Robbo: We showed a different side

21 August 2016

Karl Robinson says desire was a major factor in the Dons’ dramatic success at Rochdale.

The 35-year-old accepted his side weren’t firing on all cylinders in the fixture at the Crown Oil Arena – one that was won courtesy of an injury-time header from Scott Wootton, who was making his MK Dons league debut.

“We were way off our best but the pleasing thing for me was the tackles, the saves and the blocks – it was a gritty performance,” he told MK Dons PlayerHD.

“This a difficult place to come, especially without some key players, and Keith has done a magnificent job - they will feel they should have got more from the game and I couldn’t argue with that.”

“It was nice to score from a set-piece as we don’t normally do that. The delivery was outstanding and Scott put his head in where it hurts to score the goal."

He added of Wootton’s winner: “You don’t score a goal at a better time – I think Scott deserved that for his performance. He showed what a good player he is and it’s about him getting fitter now, as well Bowds and Reevesy.
