Daniel Harvie wants to give the MK Dons supporters something to cheer about again after a rough start to the season.

Saturday’s defeat to Accrington Stanley saw the club go nine games in League Two without a win, dropping them to 18th in the table. Add to that a change in head coach last week after Graham Alexander was sacked and Mike Williamson hired, there has been plenty of discontent amongst the fanbase.

With back-to-back home games this week, beginning on Tuesday night against Bradford City before Swindon Town visit on Saturday, Harvie hopes Dons can end their barren run and give the fans something to be happy about.

“I said it after the Wrexham game - the fans have been through a lot over the last year, and they want action on the pitch, not just words from us,” he said. “We need to show on the pitch that we want to win, and we have to start winning, that's the bottom line. We have to do it, have to go out there, give 100 per cent and win those games.

“The morale is there, even though we've been through a sticky patch, and it makes it stickier going through this change of managers. But I think we played some really good football on Saturday, and created some good chances but it didn't go our way.”

Speaking about tonight’s clash with Bradford, he added: “No game is a gimme. That's football. We want to win every game, regardless of where or how we play, we want to win. We want to win here at home, make it a place we're confident and good enough to win against whoever we play.”
