Danny assists Dons in victory

13 August 2014

Danny Green provided his third assist of the season in Tuesday night’s 3-1 victory over AFC Wimbledon.

The winger found team-mate Kyle McFadzean with an 18th minute corner and the defender was able to turn the ball home and give the Dons an early lead which they wouldn’t surrender.

It was the third goal in just two games Green has created but the 26-year-old, who moved to stadiummk on a permanent basis earlier this summer, insists his only focus is on helping the team win and not personal accolades.

He told MK Dons Player: “It was very pleasing but the main thing about the night was to get through to the next round.

“I thought I put a good ball in and it was a great finish from Kyle. I thought I under hit the corner a little bit but sometimes that can work in your favour. They’re quite a big team so by putting it in a bit lower it allowed Kyle to just get a little flick around the corner.

“We do a lot of set plays in training and I try to work on my crossing as much as I can. The gaffer has said to me my game is to get wide, put crosses in and try to get as many assists as possible and that suits me down to the ground.

“It’s nice getting assists but more importantly it's about winning, that’s all we want. The main thing about tonight was just getting through to the next round, that’s what we did and we’re delighted.”

With AFC Wimbledon doing their best to frustrate the Dons, Robinson’s men were forced to dig deep at times in order to see-out the victory, and Green says it was pleasing to see that side of team.

He added: “The way we battled was probably the most pleasing thing from the game. I didn’t think our football was that great but you have to give them credit for that, they made it hard for us.

“First half I thought we played well whereas in the second half it was a bit more of a battle. I tried to get stuck in as much as I could because when it’s a hard game like that you’ve got to get stuck in sometimes - and expect to be tackled as well.”
