Ben backs Dons' progress

7 March 2017

Ben Reeves feels MK Dons are heading in the right direction despite Saturday’s defeat at in-form Millwall.

Reeves & Co have progressed up the Sky Bet League One table in recent months, collecting points from 12 out of a possible 17 fixtures - seven of which have been wins.

His goal late in the first half looked to have secured his side at least a point from the fixture at The Den but Lee Gregory’s penalty in stoppage-time saw the men from MK1 leave the capital empty-handed.

“Of course we’re frustrated,” the midfielder told MK Dons PlayerHD. “It’s hard to take when you don’t get the result you deserve.

“I felt it was a good performance from us, in a scrappy game. Nobody really had too many clear-cut chances but I felt we got ourselves into better positions –we maybe even deserved more than a point.

“I felt they got lucky with a few decisions –the penalty was questionable. That tends to happen (at The Den) because the crowd play a good part.”

Despite the defeat, it was another positive performance from the Dons, who really appear to have turned a corner since the turn of the year – Reeves agrees.

“We’re getting better as a team. I don’t think there’s ever really been a problem with us going forward and teams can’t counter-attack on us anymore like they used to.

“I’m sure we’ll keep improving.”

The Dons will look to get back to winning ways this weekend when they entertain Rochdale at Stadium MK.

Reeves and his team-mates have won six of their last eight matches in Milton Keynes and the 25-year-old fully expects the team to give everything they’ve got to secure the three points.

“Every game from now until the end of the season, we’ve got to push and try to get every point that’s up for grabs,” Reeves said.

“We’re looking forward to the next game where three points would be important.”
