Robinson Relishing MK Return

U's boss looks forward to revisiting his former club

9 December 2021

Oxford United boss Karl Robinson returns to former club MK Dons on Saturday as his in-form side take on one of their promotion rivals.

It’s a third game on the road this week for the U’s but with 2,000 travelling fans behind them it’s a game the Manager is really looking forward to.

“I am made up for MK and the way they are doing. I always get a nice welcome when I go back, but I am going back as Oxford United manager on Saturday and they will want to beat me and I want to beat them.

“I go there probably, personally, in the best place I have ever gone there because I know the staff we have here, the belief, the camaraderie and the unified way this club is right now. The fans will go in their thousands and we go there in anticipation.

“I am proud of my players at the moment, the way they play and their personalities. I thought some of them under-performed on Tuesday, even though we were brilliant. That’s a scary thing to say, where we have played so well and I still thought we had more to give.

“We have players like Billy Bodin and Sam Winnall who are good players not just in this division but the one above, not able to get in the team right now because of the way we are doing. We are looking forward to January and if we can do well in the next three games then we will be in an unbelievable position when the transfer window opens.

“We have had a tough run of games and a lot of travel but there is a thing called desire which helps you overcome that and our recovery has been first class after those games. We have recovered properly, and OK we lose Cameron Brannagan (hamstring) but we have some players who didn’t play on Tuesday and fresh legs and we will go there in a really good position.”
