Boss pleads for patience

MK Dons boss Karl Robinson has called for patience as he sets about taking the club to promotion to the Championship. The Dons have managed just a solitary away win all season but head to Tranmere this weekend in seventh, handily placed for a promotion push. Robinson said: "People will judge me on the first three months of the season. But they don't see behind the scenes. I know where we lack and where I want to strengthen, but it takes time and it takes patience. "We know where we want to get to. My focus has never changed and will never change. I focus on the small things that come up, but I have an overall goal. "Everything at this club is right. This is the most qualified staff outside of the Premier League. We have more degrees and more qualifications than ever before - whether it be medical staff, analysts, coaches or the manager - they all have the elite badges in their field. "Everything is prepared in the right way. The one thing I cannot prepare for is someone losing their head in a game, or someone making a mistake. I will get it right, whether it's tomorrow, Saturday or in a year's time. I know what this club needs, the players know what I want, I know what the fans and chairman want, and I will do everything in my power to make sure we get this right."
