Revell finds positives in draw

25 February 2016

Alex Revell insists the Dons must take the positives from their 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town, in particular their dominant first-half performance.

Courtesy of Revell’s first goal for the Club, the men from MK1 looked all set to pick up an important three points in Tuesday’s clash at stadiummk only for Nahki Wells to strike with four minutes remaining to earn a share of the spoils.

“It is a point in the direction,” Revell told MK Dons PlayerHD. “It’s a point when everyone else has lost and it’s a point away from the (relegation) zone.

“The first half was probably one of the best I’ve seen all season from teams I’ve played with and against. We were excellent and if it hadn’t been for some good defending from them, I think it could have been more (than 1-0).

“We came out second half and for the first five minutes we started well but I’m not too sure what happened after the sending off. We stopped doing what we were doing in the first half.

“We’re all winners and we want to win games. To win games, we can’t concede goals like we did at the end but likewise, we probably should have scored more goals. We’re in it together.”

“Every point matters. Now it’s about picking ourselves up, looking at how well we did in that first half and taking that into Saturday. It’s the old cliché but we’ve got to treat every game like a Cup final from now on.”

He continued: “It’s a bitter pill to swallow because the lads worked so hard. It is disappointing but we have to take positives. It is all about taking the positives when we are where we are at the moment.

“It settles you down a bit because it’s always at the back of your mind as a striker. No matter how well you are playing, you want to get that goal. Now I’ve scored it, it’s a positive for me to take into the next game.”

“It was nice to get the goal. It was a great ball from Jonny Williams and it was there for me,” Revell added.

With that goal under his belt, the striker is keen to push on and hopefully add more to his tally before the end of the season.

Tuesday’s match with the Terriers saw Revell get off the mark for the Dons in only his second start since joining on a free transfer from Cardiff City, heading home from a perfectly-waited Jonny Williams cross.
