Harvey’s call to be clinical

28 March 2017

Harvey Barnes wants MK Dons to remain on the front-foot despite last Saturday’s frustrating goalless draw at Port Vale.

Barnes was one of a number of Dons who went close to scoring at Vale Park but despite testing the Valiants keeper on a number of occasions, the men from MK1 weren’t able to find a breakthrough and were forced to settle for a point.

“It is frustrating,” the Leicester City loanee told MK Dons PlayerHD.





“It’s been really good for my development,” Barnes said of his time at Stadium MK so far. “I’ve gained lots of experience playing 90 minutes in week in, week out.”

Although unable to find the net, Barnes impressed during the Sky Bet League One clash in Staffordshire – one of a number of stand-out displays the 19-year-old has enjoyed since making the temporary switch from Premier League champions Leicester in January.

“In the next game we might get half as many chances and three or four might go in. It’s always positive to create a lot of chances – it’s just unfortunate none of them went in on this occasion.”

“In the first half we did well and we were unlucky not to grab a goal – maybe if one of them sneaks in it becomes a completely different game and it would have opened things up for us to maybe nick a few more.



“We’ll be looking to get the three points at home which will hopefully kick-start us again.”

A victory could see them move nine points clear while it may also move them up one place to 14th, should Northampton Town fail to beat play-off chasing Rochdale at Spotland.

The young winger will be back at Stadium MK this weekend for the visit of Gillingham, a match which provides the Dons with a chance to push themselves further away from the bottom four in Sky Bet League One. Tickets for this Saturday's clash with Gillingham at Stadium MK are priced from £22 adults, £17 over-65s/under-21s and £7 under-18s, while under-12s go FREE with a Young Dons membership.
