INTERVIEW: Mark Robins MK Dons Preview

City take on MK this weekend...

10 January 2020

Sky Blues boss, Mark Robins is expecting a tough test when his side come up against and MK Dons side who have had an upturn in results recently.

The Dons head into the game on the back of a three-game unbeaten run in League One, winning their two most recent outings against promotion chasing Portsmouth and Bristol Rovers.

Russell Martin is at the helm for MK and is looking to steer his side clear from the drop zone come the end of the season.

“We’ve just got to concentrate on the games as they come, and MK is the next one and it’s a tough game.” Robins said.

“Things have changed for them and Russell Martin has gone in and stamped his style on them, and they’ve picked up some good results.

“There’s no easy games as we know but it’s a chance for us to continue the good performances and try and get the three points.”

As well as MK’s fine form in the League, City boast a stronger record having won their previous three, with the two latter results coming away from home.

The win against table toppers Wycombe Wanderers was a first win on the road this season and the confidence picked up from the result was taking into the next game against Tranmere Rovers, as three points followed again.

Not only have the results begun to come, but so have the goals, especially with striker Matty Godden currently with six goals to his name in the last two league outings.

“Away from home it’s been pleasing, the two results away from home in the league were fantastic, I think last week obviously getting a replay in the cup was important and an interesting draw should we manage to win it.

“Scoring ten in three games is a good return, we’ll try and limit the goals against, but the performances have been to a good level and that’s what we’re looking for.

“We’re looking to continue to do that and players to continue to enjoy themselves and just go for it and I think that’s got to be the message from now to the end of the season and really that’s the message from us anyway.

“We’ve got to go out there and enjoy it, show no fear and enjoy our performances and see where it takes us.

“The football has been enjoyable to watch and for us that’s the biggest thing, enjoy your football and that rubs off on the support because the supports been fantastic, away from home it’s been outstanding as well and we just want to continue in the same vein really.”
