Lewington dissapointed with Yeovil Town draw

Defender looks back at Yeovil draw but states performances are getting better...

27 September 2018

Dean Lewington feels MK Dons are still finding their feet in Sky Bet League Two but more positive performances are beginning to develop - performances such as Tuesday’s display at Yeovil Town.

Lewington & Co. went ahead minutes before the end of the first-half after Kieran Agard slotted past Nathan Baxter in the Yeovil goal.

However after a number of chances went astray, Olufela Olomola found a way past Nicholls to ensure the points were shared at Huish Par.

Although the Dons picked up a single point rather than three - Lewington stated the performance on the night was pleasing and feels the squad are improving game-by-game.

“It was hugely frustrating to conceded so late,” Lewington told mkdons.com following the final whistle. “It was a game we dominated, we played really well and created numerous chances. We again conceded in the last five minutes which was very disappointing.

He added, “We played well in the first half, we looked dangerous and deserved our goal - equally we deserved a few more. In the second half, we created a lot of chances and it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say we should’ve been three or four goals up.

“We need to take these chances away from home as we will come under pressure when playing away. We need to be a bit more clinical and finish teams off because we can easily lose the points.”

Lewington also feels that the Dons defence has become more stable under Paul Tisdale while also adding that the manager is still in the early stages of his time at Stadium MK.

“Unfortunately, at the moment it’s small steps. Defensively we’ve become solid, we want to improve but we are creating a lot of chances.

“We’re starting to see in our performances that we are starting to find our style. We’re finding out what players can do what and how they fit into the system - as we move forward hopefully we will keep on improving.

“We’ve got to remember the manager is still in his infant stages here, he’s got a lot of new players and brings a lot of new ideas. It’s still really early on and he’s trying to turn around a team that has been relegated twice in the last three years.”

He added, “It’s not going to be, click your fingers and it’ll all be okay. We are having some problems but we are still picking up points and we should be winning games - that’s a positive. As the season progresses we will turn these draws into wins and get motoring.”
