Head Coach Karl Robinson was not about to get carried away after his side put in another excellent performance to beat Peterborough on Saturday. Cameron Brannagan’s strike divided two strong teams, who meet again on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup.
“We played well” Karl told iFollow. “If I’m critical we should maybe have made more of our chances when we flooded the box, but we played with real confidence and I don’t have any superstars, they are just a great group of men. I think that’s one defeat here in 2019, ironically against Peterborough, and I was worried after watching them in the build up because they have quality and when they get into a rhythm they are a very difficult team to stop.
“We looked strong though; Jamie Mackie’s heart and desire for example or James Henry who I thought had his best game for us. It was a game that I will remember for a long time because of the way we played, we were sensational at times. Ben Woodburn is such a good footballer, Cameron Brannagan did great for us but I could go through the whole team: the back four were exceptional, Jamie Hanson has kicked on from last season…
“They are all a pleasure to be around and the fans made it for them. Home seems like home now. We love playing here right now and have to make it a fortress. Winning breeds a warmth.
“But it means nothing yet. Four points from two games is good but we should be sat here with six. But I’m pleased for the players and for the fans. Someone just told me it’s my 200th win as Manager, which is nice, but the most important thing is to stay calm with our performance. We have set a new bar since the turn of the year here and things are slowly starting to work and I am pleased with the way everything went today.”
