Dons ‘live in hope’ as they approach the final two games of the season still with a chance of a play-off spot.

After their 2-0 victory over Colchester on Tuesday night, they are four points from the top six with just two games remaining after Swindon’s comfortable win over Crewe Alexandra.

But Robinson remained defiant, and said he’s pleased to be taking it down to the bitter end.

“After the season we’ve had, I’m pleased to be taking it to the final two games,” he said.

“We rode our luck for the middle part of the first half, but Ian McLoughlin made some important saves to keep us in it. And if we keep two more clean sheets, we break the club record.

“In the second half, we looking in control and we waited for that counter-attack. It was a very good away performance today.

“We’re still in the mix, we can still hope and pray. If Swindon don’t win on Saturday, we take it to the final day and that is a tremendous testament to us.

“We’re seventh in the league now, we made it to the fifth round of the FA Cup - it’s been a good season for us.

“We set our stall out at the beginning of the season to be out of this league, but we set up with all our best players fit.

“Today, the players put in a gritty performance. “
