Robinson’s attacker blast

MK Dons boss Karl Robinson blasted his attackers as ‘not good enough’ after his side were beaten at home by Gillingham.

It was the fourth home game in a row where the Dons have failed to score a goal, and they didn’t even look like scoring on Tuesday against a Gills team who kept just their second clean sheet in 12 games.

Robinson was pleased with his side’s overall performance and thought they deserved to win, but was less than happy with the quality they showed in the final third.

He said: “We’ve not scored at home since Oldham, it’s as simple as that, we changed a number of things throughout the game and we were constantly dominant, but we just can’t score.

“It’s obvious, don’t think I’m not looking for someone to do that, I’m looking everywhere to try and find them.

“It’s just not good enough in the final part of the pitch, I said the boys at half-time, eight out of ten for the back third, eight out of ten for the middle third, but four out of ten for our attacking third. I said if you want to win the game that has got to change.

“We’ve got to be more clinical, it’s so obvious, we were by far the better team, we played relatively well and dominated all areas, we’re just not good enough in the final third.”

Despite the Dons’ loss, Robinson isn’t refusing to rule out finishing in the play-offs, especially as Peterborough were beaten by Preston North End last night.

That leaves his side exactly where they were before the game, three points off Posh who have a game in hand, but with one game less to play now.
