Murray can inspire Dons - Robinson

12 September 2012

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson has likened his team to US Open champion Andy Murray as they resume their efforts to secure promotion from League One against Yeovil on Saturday.

The Dons have crashed out in the semi-finals of the play-offs for the previous two seasons, but Robinson believes his players can emulate Murray, who won his first grand slam on Monday, in finally achieving their ultimate goal.

"What we're doing is right and it's very similar to what happened to Andy Murray on Monday," Robinson told the club's official website.

"He believed in himself despite going a long time without winning a Grand Slam yet he still believed in his ability and came out on top.

"Football is not too dissimilar, we believe in each other and ultimately we'll get it right at some stage."
