Reaction: Drogheda United

13 July 2016

Darren Potter, Daniel Powell and Charlie Burns give their reaction to MK Dons' pre-season victory over Drogheda United...

DARREN POTTER
On his fitness after a second pre-season game…
“I feel good. It was only half an hour for us tonight so we weren’t put through as much as the other lads but it’s roles-reversed tomorrow. It was a decent run out.


On difficulty of only playing half an hour…
“It’s one of the most difficult things about it, trying to get into the stride of the game. You’re coming on against players who have been on for an hour. I suppose they’re just starting to get a little bit tired at the same time, so it probably evens itself out. I thought the lads who came on after the hour mark conducted themselves really well.”

On competitive nature of the match…
“Drogheda got back into it, obviously got their equaliser and came into the game and did quite well. They even gave us a few scares when we came on as well so it was a tight affair.”

DANIEL POWELL
On the win over Drogehda…
“It was good but, to be fair, they were good too. They gave us a good game and maybe we were a little fortunate to get the two goals in the second half.”


On clinical Dons...
“We took our chances. We had a few good chances and I should have had a hat-trick but the linesman said I was just offside.”

On grabbing two goals…
“It’s always nice to get goals but it’s about fitness now at this time. The teams are getting better and better and hopefully tomorrow’s game will be another good test.”

CHARLIE BURNS

On getting back to football…
“It’s good. It’s good to get back to the small habits that you forget when you haven’t played for a while. It’s good to be back to a routine.”



“It’s all about getting your distances again and getting your angles. These pre-season games will really help to re-find those positions. There is always stuff to work on. Even against lesser opponents, you have to really work on your concentration and expect the unexpected. The games will always benefit for you.”
On being a goalkeeper during pre-season…
