AFC Wimbledon Under-18s will be aiming to make it four successive victories on Saturday after an impressive win last time out.

The young Dons host Luton Town on Saturday with confidence high after a 7-2 victory versus Leyton Orient last time out.

Though Orient took the lead early on, it didn't take long for Wimbledon to strike back through Dylan Adjei-Hersey, who rifled home from seven yards after a fine through ball from Josh Hallard. It was 2-1 to Wimbledon in the 18th minute when Zach Robinson fired home at the near post. The young Dons were rampant now and a third arrived when Hallard again delivered for Robinson, who headed home emphatically. A lovely move involving Isaac Ogundere and Troy Chiabi earned a fourth with Adjei-Hersey giving it the finish it deserved. In a superb first-half from the young Dons, a towering header from Luke Jenkins and a chip from Troy Chiabi made it six before the break.

Though just one more goal arrived in the second-half, Wimbledon continued to control possession and added a seventh through Chaibi after good work from David Fisher, who was returning after injury. A late Orient goal was of consolation value only and the young Dons will be aiming to continue the prolific early season form against the Hatters on Saturday.
