Robbo’s Dons focused on tonight’s tie

19 January 2016

The Dons know what’s at stake in tonight’s Emirates FA Cup tie but are fully focused on the task at hand.

The winners of tonight’s third-round replay between the men from MK1 and Northampton Town at stadiummk will go on to host Premier League outfit Chelsea in the next stage but manager Karl Robinson stresses that his players’ attention is solely on this evening’s clash.

“It’s important we make sure we’re ready and raring to go because the prize at the end of it is phenomenal,” said Robinson. “They players go into the game knowing what the prize is and I’m sure they’ll have the right mentality.

“Our view on this game hasn’t changed since the draw was made. Every game we go into we want to win and it’s important for us to do so.

“There’s going to be an intense atmosphere so we need to make sure we’re ready for it.”

He continued: “We will make changes tomorrow but four of them have been forced, Kyle McFadzean being one of them. There are three others who are struggling and even if we had a league game they wouldn’t be able to start.

“The changes we’ll make tomorrow have been made for the right reasons but the side is still strong.”


“If we can do that then that will give us tremendous confidence, which hopefully we can build off that.”

“We’ve got a massive week,” he added. “If we can win our next two, which is a big ask, then we’d have won three in a week which is a tall order whatever level you are at but it’s important we try and do so.

Tonight’s tie is soon followed by an important Sky Bet Championship clash with Bolton Wanderers and Robinson is looking for his side to win both games and stretch their winning run to three.
