MK Dons boss Karl Robinson praised “a very good away performance” after watching his side beat Swindon Town 2-1 at the County Ground.

George Baldock’s stunning winner, in the third minute of second-half stoppage time, gave the Dons all three points and helped Robinson’s side leapfrog Town into seventh place in League One, after Antony Kay had cancelled out Michael Smith’s opener for the hosts.

Robinson, who before the match had labelled the tie “a ding-dong cup final”, was delighted with his players’ efforts.

He said: “It was just a very good away performance. I said this was big. I think you've seen how we celebrated, how important it was to us all.

“Our game plan was to be 0-0 at half-time. We felt if we get to half-time 0-0 we have enough quality to go and win it.

“Today, I thought Dele Alli was sensational. But what helped him was Alan Smith. I thought that was his best game in an MK Dons shirt.”

Robinson myst be having a laugh they are such a poor side and really poor first half and then we went down to their level second half.
Two really poor sides on show if they make the play offs but looking at them saturday they wont go anywhere apart from stay in L1 again.
Two shots two goals and we gave the standard free header for their first goal.
The centre back who was dying 10 minutes earlier got the first no one marking him whatsoever and how players can not pick up players in the box is beyond me.
How many times have we done it this season and for Ward to come out today and say defending is more complex well i was always taught big players big up the big guys and everyone had a man each yes their movement in the box and you can lose a players but there guy was free.
