Lewie: Carry positivity into Charlton clash

7 March 2016

Dean Lewington hopes the Dons can take Saturday’s positive result into Tuesday’s trip to Charlton Athletic.

The men from MK1 visit the Valley on Tuesday evening looking to build on the important three points they earned against Queens Park Rangers at stadiummk this past weekend.

“It’s a positive result,” Lewington told MK Dons PlayerHD. “Charlton got one as well so they’ll be going into it with a positive mindset too but it’s important we keep ticking things along.”

“All the boys were fantastic and their work rate was fantastic.”

“We also managed to keep the ball in their half – the second goal came from Reevesy chasing the ball down and keeping it in play on the touchline.

“We’ve spoken lately about just staying in games because when it opens up, we feel we’ve got the players to take advantage.

“We’ve been in that situation a couple of times so it was a case of us putting in to practice some of the things we’d worked on in training.

Saturday’s 2-0 triumph over QPR came on the back of two games where the Dons failed to take maximum points despite leading and captain Lewington, therefore, was pleased to see the side had learnt their lesson.

“It’s always nice to score but you hope it means something and it happens in a game that you go on to win.

Lewington put the Dons in the driving seat against the R’s with a stunning left-footed finish – his first goal of the season – and while the 31-year-old insists the result was the main thing, he was pleased to get on the scoresheet.

“With the way the results went around us, everyone can see how important it is for us – it helps us maintain that gap.”

He continued: “This game was just a case of trying to get three points at home because it was a big game for us and we’ve been on a bit of a strange run recently where we’ve been playing okay but not really been picking up points. Tickets for Tuesday's clash with Charlton at the Valley are priced from £22 adults, £16 seniors/under-21s, £10 under-18s and £5 under-11s.
