O’Hora: Disheartened with a draw

MK Dons defender shared his thoughts following the goalless draw at Rodney Parade Stadium…

16 November 2023

MK Dons defender Warren O’Hora made it clear that the team felt ‘disheartened’ as they believed their most-recent Sky Bet League Two result against Newport County saw a possible further two points dropped.

Despite a dominant performance, which saw 67% possession and five shots on target for Mike Williamson’s men, MK Dons couldn’t find the final touch to separate the sides in a goalless draw at the Rodney Parade Stadium.

On multiple occasions the travelling team created strong chances throughout the 90 minutes played. Nevertheless, they couldn’t breach the goal-line of the Exiles, which saw them leave their most-recent league fixture with a point on the road.


“The Gaffer (Mike Williamson) had to pick us up in the changing room afterwards.” Warren O’Hora said as he reflected on the game.

The number five continued “I think we were a bit unlucky, because we were brilliant today. We just needed to get the ball over the line.

“We were very disheartened walking down the tunnel, but although it felt like two points dropped a draw is a draw away from home, and that’s better than losing.

“The most important thing from that game was the performance, we dominated throughout the second half and their goalkeeper had done really well, I must say.

“Having said that, we know results will come with performances, and that’s the biggest part for me.”

MK Dons will value a full two weeks of training due to the postponement of their Sky Bet League Two match against AFC Wimbledon at Stadium MK due to the international break.

Williamson, who recently conducted his fifth game at the helm of the Dons will have a two-week training period with the team before their next league game.

However, the Milton Keynes side will be back in competitive action when they host Northampton Town in the final Group Stage fixture of the Bristol Street Motors Trophy tournament.

On the importance of the weeks ahead, O’Hora had this to say “These two weeks will be massive, especially for the lads who have never played like this before.

“This style of football is why I signed for this club, playing what I believe is the right way. It will be like a mini pre-season for us now. The gaffer will have everything laid out for us, with what he wants us to do over these next two weeks, and we'll all be looking forward to it.”


MK Dons turn their focus to the Bristol Street Motors Trophy and their final Southern Group F fixture with Northampton Town at Stadium MK on Tuesday 21 November.
