Warren O’Hora spoke with iFollow MK Dons and reflected on the 2021/2022 season…
MK Dons collected 89 points within the campaign, the third best in Cub history, which helped O'Hora & Co secure a third-place finish. Unfortunately, though, the season concluded after getting knocked out of the Sky Bet League One Play-offs at the semi final stage.
O’Hora, who made the most appearances for the team this season, reflected on the 2021/2022 campaign: “It was a good season and everybody involved really enjoyed it. It didn’t end how we wanted it to but the process of it and the improvement throughout the year has been remarkable.
“Everyone was having fun, because we were winning games and playing well, which made this season more enjoyable for us and the fans, who were right behind us every step of the way.
“For us to do what we did this season is a big steppingstone for the Club, we just need to continue on this path and see what happens.
“We’ve been really good at being hit with challenges and rising to the occasion, the internal challenge that we set here will be trying to do one better next season.
The centre-half finalised his review of the season, he said: “It was a very special year this year, it was a pity that we couldn’t go that one step extra.”
Although the Dons dominated the stats and halved the deficit in the second leg of their semi-final, Wycombe Wanderers’ two-goal lead was enough to deny the Dons the chance of winning promotion at Wembley.
O’Hora was asked about the impact that the end of the 2021/2022 campaign could have moving into the next season. The number five responded: “It’s definitely going to be a positive comeback.
“There’s no need to be negative at all, and anybody that has watched us this season knows that the way we play is very attractive, not many League One or Championship teams can play the way we do.
“It’ll take a couple of weeks to mentally switch off and digest what’s happened, but when you sit back and look at the bigger picture, there’s definitely going to be a positive outcome.
“The steps we took this season, compared to our previous one is huge. Now we will try to build and improve even more, whilst continuing to enjoy our football.”
The Irish centre-back finished his interview by commenteing about the hopes and aspiration of everyone in the team, as well as the Club moving forward.
O’Hora said: “The team are all striving to constantly get better, we are wanting to be the best we can be, and I know the club is similar. We all want to do better next season, the fans deserve it too, especially after this year.
“But for now, we’ll enjoy the break, it’s been a long season and a hell of a season at that, so we’ll go again during pre-season.”
