Patrick Bamford believes Dons could have locked out Leyton Orient but for a couple of mistakes.

After scoring his 11th goal of the season on Saturday against Leyton Orient, Bamford admitted he drifted out of the game in the second half, but felt Dons deserved something from the game at Brisbane Road.

He said: “When we got the first goal, I thought we were on to three points. If we’d have held the lead until half time, we’d have gone in a lot more confident. It was disappointing to concede just before half time.

“Both goals were preventable, but these things happen.

“As a player, when you lose, it’s soul destroying. There are some long faces in the dressing room, but we know we have to bounce back and win next Saturday. “

“It’s nice to be scoring, but there are a lot of players who can offer goals. They’re just going through a little drought at the minute.”

But losing the last four matches away from stadium:mk, Bamford doesn’t believe away form should be a concern.

Bamford said: “I didn’t think about the previous games, I just came here thinking we needed to win. A lot of the players will think the same.

“The more people keep reminding us, the more we’ll think about it!

“But when you look at the games individually, the games have been so weird.

“Today against Leyton Orient we were unlucky, against Gillingham we played well but fell at the last hurdle and against Peterborough it was just one of those days and their keeper had a worldie.”
