Jackson looking to impress

Academy graduate hopes to make impact this season...

23 October 2018

Oran Jackson has impressed when given the opportunity this season and the Academy graduate puts that down to the positive atmosphere created by manager Paul Tisdale and his MK Dons teammates.

Jackson has three starts to his name this campaign, including an impressing showing in the Carabao Cup tie with AFC Bournemouth back in August.

Still awaiting his first league appearance of the season, the 20-year-old is willing to remain patient for his bow but hopes to continue making an impact whenever given the opportunity in cup competitions.

“It has been a positive season for me personally,” Jackson said in an exclusive with tonight’s edition of Red Dot.

“I’m enjoying my time right now and I think the performances I’ve had have been quite positive. I’ve still got a lot to learn but I feel like I’m doing well.

“There’s a great vibe around the place right now too - the boys have got a lot of momentum and we are all learning. We all get along with each other and there aren’t any divided groups - everyone is one big team.

“I’m really enjoying it under Tis - him, Matt Oakley, Danny Butterfield and Mel Gwinnett all know how to treat their players and have time for everyone.

“It’s massive for me that Tis has provided me with an opportunity to show him what I’ve got. I feel I’ve done well when I’ve played and I’ve got good feedback – I’d love a league start one day.”

“I remind myself that I need to be patient because I’m so young and I know that I’ve got a lot of learning to do. I’m a patient person but I’m doing as much as I can to make sure that when I’m called upon – I’m ready.”
