Karl Robinson insists his MK Dons team must win all their remaining games if they are to reach the npower League One play-offs following their frustrating goalless draw with Crawley.
Ryan Lowe was twice denied by the offside flag in the first half and again late on as the Dons failed to convert their dominance into a third straight win. The Milton Keynes club are seven points adrift of a top-six spot with five matches left.
Robinson said: "I've got a lot of respect for Richie Barker and his team but I think we've pummelled them. We had so many chances and they weren't just half-chances, I'm talking gilt-edged chances.
"I'm absolutely shell-shocked, it's frustrating me because the players and the fans don't deserve that. We've got to be more clinical, we understand that, but the saves the keeper pulled off in the first half were world class. Ryan's second goal was definitely onside, I've seen it again.
"I don't think the players can do any more apart from put the ball in the back of the net. It was the most dominant performance you are going to see anywhere up and down the country.
"It's win all-out on Tuesday against Swindon now. It's no-holds-barred, we've got to win all the games so at least we know where we are. We're far from out of it - if we perform like that from now until the end of the season I think we will win all our games and that will be enough."
Lowe had a header and a tap-in ruled out early on before his close-range half-volley was brilliantly saved by Paul Jones. Dons forward Dean Bowditch also blasted a 25-yard drive inches wide of the post before crossing low for Daniel Powell to somehow blaze over the crossbar from four yards out.
The luckless Lowe dragged another good chance wide after the break and then had a third goal disallowed for offside after finishing well from a tight angle.
Crawley boss Barker said: "It's a good point. I wasn't particularly happy with the first half, we worked on certain things that we weren't putting in place. So we talked again at half-time and we put them in place much better in the second half.
"We showed them a little bit too much respect in the first half but they're a very good side and they should be higher than where they are in the league. But to come here and keep a clean sheet and take away a point with some key players missing is excellent."
