Dons will be stronger at their place - May

Boro striker knows FA Cup replay will be difficult, but believes it’s still winnable

BEN May thinks MK Dons will be a more difficult side to beat at stadium:mk next week, but believes Boro can still progress in the FA Cup.

Boro drew 0-0 against the Dons on Saturday and May, who is working his way back to full fitness, believes his side had enough chances to have made next Tuesday night’s replay unnecessary.

“It’s a bit disappointing really that we haven’t won the game,” May told The Comet.

“I had one chance and maybe should have hit the target, Stacy (Long) had a good chance and is a bit disappointed that he hasn’t scored and I think we were the better team overall.

“It’s a bit of a shame though as we’re going to go to their place and they’re going to be stronger at their place but the game’s winnable and we’ll look forward to it.

“We knew it was going to be hard as they are from the league above and they’ve obviously got good players but we’ve done ourselves justice and we should be in the next round of the FA Cup.”
