The Dons opened the scoring through Dean Lewington but an excellent double from Rayo's Johan Mojica put the team that finished eighth in La Liga last season in the driving seat.

Two goals in quick succession from Luke Chadwick and summer signing Jason Banton put Karl Robinson's men into a shock lead just before half-time.

From that point the Dons never looked back and when Darren Potter netted their fourth of the evening the result was all but confirmed.

Rayo, however, did manage a consolation goal in the closing stages with a penalty from Adrian Gonzalez.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
