Captain Dean Lewington says he his is ‘loving’ life with MK Dons this season.
Lewington, who is closing in on his 700th MK Dons appearance, has been ever-present in the league this term and has been one of the standout performers as the Dons have climbed to the top of the Sky Bet League Two table.
“I’m loving it!” said the Club captain, who was nominated for the Sky Bet League Player of the Month Award last month. “It’s always nice when you win but we’re going about it in the right way this year.
“We are playing some good football - it’s attacking, it’s aggressive and it’s something we recognise from a few years ago which is good. It’s an enjoyable place to be at the moment.”
On the Player of the Month nomination, Lewington said: “It was a good reflection of the team doing well. The wins and the clean sheets were not down to me, it was the team’s doing. It could have been anyone who has nominated last month.”
Lewington maintained his excellent form in last Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Carlisle United, putting in a solid defensive display as well as providing the assist for Kieran Agard’s goal.
“It was a good performance and result,” he said in his interview with iFollow MK Dons following last weekend’s match at Stadium MK.
“The game followed the same pattern as the last two games and it was important for us not to get frustrated and to keep doing the right things.
“For the majority of the game we defended well against a good team away from home - they were second in the league for their away record. We had to defend well and we did that, which was pleasing.
“It was a great first goal from Jordan [Houghton] - sometimes you need a goal like that to break the deadlock. Kagsy [Kieran Agard] has been on fire recently and it was good to see him add to his tally.
“I was surprised with how much space I had down that left-hand side. It opened up for me and I saw Kagsy stood there waiting. It was all about getting the right ball to him because he’s shown this season that he’ll put them away if given the chance.”
Lewington added: “It was a good three points but it’s done now and now we look ahead to the next challenge. We’ve got two tough games coming but we’ll prepare well to collect some more points.
“We’ve got 25 games left so there is still a long way to go. We’re not getting carried away. It might be slightly boring to say, but it is all about the next game - that really is the case.”
