Karl Robinson revels in Milton Keynes Dons display in 4-1 win against Notts County

23 March 2015

Milton Keynes Dons manager Karl Robinson said his players were magnificent in their 4-1 win against Notts County in Sky Bet League 1, which kept the Dons in the promotion hunt.

After being consistently denied by County goalkeeper Roy Carroll in the first half, the Robinson’s men finally took a well-deserved lead just after the hour mark through Carl Baker before Lewis Baker's lob made it 2-0.

Elliott Whitehouse poked home to give the visitors a route back into the game with 10 minutes left but Will Grigg netted his 14th and 15th goals of the season from close-range as the hosts recorded a second straight win.

And with his troops now just four points off second-placed Preston, Robinson is confident they can do something special this season.

"I think the players and the fans were magnificent," said Robinson. "The players' reaction with the fans at the end just shows what it means to them.

"I'm over the moon with the way we played - I'm happy about the performance and not just the result. I look at the performance and the style of the win.

"When it all comes together it is worthwhile watching and it takes your breath away at times.

"The first 25 minutes were magnificent and I think we've become more ruthless in our play - I'm really pleased and I'm excited about what this group can do.

"We have to keep doing the right things and I said to them in the dressing room that at 2-0 we got a bit too flash in our play.

"But we've got to keep on doing what we do best, I'm just so proud of them."
