Robbo backs Dons to get goals
Milton Keynes Dons,
MK Dons manager Karl Robinson insists his side will soon start to make better use of the chances they create.
Despite losing 1-0 at Walsall, the Dons dominated the game. Prior to Dean Holden scoring the only goal after 17 minutes, Dean Bowditch had one shot cleared off the line and saw another hit a post in the 19th minute. In the second half the visitors dominated but could not manage an equaliser, substitute Alan Smith having one fierce shot well saved by Saddlers goalkeeper David Grof in injury time Told that his men had forced 15 corners during the game, Robinson said: "It was not a case of things going wrong, we just didn't take our chances. But credit to Walsall, we had all the ball but some of their last-ditch defending was remarkable. "One of my lads (Darren Potter) could have gone down when tackled in the box in the second half and we would have had a penalty, but he was honest. It's disappointing for our fans who have now seen us twice in a week (against Northampton in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday night) and got nothing. Now the players have put pressure on themselves for the next two games." Robinson added: "There have been some shock results today in this division, and Yeovil, who we play next week, lost to Bournemouth. So many teams can beat each other - Walsall have beaten us. If you don't take your chances the back four start getting disappointed and the home fans get confident. But we shall turn that pressure into goals."
