We will beat Posh for our fans

It is time to give the fans what they want against their biggest rivals Peterborough, says Don’s new loan signing George Williams.

Dons haven’t beaten their Cambridgeshire rivals since the first leg of the play-offs back in May 2011, with four defeats in a row against Darren Ferguson’s men.

Posh have had a disappointing season, and find themselves languishing in 10th place, four points outside of the play-offs, and 18 behind Dons, who returned to the automatic promotion spots with a 1-o win over Colchester on Tuesday night,

Peterborough had the upper hand at London Road earlier this season though, with Kyle Vassell scoring a late brace in the 3-2 victory.

Williams, who left the club in 2012 to join Fulham’s academy, returned to stadium:mk on loan this week (see page 68) until the end of the season.

And ahead of the huge derby match, the Welsh international hopes Dons can deliver for the fans at stadium:mk.

He said: “We all know how big the Peterborough game is going to be, so we’re going out there to give the fans what they want.

“It’s going to be a big game. We’ve had a chat together, and we want to win it for the fans.”

Karl Robinson’s side returned to winning ways on Tuesday with a 1-0 win over Colchester, but knows all eyes will be on stadium:mk ahead of Saturday’s huge occasion.

He said: “It’s difficult when you’re at the top end of the table because every games gets scrutinised. Everyone expects you to win every game.

“No-one expected us to be up there, but now everyone expects us to stay up there. It’s a difficult mindset.

“If we play well, results will follow.”
