Robbie: Result was key

20 March 2017

Robbie Neilson says the result was paramount in Saturday’s clash with Coventry City at Stadium MK.

Neilson’s men were deserved 1-0 winners over the Sky Blues thanks to Stuart O’Keefe’s superb second-half strike.

“At this stage of the season, we need three points on the board and that’s the most important thing,” he told MK Dons PlayerHD.





“I felt a bit of nervousness from everyone because of where we are but today’s win is a huge lift for us, especially with results elsewhere going well for us too. Confidence has been a wee bit fragile because we haven’t got the results we wanted so today was a huge one for us.”

Here's what else we learnt from Robbie Neilson's post-match interview...


“We work on set-plays but that wasn’t one we worked on at all! The corner got shanked in and then the boy slices it but Stuart ended it with a moment of real quality. We’ll be working on it next week too!”
On scoring from a set-piece...

“It was an important time to score. The first goal is important at any time in this league. The first goal proves pivotal in a lot of games and then we stayed firm to make sure we saw the game out.
