Robbo: An enthralling encounter

8 February 2015

Karl Robinson says both sides and their respective supporters played their part in an exciting afternoon at stadiummk.

The top two going into the eagerly-anticipated fixture, MK Dons and Bristol City went toe-to-toe and ultimately shared the spoils in front of a crowd of 15,642.

“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.”
