Karl Robinson hails final day drama after Milton Keynes Dons secure promotion

5 May 2015

Milton Keynes Dons manager Karl Robinson hopes to never forget the day his side earned promoted to the Sky Bet Championship, after they went up in style with a 5-1 thrashing of Yeovil Town.

Despite winning easily, the Dons still needed a favour from Colchester United and their late winner against Preston North End ensured that Robinson's men went up automatically, bringing second-tier football at stadiummk for the first time ever.

Robinson said: "It means so much to all the players - even the loan players, you can see them all jumping up and down.

"It's just an amazing day and we'll never, ever forget this.

"I'm just going to take this all in and try to remember this forever and I don't want to wake up and find out it's all a dream.

"The players today have been sensational and I've seen some special times here and this is up there with all of them.

"This is the best day in our history and hopefully now we can move on to bigger and better things as a group.

"When we found out Colchester had missed a penalty there was big lull and all of a sudden we became nervy and went backwards a little bit.

"Then all of a sudden we found out they had scored and the fans were magnificent, the players were magnificent."
