The 20-year-old marked his full debut with a first professional goal as the Bees beat AFC Wimbledon 5-3 in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday night.

Kernaghan said: "I am delighted for Luke.

"It has been a difficult year-and-a-half to two years for him. He has never been quite up to full match speed, from our perspective in the first team, until now.

"We are happy he is up to match fitness. He showed his ability and hopefully we will see more of that."
