Preview: Boss Michael Duff looks ahead to this weekend's match at MK Dons

4 October 2018

Michael Duff hopes his side his side can reproduce the positive aspects of the performace at Exeter City and convert that into a result at MK Dons this weekend.

The manager was speaking ahead of the League Two match against Paul Tisdale's side at Stadium MK on Saturday.

"MK Dons are a big club at this level," he said.

"The crowds aren't massive, but the budget is big, the stadium is big and Paul [Tisdale] has gone in there and done a good job, getting them playing good football, the way he wants them to play so it's going to be a tough test.

"But we went down to Exeter who were second and gave a good account of ourselves and hopefully we can go there and do the same, but pick up points because it's a results business."

Luke Varney's last-gasp goal salvaged a point against Morecambe at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium two days ago.

"The structure and the team didn't look quite as good as it has done on Tuesday night," he explained.

"Morecambe, with the way they play, are a bit random in their play and they look to counter quickly.

"It's sort of their strength and their weakness which it probably looked like in the game.

"Stealing a point when we did was a boost because into the fourth and final minute of stoppage time you think you are losing the game.

"When you take the emotion out of the game and cut it down into chances, and we have just been through all the stats and we did more than enough to win the game.

"I understand people will be disappointed and the players are disappointed because we wanted more and the performance could have been better."
