Karl revved up for Robins clash

7 March 2014

MK Dons boss Karl Robinson has spoken of his excitement ahead of Saturday’s fixture against former club Swindon Town.

"I’m looking forward to going there but I’m more excited to see my team play because they’ve taken on board what myself and Gary have said."

"But when it comes to 3pm, I don’t really care who is, I want to win the game. I have all the respect in the world for Swindon, the fans and the town after the time I spent there as a young player.

He added: "It’s always good to go back to Swindon. I’ve got some amazing memories and met some great people, including my old digs lady who I’m meeting before the game.

"We’ve got to be ready because, if we’re not, we’ll be found wanting as these are a good side. A win would send a message out." 

"I’ve stressed to the players that this will be one of the biggest games they put an MK Dons shirt on for," he told MK Dons Player.

A win for the Dons would see them leapfrog the Robins into at least eighth spot and potentially close the gap on the play-off places to three points.

Robinson takes his team back to where it all began for the 33-year-old as a player and, in typical style, he’s not shying away from the challenge the ‘massive’ game brings.
