Pawlett ready to put it all on the line for MK Dons

Midfielder looks ahead to Saturday's clash with Doncaster...

11 April 2018

Peter Pawlett has contributed towards five goals in his last six games and is a man that wants to do everything in his power to help the Dons avoid relegation come the end of the season.

Pawlett provided the assist for Callum Brittain's goal at the DW Stadium last Saturday just seven days after he netted his fourth goal of the season against Blackburn Rovers.

Amongst his first season at Stadium MK, Pawlett spoke about the importance of taking maximum points from the final two home games are the Sky Bet League One season draws to a close.

"At home, we've been in some good form and we've been playing well." The former Aberdeen man told REDDOT.

"We need to keep that positivity in our play and get some results. We need to start the games well and make sure we don't concede early. We'll dominate parts of the play and we'll create chances – we need to take those when they come along. Our opponents will have spells too and we, therefore, need to make sure we defend well."

Pawlett also noted that both Dan Micciche and Keith Millen have breathed confidence into the group.

"The manager [Dan Micciche] and Keith [Millen] have installed belief into us. As a team, we feel more organised and better as a team, and we're going onto the pitch believing we can win the game – that's a good mentality to have. We're all good players and I think we're realising that we shouldn't be where we are.

"We can definitely do better. There have been a few occasions where we should have scored a few more goals than we have. We just need to remain positive and get the job done."

Currently enjoying his best spell in an MK Dons shirt, the 27-year-old also told REDDOT that he's hoping to add to his seasonal tally between now and the end of the season.

"I've enjoyed the last month or so. It's been a frustrating season for me with injuries but I feel good now. I feel as though we've got to the bottom of it all, touch wood. I'm feeling stronger and sharper so long may that continue.

"I want to create and score goals for the team because that's what I enjoy doing and that's what I get judged on. Hopefully, I can continue to chip in between now and the end of the season, and help the team."
