Brittain: Competition for places is healthy

Heading into the upcoming Sky Bet League One campaign there is competition for places in every position in the squad – competition that Callum Brittain says can only benefit MK Dons.

In defence, Paul Tisdale added former Manchester United man Regan Poole, while Brennan Dickenson can also fulfil the wing-back duties.

Joe Walsh and George Williams returned from their respective injuries back in May, while Baily Cargill and Jordan Moore-Taylor are progressing well.

Coupled alongside the experienced duo of Russell Martin and Dean Lewington and academy graduates Callum Brittain and Matthew Sorinola – the Dons defence will certainly pose welcomed question marks for Tisdale.

“I think competition for places can only help you better yourself, to be honest,” Brittain told the local media following the 1-0 win over Welwyn Garden City FC.

“If there is competition it makes you work harder and it makes you want to get into the team – it’s only healthy.

“I don’t mind where I play. I do prefer the wing-back role, I did really enjoy my time in midfield as well. I feel like a variety of positions is good for my game and I’m learning in every position.”
