Russell Martin believes MK Dons are in a ‘good place’ with eight games remaining in the 2020/21 season.

The Dons currently sit 12th in the Sky Bet League One table, three points adrift of the top six and 18 points clear of the bottom four - a dramatic turnaround from mid-December when they were only two points above the drop zone and 13 away from the play-offs.

Russell Martin’s men don’t play this Friday due to Covid-19 issues with Lincoln City but heading into the Easter Weekend, Martin is pleased with where his team currently lies.

“We are in a good place,” Martin said in his press conference, which took place before the decision was made by the EFL to postpone Friday’s trip to the LNER Stadium.

“It’s been a good run of games with a lot of good performances and results, and I’m really pleased with where we are at both physically and mentally.

“We’ve had to work extremely hard to get into this position - trying to climb the league is difficult. We’re playing catch up for a slow start to the season and the run we had before the four wins – it set us back a little bit.

“I don’t look at the table, but it’s nice for (the players) to be rewarded for what they are doing.

“The players are enjoying themselves. The group are in brilliant spirits and I know they feel really good about things and are enjoying driving each other on.

“We’ll see where this takes us. We’ve a tough run of games, but it’s a run we can enjoy. I’m really looking forward to what is ahead.

“We want to finish as high as we possibly can and we’re on course to do that. We just need to drive forward with this momentum and continue to improve.”
