline down.
This wasn’t vintage Dunstable as passes went astray and heavy touches saw possession lost.
There was another good away following making up a third of the attendance.
Dan Trif replaced Enoch Mensah but an overall bad day at the office was complete when MK Irish scored their third goal with 10 minutes to go.
Dunstable have a free Saturday on October 2nd as the scheduled fixture v Holmer Green has been postponed.
The next fixture is away at Harefield Utd on Saturday, October 9th while Aylesbury Vale Dynamos visit Creasey Park on Tuesday 12th October, kick-off 7.45 pm.
