Stuart hails Dons supporters

Goalkeeper hopes to continue rewarding fans...

20 February 2019

Stuart Moore has praised the impact of the MK Dons supporters in the last two matches and hopes to continue rewarding them this term.

Travelling fans racked up over 700 miles last week to support Paul Tisdale’s men at Newport County and Carlisle United and were re-compensated with back-to-back Sky Bet League Two victories.

Moore, who made his first two league starts for the Club at those away matches, was delighted that the team could send the supporters home happy on both occasions and hopes that they can continue to provide success for the MK Dons faithful.

“They had two long away trips last week and the support at both was amazing,” the goalkeeper told Red Dot - MK Dons’ matchday programme. “We are pleased we could give them what they deserved in terms of points.

“They’ve been massive for us, all season. For me, fans are a key component at any Club. The more they get behind us and the more noise they make, the better it is for us on the pitch. It could be any minute in the game where we need a lift, and when you hear them singing it does just that – it gives you a boost.

“It’s very important to stay connected with them. We are one Club - that’s the fans, the players and the staff. Everyone comes together because we all want the same thing. If we do well, it’s not just the players or the staff that celebrate, it’s the fans - everyone deserves their fair share of success.”

Not only as Moore has felt support from the stands but also close to home from fellow goalkeeper Lee Nicholls and First-Team Coach Mel Gwinnett. The 24-year-old believes the backing from his Goalkeeper Union has provided him with the platform to succeed on the pitch.

“The support from Mel and Lee has been brilliant,” Moore said. “Everyone wants to help each other.

“I’m so appreciative of Lee and everything he does. He’s been exactly the same with me in training throughout the whole season - he’s been so supportive.

“We both want to play, but we are both there to work for each other. We want to push each other to be the best goalkeepers we can be. That forces us to up our games and helps the team out.”
