Goalkeeper Lee Nicholls hopes Saturday’s battling draw with Coventry City can prove to be a turning point in MK Dons’ season.

Nicholls & Co played out a goalless draw with the Sky Blues at Stadium MK, with Nicholls playing a pivotal role in securing the point by saving a second-half spot-kick.

The result put an end to the Dons’ run of five straight defeats and Nicholls now expects the team to kick on and build upon the point.

“Hopefully this is a turning point and we can kick on,” the goalkeeper told the media after Saturday’s game.

“We've not had a good run of late but we've come away with a point, so we have to use this to drive us on and improve our results. Hopefully we can build on this now.”

Reflecting on the penalty save, Nicholls said: “It was a big moment – they always are. If they score, they can kick on and dominate, but luckily we kicked on instead of them.

“Credit has to go to Mel – he works hard on his penalties. He tells me what to do and I have to pull it off.”
