Josh McEachran spoke to the press following a 1-1 draw against Oxford United. Although, the midfielder turned his attention towards the trip to the University of Bolton Stadium.
Saturday’s result awarded MK Dons with a point, which has sustained their place out of the drop zone. However, the gap to the bottom four has currently narrowed to just one point.
Mark Jackson’s men look to build on their momentum and continue their unbeaten Sky Bet League One streak to three as they travel to face Bolton Wanderers.
When questioned about the battle against the current fourth place team, McEachran said “I’m really looking forward to going there.
“We’re all fighting for things – Bolton are fighting to get into the play-offs, and we’re fighting to stay out of the relegation zone. We’ll go there looking to play our way and dominate that style of play.”
The number six said that ‘he is in a good place’ since returning from his injury that he suffered during the first game of the season against Cambridge United. “Both fitness-wise and playing games, I’m in a good place. I’ve also got the captains armband which I don’t mind!
“I’m in a good spot and hopefully I can keep on playing and we can keep on picking up points together.”
Once he reflected on Saturday’s result, the midfielder admitted ‘everyone is frustrated’ on the other hand ‘We earned another point and hopefully that breakthrough will come soon.’
A strong start from the home side saw Sullay Kaikai earn his first goal in an MK Dons shirt. However, the winger’s advantage was later cancelled out by Lewis Bate’s attempt within the second half. Looking back on Saturday’s fixture, McEachran had this to say:
“I think the first-half performance is the best we've played here in a long time. It's disappointing though because we had so many chances to put the game to bed.
“Oxford are a good side, so we knew they'd come out fighting in the second, and they were the better team within that period but overall, it's good to get a point. We’ve got to take the positives from the game, but we also need to be more ruthless.
