Baldock: Dons buoyant ahead of QPR

3 March 2016

George Baldock insists the Dons remain confident despite recent results and they’ll be looking to take that positivity into Saturday’s clash with Queens Park Rangers.

Baldock and co take on QPR at stadiummk this weekend on the back of a draw and a defeat to Huddersfield Town and Blackburn Rovers respectively – games in which the Dons led at half-time.

“We’ve got one point from two games despite leading at half-time in both of them, which is disappointing,” Baldock told DOTRED. “The lads are still confident, though.

“The performances have picked up and that has made us quietly confident, even though the results haven’t gone our way. Football is all about confidence and if we can maintain ours going into the QPR game that will be important.

“The gaffer has told us to stick by the philosophy that we all believe in and eventually the luck will turn. What better time for it to turn than against QPR.”

The men from MK1 go into Saturday’s match three points above the bottom three in the Sky Bet Championship table and with just over nine weeks to go until the end of the season, Baldock is hoping they can stay above the line.

He said: “There are still 12 games left and a lot of points to play for. We’ve still got to play Charlton and Rotherham and there will be plenty of twists and turns, I’m sure.

“We’ve got a points tally in the back of our minds which we believe will be enough – we just need to make sure we’re above the line at the end of the season.”

Read the full interview with Baldock in Saturday's edition of REDDOT which will be available from sellers around stadiummk and the Box Office, priced at £3.

The right-back talks about his beneficial loan spell at Oxford United and how pleased he is to be back at MK1. He also discusses stepping out of his brother's shadow and the support he's received from the stands.
