Pawlett calls for cup response

Midfielder hopes the men from MK1 can bounce back tonight at Forest Green Rovers...

8 August 2017

Peter Pawlett views tonight’s Carabao Cup tie against Forest Green Rovers as an opportunity for MK Dons to bounce back from Saturday’s defeat at Stadium MK.

Pawlett & Co travel to Gloucestershire this evening looking to progress through to the Second Round of the Carabao Cup but also record their first success of the 2017/18 campaign.

“In this league, you get game after game and fortunately we’ve got a game on Tuesday night,” the attacking midfielder told iFollow after last weekend’s defeat to Wigan Athletic.

“It gives us a chance to put it right straight away – we’re looking forward to it and hopefully we can get a good result.”

Saturday’s clash with the Latics was Pawlett’s competitive debut for the Dons and although disappointed not to mark the occasion with a victory, the former Aberdeen man was pleased to make his Stadium MK bow.

“It was a disappointing result, of course, but I was pleased to get on the pitch and get some minutes – to get out there and feel the ball and get touches – I really enjoyed it.

“Wigan are a top side, having just been relegated from the Championship. Towards the end of the game, we were all over them. We just need be more clinical in the final third.”

Tickets for tonight's Carabao Cup tie with Forest Green Rovers are priced at just £12 adults, £10 seniors, £7 under-22s and £5 under-16s while under-11s go FREE*.

Tickets can now only be bought at The New Lawn ahead of kick-off, cash only.
