Jordan Moore-Taylor insists MK Dons know what they need to do to ensure results like Saturday’s 4-3 defeat to Bury don’t happen again.
The defender made his first start since returning from injury in last weekend’s game at The Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane and his goal helped Paul Tisdale’s men build a 3-1 lead over the Shakers.
However, a late fight-back from Bury meant the Dons headed home without a point to their name and a disappointed centre-back addressed the result after the final whistle.
“We know what we have to do,” Moore-Taylor said. “At 3-1 up, we should be killing the game off. We know that and we're not stupid - we know what we should have done to bring the points home.
“We've had a very good defensive record throughout the year. Yes, we've conceded goals recently, but we know what it takes to keep the ball out of our net, and we're working hard to make that happen again.
“We have to move on and make sure it doesn't happen again.”
MK Dons dropped to third in the Sky Bet League Two courtesy of the defeat but they do hold two games in hand on now-second placed Bury. Moore-Taylor is remaining positive.
“At the end of the day, we have 20 games to go and it's in our own hands. We know we're more than capable of challenging at the top of the table and that's our aim.”
