'If It's Football, It's Vital'

I'm Shell-Shocked

You can't fault the entertainment value with games involving us this season really can you?

The goals are flowing, unfortunately we are occasionally conceding a few too many for the liking and this was the case at the weekend. Suspect refereeing calls aren't helping either!

MK Dons looked set for a draw at Tranmere on Saturday afternoon; that was until a late goal condemned us to a 3-2 defeat at Prenton Park...

Lowe came back to haunt us, our former striker scored two goals either side of goals from Powell and Banton before the winner came from Rowe with a little over five minutes to play.

Karl Robinson was left disappointed, once again, by some dodgy calls from the officials with him prepared to take what he gets but he felt he had to speak up following a poor call to rule our an MK Dons goal.

He told BBC Three Counties Radio: 'I am going to say it and they can do what they want to me, I don't care, but that officiating wasn't good enough.

'He's got the rules wrong. When the ball was played Jason was in an offside position but he didn't make any movement to the ball.

'When the next touch from the defender puts him in on goal, which he scores, he's then called offside. But that isn't the rules. He's got the rules blatantly wrong.'

The fact that we scored two "worldies" but still came away with nothing left Robinson "shell-shocked".

It's a tough time for us at the moment, injuries are biting hard and decisions aren't going our way but the boss wanted to make it clear that you shouldn't just look at the result and case judgement, and he wasn't prepared to be critical of his own side.

He added: 'People will be listening in and critical from afar. People who were within here can't be critical of this team - they played very well today.

'For whatever reason, at the moment, everything we seem to do has been going against us. With injuries and missing chances and when we make a mistake we're getting punished every time at the moment.'

They do say that things even themselves out during the course of the season?

At this point in time it might not seem like they will but I'm sure they will and as long as we keep doing the positive things we are the negatives will be outweighed I'm sure.
