MK Dons went into Tuesday’s away clash with Chesterfield desperate for a win after Saturday’s loss to Peterborough, and came out on top with a tight 1-0 win against a dangerous Spireites side.

Dons boss Karl Robinson was thrilled to come away with all the points after the tight encounter, and told BBC Three Counties Radio ‘They’re as difficult as you’ll come against away from home. We go away very positive.

‘This was probably the most difficult game we’ve played this season’.

Robinson admitted a difficulty in deciding on the man to lead the line on Tuesday, but went for Benik Afobe over Will Grigg. Despite missing glorious chances to seal the win the Arsenal loanee scored the winner for the Dons with an unstoppable effort from the edge of the area.

This leaves the Dons boss with some tough selection decisions to make in upcoming games against Coventry and Manchester United – a unusual situation for the Robinson having had lack of choice in recent seasons.

‘For the first time I delayed on the team for 48 hours. It was almost like a toss of a coin because the two of them are fantastic footballers. I don’t know who we`ll go with on Saturday’.

But with injuries to key players David Martin and Lee Hodson, Robinson remained wary of the squad size, and added: ‘To come here with four first team players not on the pitch it shows that we’ve got strength in depth, we’ve brought on George Baldock, brought on Will Grigg. We’ve not got masses of numbers but we’ve got a good 18 who can really compete’.
