Crawley Town (loan)[edit]

Powell joined Crawley Town on loan on 3 August 2009,[3] making only two appearances for the club before returning to Milton Keynes Dons.

Forest Green (loan)[edit]

After that he was loaned to another Conference Premier side, Forest Green Rovers.[4] He made his Forest Green debut on 17 October 2009 in an away defeat against Histon.[5] His first goal for the club was the third in a 3–1 win over Salisbury City on Boxing Day 2009.[6]

Powell became a regular with Forest Green and the club decided to extend his loan deal until the end of the season in January 2010.[7]


Darlington (loan)[edit]

Having not made an appearance for the Dons at the beginning of the 2010–11 season, Powell joined Darlington on a one-month loan on 1 October 2010,[8] and made his full home debut in his new teams game the next day against Wrexham.[9]

Return to Milton Keynes Dons[edit]

Powell returned to MK Dons in November 2010 and began to break into the first team, his position was cemented after the sale of Aaron Wilbraham[10] and Jermaine Easter left the club with just two senior strikers. Powell went on to score 10 goals in 25 league appearances in the 2010/2011 season for the dons.

On 5 March 2013, Powell signed a two-year extension to his current MK Dons deal, keeping him at the club until June 2015.[11]

Powell netted 10 times in 2014/15.[12] On 18 July 2015, Powell signed another two-year extension tying him to the club through June 2017.[13]

Style of play[edit]

Powell has been described as being a forward thinking player who often runs at full-backs and is a strong asset down the flanks. His unpredictable nature is often an asset and at times a flaw in his character but remains an important player when on the field.[12]
