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

Too Offensive, Too Open And Too Expansive

MK Dons missed out on a chance to close the gap on the league one play offs when they lost 2-0 at struggling Crewe on Tuesday night.

Karl Robinson believes that the thing that let his side down, other than conceding the two goals and missing a penalty, was ill-discipline.

The MK Dons boss said: 'The game hinged on us being very good for 30 minutes then us losing discipline.

'We became too offensive, too open and too expansive. We've conceded 15 goals in the last seven games and that isn't acceptable.

'People were doing their own thing through an eagerness to do too much. We've got to be little bit more honest and open with ourselves.

'We weren't horrendous. We weren't really poor. We were just indisciplined at key moments of the game.'

Chuks Aneke and Ajay Leitch-Smith scored the goals to give Crewe the win, which could've been different had Darren Potter not had his spot kick saved or Samir Carruthers been denied by the bar, but that's the way it sometimes goes.

Robinson is happy, in a way, that he now has a free weekend (as MK Dons are out of the FA cup) and looks forward to working with the players on the training ground.

It was also announced today that the postponed game with Preston, due to Preston's continued FA cup involvement, will now be played on Tuesday 18th February with a 7.45pm kick off.

This site is looking for an editor (at least contributor), so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports them we would love to share it with the masses!
