MK Dons assistant manager Richie Barker praises the ability of striker Benik Afobe after he netted twice in his side's 2-0 win over Bradford City in the League Cup third round.

MK Dons assistant boss Richie Barker believes that striker Benik Afobe has "got everything" after he took his tally for the season to nine in his side's 2-0 win over Bradford City in the League Cup third round.

The on-loan Arsenal striker scored in the fifth minute before adding a second late on, and Barker has praised the forward, as well as strike partner Will Grigg, for their performances this season.

The 39-year-old is quoted by BBC Sport as saying: "Benik has scored a lot of one-on-ones because of his pace, but the way that he took his first goal was excellent. I didn't realise how good it was until I watched it the second time around.

"He's got everything. And to be fair to him and Will Grigg - who have rotated - every time one of them starts they end up scoring and it gives us a headache in terms of team selection."

In the previous round against Manchester United, Grigg and Afobe both scored twice as the League One outfit recorded an emphatic 4-0 triumph against the Premier League giants.
