Karl Robinson says both sides and their respective supporters played their part in an exciting afternoon at stadiummk.
“A point was fair. I thought it was two good teams contesting the game fairly,” he told MK Dons Player.
“Everyone came out of it with a lot of credit, fans as well. It was a really good afternoon of football and we are a point closer to the target.
“The boys deserve an awful amount of credit and I’m immensely proud of them.”
He added: “Steve’s side played wonderfully well second half, but I thought we stopped them playing in the first half and were really on the front foot. We looked a rounded team against a strong side in Bristol City.”
The Dons were denied a penalty in the final minutes when Samir Carruthers’ shot goal-bound effort appeared to strike the arm of Luke Ayling.
He said: “I think we should have had a penalty when Luke Ayling, who played well, clearly handled it late on. The referee’s conduct and manner afterwards was perfect but it doesn’t stop me being disappointed with the decision.”
