Going into the game with Peterborough at the weekend memories were stirred up of refereeing decisions that arguably cost Milton Keynes Dons promotion a few years ago.

Following the visit to London Road on Saturday for the first league meeting since that league one play-off two legged affair Karl Robinson was left bemoaning the referee again after the 2-1 defeat…

Peterborough were awarded a penalty, whereas MK Dons were denied what he felt was a clear one and this left the boss far from pleased with Darren Drysdale.

Following the game Robinson said: ‘The referee got a lot wrong.

‘Their penalty should never been given as their lad handled the ball just before he went down – and he missed a blatant spot-kick for us.’

You could argue that MK won’t face many sides as good, if not better, than Posh this season and this is a fact that isn’t lost on Robinson either with him paying tribute to them but how they managed to see out the win is bemusing.

Bobby Olejnik in the goal for the home side was inspired, making a string of saves but some efforts were poorly finished too – this result is made all the more amazing by the fact that Posh had not one, but two players sent off so ended with only nine-men!

He added: ‘Peterborough are as good as it gets at this level of football and I don’t think we could have done anymore to win the game.

‘We had 36 efforts on goal, but their goalkeeper had the game of his life and we didn’t have that bit of luck on our side.

‘This result will be really hard to accept for the next 24 hours, but we will learn lessons and move on as we always do.’

It was just “one of those games” wasn’t it, it’s frustrating for the unbeaten run to end but you’ve got to just get on with it and move on, and this is exactly what will now be done…
