Three points are all that matters to MK Dons manager Paul Tisdale at this stage of the season.
Tisdale’s men beat Crawley Town 1-0 on Saturday to make it four straight Sky Bet League Two victories and to stay within two points of the automatic promotion places.
His side weren’t at their fluent best at Stadium MK but boss Tisdale was more then happy to take the result, regardless of style.
“I think we're all of the same opinion [about the game] but it's three points - it doesn't matter how they come,” Tisdale said in his post-match press conference.
“[Crawley] didn't deserve to lose today – not at all. They played really well, they played some good football, and instantly we knew we were in for a tough game.
“Up until we took the lead, I think they were the better team. The goal changed thing, of course.
"I'm really pleased with that goal because we don't score many of those. It was scrappy, an opportunist.”
He continued: “Once we got ahead, we did really well to restrict them to a small number of chances.
"It was a long, drawn out, tough, hard-working game for us but we're over the line and on to the next.”
The result maintains MK Dons’ promotion push, as they remain on the heels of third-placed Mansfield Town. Tis knows the pressure is going to rise as the season draws to a close.
“Every game, the pressure will mount, the stakes get higher and we have to be ready.”
