MK Dons boss Paul Ince has recruited former England and Manchester United team-mate Andrew Cole in a bid to help coach his misfiring strikers.

Ince saw his side draw a blank in their League One opener with Hartlepool last weekend before being soundly thrashed 4-1 by Swindon in the Carling Cup in midweek and hopes that Cole`s prowess can rub off on his forwards.

"Introducing Andy Cole here just shows how we want to move forward," said Ince. "We want a good strikers coach, it's something a lot of teams do now and Coley has volunteered his services."

The Dons boss added: "It's great because when you see someone like Andy Cole working with the likes of Jermaine Easter and Jemal Johnson his advice can only enhance their confidence.

"It's early doors yet and Coley lives in Manchester so we'll give it a couple of weeks and see how it goes."
