Karl Robinson is looking forward to walking out in front of a packed stadiummk on Saturday afternoon when Wolves visit.

The top of the table side have sold 9,000 tickets for the game and it is expected to be the highest ever attendance at the ground for an MK Dons game.

And Robinson is excited by this prospect and has praised the club’s fans for their support this season and says he shares the same ambitions as them.

The gaffer said: “I think we’ve sold over 18,000 already; I’d like 22,000 here.

“I think that’d be brilliant to have 22,000 in the stadium because I think it is something that will really make people stand up and take note.

“We’ve got our core fans now, our real die-hards; they’ll stick with us through thick and thin.

“Then we’ve got fans that come if we’re doing well or not as well, and we’ve got the ones who we’ve got to convert and Championship football will do that.

“Our fans this year, the core ones I’m talking about, have been brilliant, they really have, it’s such a big support mechanism for us all.

“To clap your team off after Gillingham on Tuesday was a real bitter pill for us to swallow because we care so much and we know their frustrations and I share their ambitions.

“This stadium has been built to be filled week in, week out and I can’t wait, I’m excited by the game on Saturday and I know the players are.”
