Dave: Shrews success a good platform

27 February 2017

David Martin believes Tuesday’s clash with Bradford City is set up nicely after the recent success over Shrewsbury Town.

Martin & Co returned to winning ways in Sky Bet League One courtesy of a 2-1 victory over the Shrews at Stadium MK and the 31-year-old wants to use the triumph as a platform to build form heading into the upcoming fixture with the Bantams.

“To get back to winning ways and to get the three points was important,” Martin told MK Dons PlayerHD.

“Shrewsbury have been on a good run so we knew it was always going to be a difficult game. We didn’t get the clean sheet, which we’re a little annoyed about, but we got the three points and that gives you a good platform to build from."

“We looked at a few things in the week and we knew we had to be more aggressive. We worked on it with the gaffer and it’s always good when you’re game plan comes off.”

“We’ve been longing for that performance,” the goalkeeper said. “We’ve been doing alright but not really doing any damage so it was pleasing that every time we went forward it looked like we were going to score.

Martin was merely a spectator in the first half of Saturday’s victory over Shrewsbury, watching on as a ruthless Dons side built up an early two-goal lead – one which they wouldn’t surrender.
