AFC Wimbledon player kicks ball in direction of MK Dons fans in pre-match warmup

The seven-second clip above shows the AFC Wimbledon players going through their usual pre-match routines.

Meanwhile, Pell is seen hitting a ball in the direction of the MK Dons fans located behind the goal at the Cherry Red Record Stadium.

MK Dons supporters group respond with planned “formal complaint”

“Franchise Dons” an official MK Dons fanpage on Instagram, responded to the incident with the following statement: “We plan on making a formal complaint by whatever means necessary and to whoever it may concern regarding the AFC Wimbledon player that booted 10+ balls into the MK Dons away fans prior to kickoff, whilst his teammates peacefully warmed up.”

There is a huge rivalry between the two clubs due to the controversial formation of MK Dons in 2003 and 2004, which saw Wimbledon Football Club relocated to Buckinghamshire and eventually renamed to MK Dons.
