MK boss Robinson predicts Iron ‘murder’

Milton Keynes Dons boss Karl Robinson believes his side will ‘murder’ Scunthorpe if they choose to sit back against his side at Glanford Park tomorrow.

The Dons boss was left frustrated that his players slipped to defeat against Port Vale last weekend, but felt they did enough to win the game and has fired a warning to Iron boss Graham Alexander ahead of this weekend’s clash.

“It’ll be one of the hardest games of the season so far but if Scunthorpe play like Port Vale did here, we will murder them”, he told the Milton Keynes Citizen.

“Let’s put the cards on the table: if you sit in against us, we will start taking our chances.

“If you dominate a game against us, we’ll hold our hands up. If they come at us, it’s their prerogative.

“I’ve been here for nearly 350 games – come on, I think I know what I’m doing now. I’ve seen it before. But Scunthorpe are top, and will set up to try and beat us.”

Robinson is seemingly under increasing pressure with Dons’ fans following their slow start to the campaign.

They currently sit ten points behind Scunthorpe who lead the way in League One and slipped below AFC Wimbledon for the first time in history following last weekend’s home defeat.
