Karl: Must keep momentum going

13 November 2012

Karl Robinson hopes his team can keep up their recent good form when they do battle with Cambridge City later tonight.

this evening.mkstadiumHis side have won three out of their last four games all without conceding a goal and they will no doubt want to continue along the same path when the non-league side arrive at

The Dons are fighting for a place in the second round of the FA Cup with Budweiser against AFC Wimbledon, after they won their replay last night, but Robinson is aware that his team will first of all have to navigate their way past a strong Lilywhites side.

Speaking to MK Dons Player he said: “We would like to keep the current momentum going with a win. The players have been remarkable and they continue to do the right things and obviously picking up nine points from the last three League games has had a big impact on our position in the table.

“But our focus is now solely on a very difficult tie with Cambridge City and the boys have been training really hard to prepare themselves for the test. They’re motivated by the fact they want to make history and play in big games and the FA Cup gives us that opportunity.

“Gary Roberts (Cambridge City’s manager) has got the respect of his players and that was obvious from the way they performed against us last time. They will be willing to put their bodies on the line and they will do whatever it takes to cause one of the biggest Cup upsets in local history.

“But if we do lose tomorrow night it will be very disappointing and it'll hurt - that’s not being disrespectful to them as we are expected win this. 100 percent it’s on our minds to avoid an upset. We don’t want to be the team on the wrong end of a scalp that people will talk about in ten years time.

“If we apply ourselves tomorrow then I’m sure we’ll be alright. I’m looking forward to the game against a very good Cambridge side and we’re very respectful of that.”
