MK Dons manager was frustrated with both refereeing decisions and the state of the pitch in his sides 2-1 loss away to Bradford, but also accepted that his side were second best.

Dele Alli got the opening goal for the Dons but Bradford got back to claim 3 points with goals from Clarke and Hanson.

Robinson saw the poor state of the pitch, and the Don`s inability to adapt to it, as one of the key reason for the result, telling BBC Three Counties Radio:

They`ve got players better to deal with that, simple as that, and we couldn`t match them

We tried to play a little different to how we normally play but it just didn`t suit us

‘We looked shaky at the back, we didn’t defend well as a team.’

There was also a handball in the build up to Bradford`s second goal and, while he was obviously frustrated, Robinson minimised his criticism of the referees:

“I`m sick of it, and that`s two games on the spin now (following another alleged handball in the draw with Bristol)

‘If I moan about it I get told I’m moaning and making excuses. But the referee has to be better.’

The Dons also missed out on an opportunity to go top of the table but Robinson noted that it`s not just the Dons who`ll have difficult games, and that he`s to use this result as motivation for his side.

“It`s the team who adapt the best to losing a game, and they`ve all still got to come here (Bradford)

“They`re all gutted in there, but I can also see the pain in their eyes. It`s something I can build on for future games.

“We use this as motivation”

Up now for Robinson and the Dons is a trip to Gillingham on Saturday.
