Russell Martin celebrates promotion

Martin signed for Dons in January after his release from Walsall. An experienced pro at the highest level, Martin has barely missed a game since he put pen to paper - a vital member of the squad amidst Dons' defensive injury crisis in the second half of the season.

Speaking after the 1-0 win over Mansfield which sealed Dons' promotion to League 1, Tisdale said: "Probably my signing of the season was Russell Martin. There is experience and know-how, and then there's doing the right thing over and over and over and over. And he does that.

"But thank you to all the players – it won't happen if they don't listen, and aren't receptive. It's all about doing what you have to to finish at least third."
