Fraser: I can still be sharper

Midfielder feels he has more to come...

20 November 2020

Despite impressing more and more with every performance in an MK Dons shirt – Scott Fraser insists there is still more to come from himself.

The Midfielder has found the net on four separate occasions this season and has proved to be an attacking threat in each game he’s played.

Fraser joined MK Dons three games into the campaign, and without a pre-season, the Scot was playing catch up through the early stages of the season.

“I would still like to be sharper – but that comes with games,” Fraser told the media ahead of Saturday’s clash with Hull City. “You get four to five weeks in pre-season and a number of games – I wasn’t here for that.”

"I’ve been treating the games as friendlies but I feel fitter and sharper – I can slowly feel myself getting fitter."

Although his return in front of goal has been impressive this campaign, Fraser demands highly of himself and believes he should have more goal contributions this year.

“I keep telling the boys I should have more goals and assists. It’s a strange season, once the boys get up to speed we’ll get more goals, I think I should have more goals and once I come into my own – I’ll score more goals.

“Our boys are getting fitter including me and we knew once we got everyone up to speed we’ll do well.”

Fraser was on the scoresheet in last Saturday’s win over Sunderland, with Cameron Jerome also finding the net to help MK Dons pick up three points. The 25-year-old believes Jerome, along with Richard Keogh have made Russell Martin’s side hard to score against.

“I think we’ve got stronger in the defensive side of the game - we aren’t conceding the sloppy goals anymore. We defend set-pieces well and we know teams are going to have to be really good to score against us.

“I think if you see how many corners Sunderland had and Cammy [Jerome] and [Richard] Keysey just won everything. It makes it a lot harder for the opposition when we’ve got that belief.

“When we go to Portsmouth and Sunderland you see the chances we get, no matter how good you are it’s hard to break down 11 grown men that have been coached to stop us.

“It’s really tough, no matter how well we pass and play we’ve been working on breaking a low block in the final third.”
