"We are still in a great position" - MK Dons boss Karl Robinson

28 January 2015

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson has played down the disappointment of seeing his side fail to go top of Sky Bet League 1 after being held to a 1-1 draw by Scunthorpe United.

It was the Iron who struck first in the 57th minute when striker Tom Hopper netted his second goal in three games after his loan move from Leicester City.

But in a game they dominated in the early stages, centre-back Kyle McFadzean rescued a point for the Dons when he headed a 77th-minute equaliser from a corner.

"We are still in a great position, just two points behind the leaders and with everyone still to play," said Robinson.

"That's not bad is it for a team that was tipped to do nothing this season.

"We are already just four points behind our total points tally for last season.

"We have a strong squad of players with a good mentality and I think we are only going to get stronger and stronger.

"Scunthorpe are a team on the upturn as their results have shown in recent weeks.

"But we have come here and looked in control for much of the game.

"We just had a little spell of about 12 minutes when we lost our way just after Scunthorpe had scored their goal.

"That is the only disappointment for me."
