What we learnt: Dan's Rotherham presser

The key takeaways from Dan Micciche's pre-match press conference...

13 March 2018

Dan Micciche and his MK Dons side begin an important stretch of matches this evening, with their next three Sky Bet League One fixtures taking place at Stadium MK.

The Dons entertain Rotherham United and Bury this week before taking on Blackpool next weekend – a run of games that Micciche will be looking for his side to make the most of, in their pursuit of Sky Bet League One survival.

“It's good to be back home,” Micciche said in his pre-match press conference ahead of tonight’s meeting with the Millers. “We know what's ahead and we know we need to get as many points from these games as we can ahead of the Easter period.

“[Rotherham] are well organised so we'll have to break them down. Forty per cent of their goals have come from set pieces so we have to be aware of their threats. They've got a good mixture of height and they've got good runners.

“We will have to be at our best in order to get anything from the game. We need to get our style of play right and the attitudes right, then if we get the first goal, the confidence will build from there.”

Here’s what else Micciche had to say ahead of tonight’s game...

On Saturday’s postponement...
“It was a huge disappointment, especially after the Bristol Rovers game a week before – when you have a game like that, you want to head out there as quick as possible. We were well prepared for the game and we were really looking forward to it.”

On keeping focus the internal...
“We've got a points target we have to get to so we are only focusing on ourselves. We need to take it one game at a time.”

On facing familiar faces...
“I know Richie [Barker] from his time here and obviously Pottsy [Darren Potter] is there - and we hope he doesn't play because we know what he's capable of.”

On the injuries...
“We've got a few bumps and bruises. Marcus Tavernier is still being judged on a week-to-week basis – he’s not our player, but we know they'll give him back to us when the time is right. Scott Golbourne is progressing well, as are all the injured players. It's just great to have them around the place. The likes of Joe Walsh and Alex Gilbey have really supported us – their professionalism is brilliant.”
