Karl Robinson has called for a response from his players following the Capital One Cup defeat to Southampton.
“For as embarrassed as the players feel they have a chance straight away to put it right,” Robinson told MK Dons PlayerHD.
“It was a disappointing scoreline and I don’t think we deserved even a goal. We were way off it and we looked lethargic in an awful lot of our play.
“I thought the fans were sensational. They supported us in their thousands and I told the players afterwards that the only way they can pay them back is by performing well on Saturday.”
He continued: “We play in front of the Sky cameras on Saturday lunchtime and I know we’ll play better than that. The team will be different – there will be a number of players that will come in and they’ll be fresh.
“They players have got to pick themselves up and respond in the right way and I know they will.”
