Tisdale's at the wheel

Boss believes MK Dons are moving in the right direction again...

MK Dons supporters spent the final few months of the season singing about manager Paul Tisdale being at the wheel. The Dons boss believes those wheels are moving in the right direction.

Tisdale led the Dons to a third place finish in Sky Bet League Two in his first season at the helm, securing the Club an immediate return to the third tier of English football after the disappointment of relegation in 2017/18.

It was also third time lucky for the 46-year-old, who missed out on promotion from League Two in the play-offs in each of the past two seasons while in charge of Exeter City.

“P-H-E-W - that's how it feels,” Tisdale said in his end of season press conference when asked what promotion means to him.

“There were scenes of celebration in the dressing room at the end of the game and I was sat in the corner with my head in my hands, just with complete and utter relief.

“Then does come the excitement at the challenge. The horizons open up and it just brightens the place up.

“Ultimately, it means my time here at MK Dons so far has seen the wheels moving forwards and that is a complete and utter delight.”
