Reeves Targets Another Three

Reeves Targets Another Three

Milton Keynes Dons secured a dramatic injury-time win over Oldham Athletic of Saturday thanks to Ben Reeves' winner.

Reeves felt that the win was something that was deserved, after a disappointing first half, with the win more important to him than the personal glory of scoring the winning goal.

The midfielder told MK Dons Player: '(My feeling) was more of relief because we were pushing as much as we could to get the goal and eventually it came.

'We were disappointed as a team with our first-half performance but the good thing is we were able to turn it around in the second half and come out positively.

'It was a great goal from Samir, he's capable of scoring goals like that and creating chances like that.

'The half just seemed to be going on forever so I always thought we'd be able to get one more clear-cut chance. We had a couple of close chances before but eventually that chance came and we're thankful for that.'

The great backing that the MK Dons fans gave the side was something that Reeves also felt spurred the side onto victory.

Incredibly this win, with them coming from behind, was the first game that they have managed to come behind to win since May 2012 it was also the first time MK Dons had won back-to-back games this year.

The 21-year-old is already targeting another three points against Preston North End tomorrow with the play-offs not something that are being thought about too much.

He added: 'We're just trying to concentrate on the next game and that's the mentality we've had going into our last two games.

'It's what we need to keep doing instead of worrying where we could be or should be in the table. We just need to concentrate on the next game and keep trying to get three points in every game we play.

'The main thing for us now is to concentrate on Tuesday and hopefully get another three points then.'
