We Created Enough Chances To Win - Robinson

Opposing Manager's View

Milton Keynes Dons boss Karl Robinson thought that his side had more than enough chances to end their first ever visit to the Ricoh Arena with a victory.

Speaking to the Milton Keynes Citizen, Robinson said: “I can’t believe it,” said Robinson afterwards. “They started well for the first five minutes, they caused us some big problems, but we were by far and away the better team.

“We created enough chances to win four or five more games. We conceded to a set piece, but from there we were magnificent. They just couldn’t get near us. Our ball retention, wing play, getting the ball wide – it was excellent. We just couldn’t finish our chances.

“Powell had three, Charlie had one, Bowditch had two – I could sit here all night and list them all. But it’s not down to having bad players. They’re just having a barren spell.

“This is a very, very good MK Dons team that is just lacking a little bit of an edge in front of goal.

“People know where we’re going wrong. It’s so glaringly obvious. The players obviously have to put it right themselves, or we’re going to have to make serious changes. I back them to score goals. They did it last year.

“The front six that started the game was the same as last season when we scored more than 110 goals. Today, it just didn’t go in.

“I don’t know what it is. It might be confidence at times, but sometimes it just doesn’t bounce right either. Charlie’s chance got stuck under his feet, a player fell on the ball – it’s just luck.”
