Dunk debut for Albion

First published in Sport by

Youth team defender Lewis Dunk has been handed his senior debut as Albion take on MK Dons today.

Dunk partners Tommy Elphick in central defence with Adam El-Abd switching to left back.

The teenager has greatly impressed in Steve Brown's youth team this season and was this week offered a two-year pro deal.

He is son of well known former Sussex non-league player Mark Dunk.

There is no place for Ashley Barnes in attack as Chris Holroyd gets another chance to impress.

Meanwhile youth team midfielder Jake Caskey, yet to even agree a scholarship deal for next season, is among the subs.

MK Dons have a host of injuries, plus three key players out suspended, and can only name five subs.

We will have regular updates from here at stadium:mk via our Liveblog.

Join us there if you can.

MK Dons: Searle; Howell, Lewington, Powell, Davis; Powell, Randall, Rae, Chicksen; Chadwick, Cllins. Subs: Gobern, Fanagan, Williams, Baldock, Milton.

Albion: Brezovan; Hoyte, Elphick, Dunk, El-Abd; Crofts, Arismendi, Hendrie; Bennett, Holroyd, Carole. Subs: Walker, Navarro, Tunnicliffe, Dicker, Painter, Barnes, Caskey.

Dunk's performance was the only bright spot on an otherwise poor afternoon for the Seagulls. The team looked light weight up front and never looked likely to score against an under-strength Dons side. A disppointing afternoon for the 1800 travelling support.

How long before the argus comes with a headline like 'Albion fans slam dunk'. Oh please dont. It will never beat 'Bacon rasher found in worthing library book' though. Here is hoping for a bright future for the young guns.
