Beating promotion-chasing Hull City for a third consecutive victory on the road is sending a message to the rest of League One, said Dons defender Warren O'Hora.

Scott Fraser's 80th-minute penalty secured the 1-0 win at the KCOM Stadium, rounding out a brilliant week for Russell Martin's side, having drawn 2-2 with Sunderland at Stadium MK last Saturday before beating Rochdale 4-1 at Spotland on Tuesday night.

With their win over AFC Wimbledon too, it means Dons have picked up 10 points from a possible 12 in the last two weeks - a run which has seen Dons climb to 13th in the standings.

"It's a statement we sent out this week," said O'Hora. "We just need to keep the ball rolling. The lads are all really happy, enjoying which way it has gone after the slow start to the season. We're a better team now than we were."

On the win over Hull, the Irishman continued: "It's a great result, three points away from home is obviously great for us. It has been a great week really, going away to Rochdale which is always hard and got three points there and came here, stuck to our guns, stuck to our philosophy and made it six points.

"The first 10, 15 minutes Hull were all going to come out and press. We calmed down, got the ball down and played the way we do and they got a bit frustrated and we dominated from then on. In the second half, they came out again and pressed for 10 minutes, but after that we were alright.

"The gaffer told us we were there to win, not draw or lose. Hull had their chances, we had chances too, and it was a good game of football."
