Dean Lewington believes he and his MK Dons teammates must try and remain professional through the enforced break, in order to ensure they are ready to go once the campaign resumes.
The EFL has been suspended since March 13th with restrictions now in place indefinitely, as the country continues to battle the Coronavirus pandemic.
With over 780 career appearances to his name, Lewington has seen pretty much everything in the game, with the exception of this. The captain, though, is remaining upbeat and focused on making sure he is fit and firing come the re-start.
“We have to be ready for when we get the call to come back,” he said in a recent interview with MK Citizen.
“It’s a strange situation. At first, we were told it would be a few weeks, so we could just keep training but then it obviously became more serious and the break has become longer.
“It’s an opportunity to clear our heads a bit and, from a personal perspective, it’s nice to have the kids around as well. At the moment, we all just have to stay positive.”
