MK Dons boss reveals banter with Stevenage fans during his side’s 3-2 win at Boro today

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson says he wishes Stevenage ‘all the luck’ in their bid to stay up this season.

Robinson was speaking after his side had come from 2-0 down to beat Boro at the Lamex Stadium today, and added that while Boro were ahead their fans were ribbing him from behind the dugout that he’d be handed his P45 in the morning.

“They’re in a dogfight down there, they’re in the relegation zone,” Robinson said.

“They played an awful lot more football first half and made it difficult for us to get anywhere near them.

“They played a different system and I had to change things at half-time. I had to dig deep tactically as well. The players had to dig deep and trust their own ability.

“The players rallied round and got the result. At 2-2 I would have said to the boys that it was probably a fair result but with that eight minutes added on and with the wind in our favour, and with them looking nervous we kept knocking on the door and we got the valuable win.

“The fans were great. I love coming here because it’s a great atmosphere. I got told I was getting sacked for 70 minutes of the game. It’s a good atmosphere and it’s a good football club and I wish them all the luck in the world.

“We want us [local teams] all to be as high as we can, we really do. I want the competitive nature in our area and I wish them luck for the rest of the season.”
