Dean Lewington says he’s relishing his time under Russell Martin and feels the 33-year-old has got MK Dons back playing football the right way.

Martin has been at the helm at Stadium MK for just over a month, a period that Lewington feels has been an enjoyable one.

“The training has been really impressive, some of the best I've ever had,” Lewington told the local media ahead of the clash at the Keepmoat Stadium. “Everyone is buying into what Russ wants and everyone is on board and behind him.

“It has been a big change. We've had schedule changes, days off have changed, the time we train, what we train. It has been a big shift. You've seen gradual improvements – from the Port Vale game when we had just a couple of days with him to the Rotherham game where we've got a whole new way of how we want to play. That takes time – but it's what we work on every day."

Lewington added that while the possession-based style of play comes with its risks, it's the right way to go about things.

"The way he wants to play is the hardest, there are risks and it takes a lot of time but ultimately it's what MK Dons is about. The chairman has been passionate about how we play football, he doesn't want to see 'route one' or channel balls, but it's the right way to go, it will take time but it will pay off.”
