Manager proud despite defeat

22 March 2016

Karl Robinson was gutted his side couldn’t end last week on a positive note, but was pleased with the way his players conducted themselves on the back of a testing few days.

Robinson’s Dons, who were reduced to 10 men in the second half, were beaten 2-1 by Brighton & Hove Albion last Saturday, a defeat they may have avoided had they converted a stoppage-time penalty which came after Antony Kay had reduced the arrears.

“It was a difficult week for everybody but on the pitch we saw a real group togetherness and a dedication that I can’t question,” Robinson told MK Dons PlayerHD.

“I think the way we’ve conducted ourselves this week, on the back of all the negativity, has been impeccable.”

“I also want to say thank you to the fans for the support they gave to the players during the game and at the end.”

“I couldn’t ask for anymore from the players, who wore their shirt with pride for 90 minutes. For me, the players were excellent.

He continued: “I’m left with a weird emotion. We’ve moved into the relegation zone but pushed the second best team in the league to levels they haven’t been pushed for a long time.

“There will be a lot of talking over the next couple of weeks but it’s what goes on, on the pitch that matters. We have to make sure we put up a real fight a week on Saturday.”

There’s now a two week wait for men from MK1’s next match against a Fulham side who sit just one place above the Dons in the table and Robinson says it’s vital his side put up the same fight in that fixture.
