Karl: We will get better

14 August 2016

Karl Robinson’s MK Dons side have taken four points from their first two Sky Bet League One fixtures but the Liverpudlian insists they will ‘get better’.

The men from MK1 followed up their 1-0 success over Shrewsbury Town on the opening day with a come-from-behind 2-2 draw with promotion-hopefuls Millwall, despite being without three key players in Ben Reeves, Samir Carruthers and Chuks Aneke.
 
“I feel it’s a really good point,” Robinson told MK Dons PlayerHD. “To come away from this game with a point, against a team who are favourites to win the league, is positive and we will get better.
 
“We will get better and to me that’s the most important thing. I still believe we’ll make two more signings and there are three players who we’ll get back fit in Ben Reeves, Samir Carruthers and Chuks Aneke - we’ve got five top players to add to this team so we have got a long way to go.
 
“We are a top team at this level and hopefully we can be a successful team. Everyone’s working hard behind the scenes to ensure that happens.”





He added: “Kieran’s a great kid and we know we’ve got a top player. I think it is clever business by the Football Club and its business that has paid off.”

“It was two very good League One teams and every player gave their all. I don’t think there was a bad player on the pitch.”

“Overall I’d say a draw was a fair result. I thought we were excellent in the first half and really imposed ourselves, even though they scored the two goals against the run of play. In the second half, they were much better than us and imposed their style onto us.
 
However, inspired by club-record signing Kieran Agard, the Dons came back to earn a draw – a fair result according to the manager.
 
Things weren’t looking good for Robinson’s side 27 minutes into Saturday’s clash, after visitors Millwall ran out into a two-goal lead at Stadium MK.
