I think we’ve all been interested in football for long enough now to know that the best team doesn’t always win.

MK Dons were an example of the better side losing against Bradford in Saturday afternoon when a late goal condemned us to a 3-2 defeat.

That’s not to say that we weren’t at fault for the defeat mind as Karl Robinson feels that we were with “silly errors” costing us dear and these must be cut out.

Robinson told BBC Three Counties Radio: ‘We were by far the better team today. Sadly for us, we’ve lost the game, and I know why – silly errors.

‘I’ve not been able to play my best players. I need to get them back in the team because we’ll rectify the errors we are making.’

The performance of the referee was once again something that the boss questioned; he didn’t feel that he gave us anything.

What did please Robbo though was the fight we showed to get back into the game, with him once more emphasising that we were the better side with it his thinking that any neutral would have believed this too.

He added: ‘I was more pleased when we went behind, how the players kept doing the right things to get back in the game. I think if you were here and neutral, you’d say the team in white should have won the game.’

Nahki Wells opened the scoring for Bradford but having won his first England U21 days before Patrick Bamford celebrated this with another goal for us (which is why he was called up) to level.

Fortune favoured Bradford when Kyel Reid restored their lead with a miss-hit cross but Shaun Williams did what he does so well, kept his cool to level once more for us from the penalty spot but James Kennedy had the final word to secure the points for the Bantams.

It’s frustrating, even more so if errors are costing us but not really being learned from, but some comfort (if not much) would be taken from another good MK performance….
