Robinson ruthless in assessment

14 April 2014

Karl Robinson has apologised to the Dons supporters for his side’s display in Saturday’s defeat at the hands of Crawley Town.

Robinson branded the performance as “embarrassing” as the men from MK1 fell to a 2-0 reverse atstadiummk.

“It was poor, very poor,” he told MK Dons Player. “I haven’t seen many worse performances than that from us. We didn’t string many passes together and we didn’t create many chances - their keeper didn’t even break sweat.

“Crawley worked their socks off and for John, his staff and players, it was a very good three points. Credit to them, but I have to look at my own team.

“There’s no excuses, we weren’t good enough. We were second to every second ball, we looked laboured and we looked lethargic.”

He added: “Every time you put on an MK Dons shirt you’ve got to perform to the best of your ability and they didn’t. 

“We’ve lost the last six at home for a reason and it’s embarrassing. I apologise to the fans. I said to the players ‘go and clap them’ because they’re the ones who stayed in the stadium and they deserved that at the very least.

“There’s a lot of changes that need to happen at this football club – we need to bring in more quality and we need to be more competitive.”
