MK Dons confirmed their involvement in the League 1 play-offs with their victory over Sheffield United at the weekend and although two more regular League games remain the team are glancing forward to the test that awaits them in the semi-finals.
The Dons will play Huddersfield Town in the play-offs, and Karl Robinson's men will play the second leg at stadiummk provided they match or better the Terriers results in their two remaining matches.
The sides are currently locked together in the table on 77 points, with the Dons having a seven goal advantage in terms of goal difference.
Looking ahead to the play-off semi-final matches with Huddersfield, skipper Dean Lewington said that if the league games were anything to go by it would be another tight match.
He said: "They're a great team and they're on the same points as us, which tells you there's not much between us. We know they will be two very difficult games, we drew both our league games 1-1, so it will be a tight match. We are looking forward to it and hopefully we can get through this time."
The Dons have previous experience in the play-offs, and Lewington admitted they were desperate to go one step further than last season.
He said: "We've approached it every single way. This year will be quite similar to last year, just focusing on games as they come. We won't really do anything different. They will be two very difficult games, and we will prepare for them as we always do.
"Play-off games are such unique matches - every single one is different. They have their own stories, their own ups and downs. We will try and be confident, and as well prepared as we can be, and hopefully that will see be enough to see us over the line."
The Dons have two League games remaining against Rochdale and Walsall, and Lewington believes that will allow some extra preparation time ahead of their semi-final first leg on Saturday 12th May.
"I think after the Scunthorpe game we knew more or less we were there. I think it is nice for the Gaffer as well to have it confirmed, so that we can start planning and tinkering with the team.
"We can rest a few players that may need resting. We can sharpen up a few players as well. It gives us that little bit of leeway and that extra little bit of preparation."
Lewington also spoke about two of the strongest areas of the team - the good form of the defence and the spread of goals throughout the side.
He said: "The spread of goals through the team is fantastic. If you look at the other sides in the top six, they all have players who are in the twenties in terms of goals. We spread it around a bit and the way we play, the emphasis is not on one main striker, the whole team contributes.
"That's the way we play really, it's very much a team game. We try and get different players in different positions. The fact that 19 different players have scored this season reflects that."
The Dons have kept three successive clean sheets, and have conceded just once in four games, something Skipper is pleased about as the back four has often had to change this season.
"It's been a little bit muddled really - we've had to change it quite a bit at the back. With Gary coming back, he's great in the air and we have missed that.
"Hopefully we can keep our current back four together, that'll help us get some consistency and we will get to know each other's games, and get a few more clean sheets in the run-up to the play-offs."
