Spence: Pleased to be back

1 February 2014

Defender Jordan Spence is looking forward to his second spell at MK Dons after completing a loan move from West Ham earlier this week.

Spence who will remain with the Dons until the end of the season, spent two months at stadiummk between October and the beginning of this month, helping keep six clean sheets in the 12 games he featured in.

And the 23-year-old is now eager to get going once again against the side he, ironically, made his Dons debut against back in October. Speaking to MK Dons Player, Spence said: “It’s good to be back and I’m looking forward to getting going again.

“The Gaffer spoke to me before I left and I got the sense that he wouldn’t be able to keep me here but he did mention to me that come January, if anything did change, he may want to come and get me back. 

“I think it helps that I’m not an entirely fresh face, I think that helps in terms of knowing the system, slotting back in and knowing things down to the set pieces and just how things operate here. 

“It’s very much about coming back in and doing the best I can and hopefully that will feed in and we can get things going.”

In recent weeks manager Karl Robinson has been critical of his defence who haven’t kept a clean sheet since the New Year’s Day draw at home to Colchester Unite and Spence believes the team know what they need to do to turn this around.

He added: “I think that when we had the good spell in December we didn’t think we were going to conceded. If we get the basics right and get the stability there then we give ourselves the best chance to get that clean sheet.

“Before the Wolves game it wasn’t a happy place or as nice a place to be as it was after that run so the boys recognise what they need to do. They’ve been in this situation before with a couple of disappointing results back-to-back so it’s about addressing that and pushing forward. 

“It’s a different place and different players in the building to when I was here the first time and there’s quite a few that have departed so it’s about creating the same things MK Dons are about and hopefully that will bring good results.”
