Dean Lewington is grateful to the fans for their supportive reaction to Saturday’s disappointment.
“They are a credit to themselves,” Lewington told MK Dons PlayerHD. “While it was the outcome that nobody wanted, it was fantastic to see people still there supporting us.
“At other clubs, when their teams go down, there can be a toxic atmosphere and the fans tend to get on top of the players but here, they’ve stayed and supported us.
“Our fans get a bit of stick from the outside but they there aren’t too teams around the country who have the fans that we do, who constantly support the team.”
“That was our last chance to stay in the Championship, so to lose 4-1 is embarrassing to be a part of.
Although appreciate of Saturday’s support from the stands, Lewington refused to gloss over the disappointment of relegation and insists the players will be doing all they can to restore some pride in the final two games.
