Karl: Capitalise on dominance

23 November 2015

Karl Robinson was delighted with his side’s first-half display against Fulham on Saturday, but felt they should have taken their chances at 1-0 to extend their lead.

Dean Bowditch’s third goal of the season capped off a dominant 30 minutes but the men from MK1 weren’t able to increase their margin and the Cottagers were able to level through Moussa Dembele moments before half-time.

“The first-half performance was sensational against a very good team,” Robinson told MK Dons PlayerHD. “Our togetherness, ball retention and hunger to play the way we want to play was really, really good. 

“I thought in the first-half, when we were so dominant, we should have taken our chances and given ourselves a two or three-goal lead.”

Next up for Robinson's Dons is a trip to Molineux to face Wolverhampton Wanderers - tickets are priced at £28 adults, £12 under-12s and £10 under-12s while travel is available from £15 adults and £14 for other supporters.

“My players did everything they possibly could and I’m going away from here very proud of them. Now we’ll look to build on this performance in forthcoming weeks."

He continued: “Our players threw their bodies on the line. We’ve got a great group of people here that really care. The players and the fans were magnificent and I can’t thank them enough.

“Our fans created a noise inside the stadium and it galvanised us. We then condensed the game a little bit and became a little bit more organised. It was an important moment that.”

“We were on the rocks a little bit midway through the second half and our fans dragged us up again. They held on to us and that allowed us to keep kicking. That was important because it came at a time where we looked a little bit flat and open.

Despite a dominant first 45 minutes, the Dons were put under more pressure from their visitors in the second half but Robinson’s men were able to hold off the advances and come away with a point – their seventh from their last four home games.
