Robbo set for 300th game

18 December 2015

Karl Robinson will take charge of his 300th Dons match on Saturday, when his side travel to Nottingham Forest.

Robinson, who was appointed to the helm at stadiummk in May 2010, is the third-longest serving manager in the Football League and, at the age of 35, is the fifth-youngest boss in the country.

The Liverpudlian won his first game in control, a 2-1 victory over Walsall, and has since totalled 135 victories, which gives him an impressive win percentage of 45.2%.

“Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine the chairman would give the youngest manager in the Football League a chance,” he said. “Nobody expected him to be there 300 games late either.”

“Without the chairman this wouldn’t be a possibility and it’s vital that the fans know I couldn’t do it without them either.

“To be standing in the technical area for the 300th game will be quite surreal.”

Dean Lewington, who has been Robinson’s captain ever since he became boss ahead of the 2010/11 campaign, told MK Dons PlayerHD: “To get to 300 games is an amazing achievement, especially in modern football with the turnover of managers.

“It’s been good playing for him - it’s gone quickly! His philosophy on football mirrors mine and our relationship has always been quite natural. He can come to me when he needs something and vice versa.”

An exclusive interview with Robinson will be available to view on MK Dons PlayerHD later this afternoon.
