Karl: Unacceptable performance

8 September 2012

Karl Robinson was once again left frustrated after his side fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Walsall.

Dean Holden’s 17th minute strike was enough to seal the points for the Saddlers in a game that the Dons dominated and created multiple chances.

Dean Bowditch and Alan Smith came the closest to scoring for the visitors, the former having an effort cleared off the line early in the first half.

The loss means the Dons have now failed to win their last three away League games, something that disappoints manager Robinson.

Speaking after the game, he said: “We’ve not started off great away from home and we know that and we have to turn that around.

“We created chances today but if you keep making chances and not finish them, you’re not going to win football matches, it’s as simple as that.

“Credit to Walsall, I thought their endeavour, their togetherness and last ditch defending was remarkable and you’ve got to show them tremendous credit for that.”

“But it’s disappointing and unacceptable. Our fans have now come away to watch us twice and we’ve not got anything out of the two games.

“We’ve not had a good run of performances as well, not finishing opportunities and the players have now put pressure on themselves for the next two games to prepare, perform and win.”

The Dons now have six days without a game, allowing the Dons management and players the chance to reflect on recent results and regroup ahead of the fixtures against Yeovil and Notts County at stadiummk.

Robinson added: “The boys will go away and it’s their duty of care to the badge and the Chairman to put a performance in and that’s me included, I have a duty of care to the Football Club to up my game as well.”
