Robbo`s View: MK Dons 4-0 Man Utd

Robbo`s View: MK Dons 4-0 Man Utd

Karl Robinson was both elated with the result and excited for the future of the club following Tuesday night`s victory over Manchester United.

The Dons boss told BBC Sport 'It was a great turnout and a wonderful performance.

'My players deserve an awful lot of credit, the hunger, the desire, the willingness not to concede.`

He also discussed with Citizen Sport the nature of a playing against one of English football`s best sides. 'I`m shocked. I know what everyone will write - about how negative Manchester United were. But for the first 15 minutes they came out of the blocks. They were running past us at speeds we`ve never seen before.

'It wasn`t a smash and grab where we`ve kicked them, we`ve come here to play football, the play we want to play and the way we do, week in, week out.

'I thought we had an edge. We had a game plan.

'We thought we could go into tonight and put a performance on, and we`ve come away scoring four goals. It makes me very happy.

'When we`ve got strikers like Will (Grigg) and Benik (Afobe) coming on, I`ll be honest, felt comfortable in the second half.`

But Robinson also recognised the importance of the fixture to growing the club, and added: 'It`s all about Milton Keynes. We`re everyone`s second club. They support United, Liverpool, whoever it might be.

'We have the largest ratio of U16 season ticket holders, so if they can bring their mates from school, that`d be nice!

'It`ll be disappointing if we don`t get a big crowd on Saturday. They need to get behind them now.

'This is a club that is going places, and that has cemented it in my mind.`
