Dean keen for final-day success

1 May 2014

Dean Lewington hopes to cap off a memorable week by ending the season with a victory against Leyton Orient on Saturday.

“It was nice to see a few faces, Chors, Platty, Mitch and Alby. They have been part of this journey and were all a big part of that experience. It was nice to see them again and look back at some of the old clips. It brings back some happy memories.”

He added: “It was really nice (to win the award). Celebrating the ten years, it provided a nice opportunity to look back and celebrate what’s been before.

Several of Lewington’s former team-mates were in attendance, Clive Platt, Aaron Wilbraham and Ben Chorley just to name a few, and the Dons skipper says he enjoyed the opportunity to look back on some cheerful memories.

“In the last two games we might not have played so well but we’ve certainly showed a lot of heart and commitment and sometimes that’s been the problem. It’s been pleasing to see a lot of character shown and that the boys have been willing to dig in.”

Speaking to MK Dons Player, the 29-year-old said: “It would be nice to finish the season on a high. Obviously Leyton Orient are a team in the play-offs and are a very good team but it will be good to finish with a win.

Lewington, though, remains fully focused on this Saturday’s clash with Orient and insists he and the team are eager to end their 2013/14 campaign by collecting three points in front of their home supporters.

The left-back was named MK Dons’ Player of the Decade on Tuesday evening, just three days after making his 500th appearance for the Football Club away at Rotherham United.
