Lee: Let's take it to Brentford

29 December 2013

Defender Lee Hodson is confident MK Dons can keep up their recent good form by beating his former club Brentford on Sunday.

As well as winning four out of their last four games, the Dons have kept clean sheets in all of those games and Hodson has been a big part of that.

The 22-year-old spent time on loan at Griffin Park last season and recognises they are in good form, but thinks the Dons are just as good and could take all three points. Speaking to MK Dons Player, he said: “I know the lads at Brentford really well, they’ve been on a good run, but so have we.

"I think it will be a good game between two teams fighting to go up this season, but we’ve got to go there with all the confidence from the last couple of games and take it to them.

“I think the last couple of games have put us in good stead, winning at Wolves away, who are second in the League, shows we can go away to people who are favourites to win the League and get points there.

“So I think it’s another one of those games where we go to Brentford, who are third in the League, and we take it to them and do what we normally do.”

After an early season battle for the first choice right back slot with Jon Otsemobor, Hodson has made the position his own making 18 appearances so far this season.

And manager Karl Robinson has given the defender more freedom to attack in recent games and this is a change in style the Irishman is relishing.

Hodson added: “You just want to play and obviously there’s competition throughout the whole team, and it’s good to have competition to keep you on your toes.

“I think we still have competition, there’s George Baldock who also plays right back as well so it’s keeping me on my toes and keeping me trying to play my best week in, week out, trying to keep my spot.

“I’m really enjoying playing more higher up, I feel like I’m getting more involved in games and I think it’s helping me as a player to improve playing that way and I’m really enjoying playing further up the pitch and being more involved in the attacking side of it.”
