Dons earn LMA Award

29 August 2014

The League Managers Association have chosen MK Dons for the LG Performance of the Week Award following their excellent 4-0 home win against Manchester United.

Karl Robinson’s side were selected by a five-man Performance of the Week panel, comprising of LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry. The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,000 professional matches in professional football.

Dons boss Robinson will receive a new specially commissioned trophy made by world renowned silversmiths and LMA Partner, Thomas Lyte of London, in a presentation to commemorate the award.

The men from MK1 won the third award of the season with a fine home victory against last season’s semi-finalists Manchester United. Will Grigg and Benik Afobe both scored a brace in their side’s emphatic display in front of a crowd of 26,969 - the biggest in their 10-year history.

Speaking after the match, Robinson was incredibly proud of his team. He said: “It was a remarkable evening for all involved and for me personally, as well as my staff - it was a night that we’ll never forget.

“Yes, they made changes but there were still a number of world class players out there and I thought the players were magnificent. It’s disappointing for me that people are talking about their mistakes but we had to force them into those errors. I’d rather give my players the credit than criticise others.”
