Karl Robinson remained upbeat following a frustrating draw at home to Coventry. The Dons controlled the game for large periods against a talented Coventry side, and Karl Robinson, pleased with the improvements of his side, told BBC 3 Counties Radio:

‘That’s a better Coventry side than we played last year [where the Sky Blues won 3-1 at stadium:mk], and we should have won that convincingly

‘I loved the energy today. I think we really denied them passing angles and opportunities. We’ve really studied the opposition well and the players have took on board tactics that we implemented.’

The Dons remained strong throughout the game with the ability to bring on players from a talented bench, the likes of Benik Afobe, Samir Carruthers and Tom Hitchcock all coming on as substitutes, and Robinson agreed it was a far cry from the thin squad of last season.

‘I’m not frustrated because this team will get better. I went in the dressing room last night and had a little look around the shirts. I secretly had a smile to myself. I thought to myself that we’ve got some good players. Keep these fit and this team will be competing.’

Now attention can fully turn Tuesday night’s League Cup match with Manchester United, one that Robinson is looking forward to just as much as the sell-out crowd that’ll be attending.

‘Tuesday night is going to be a wonderful occasion for the football club.

‘Let me just dissect what’s happened here today and take a look at the players see where they are. Then we’ll have to put our crash helmets on and park the bus and do all the things you have to do with the good teams.’
