Jackson: A fair result

Head Coach Mark Jackson reflects on his side's 2-2 draw with Wycombe Wanderers...

4 April 2023

Mark Jackson was content with taking a point from Saturday’s Sky Bet League One clash with Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park.

Jackson’s Dons extended their unbeaten run to four games following a 2-2 draw with the play-off chasing Chairboys – Jonathan Leko’s second-half strike securing a share of the spoils after David Wheeler’s brace had cancelled out Daniel Harvie’s early opener.

“I think it was fair,” the MK Dons Head Coach said afterwards when he met with the media. “It was a really competitive game, there were periods where both teams dominated so overall it was a fair result.

“We knew Wycombe would put us under pressure from set plays, and both of their games came from them. All in all though we defended well, and showed great character to come back from behind, which is really hard to do here.

“We were strong, and even at 2-1 down we got the ball down and played our game. We connected people, got our passes off, created chances and got shots away.

“We did it well in the early stages of the game, but we died off a bit and allowed Wycombe back into it. But we did it in the second half, got a foothold in the game and helped us get the equaliser.”

Jackson added: “We're happy with a point. If you can't win games, don't get beaten. We want to win every game, that's our approach, but when you're 2-1 down at a top team like Wycombe, to come from behind we'll definitely take a point.”

Saturday saw Anthony Stewart make his long-awaited bow for MK Dons – a debut which was delayed due to an injury suffered within days of his arrival in January, and one which ended up coming against his former club in Wycombe.

“He's showed great character,” Jackson said of his centre-back. “I thought he put in a really strong performance.

“To come in and make his debut after that amount of time out, having signed in the transfer window and not managing to play since then, and to play against your old club shows a lot about him.

“Credit to him and the medical staff, and he showed in the game that he's come back in fantastic physical shape.”


Mark Jackson and MK Dons will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to five games when they face Portsmouth at Stadium MK on Good Friday.
