Lewington happy to play anywhere for Micciche

Skipper reflects on Saturday's draw...

27 March 2018

MK Dons completed their trio of home fixtures with a 0-0 draw against Blackpool on Saturday afternoon - taking their tally to seven points from a possible nine during that period.

Despite not picking up all three points Lewington commented on how the recent upturn in form has boosted the dressing room, “Confidence is such a huge thing,” Lewington said to the media following Saturday’s stalemate.

“Confidence affects people more than you know, after those two wins, looking at the table it changes everything – it has been massive for the boys.

“We’ve targeted the home games to get maximum points so on that front we’re disappointed to come away with only one. But, it’s another point towards our tally and we can take some positives from it too.”

Under Dan Micciche, Lewington has more often than not played on the left side of a three-man defence alongside Scott Wootton and Elliott Ward. Due to Robbie Muirhead’s involvement with Scotland’s Under-21s - Lewington started Saturday’s clash as a left-wing back. While he didn’t feel it’s his natural position, the 33-year-old noted he’d do anything for the Dons.

“I was asked by the gaffer to play there [left-wing back] and to be honest, I’ll do anything if he asked me to do it. It’s not a position that naturally suits me, but I gave it my best.

“When Robbie came on, it gave us a bit more balance and helped in the attacking sense. We looked solid, kept a clean sheet and these are the little building blocks we need to keep our run going and to get us out of it.”

Lewington concluded, “I think Blackpool's first shot was late in the game and they hit the bar. They are a good team, they pass it well and they’ve got some good players. On the balance, we dominated and had a few chances – on another day, they go in.”
