Karl Robinson was absolutely delighted, not just with his team but with the amazing support as the U’s came from behind to win 2-1 at MK Dons on Saturday.
Over 2,000 away fans made the trip to Buckinghamshire and that made it an extra special day for Karl on his return to a former club.
“People know that MK means a lot to me and when you come to places like this it is sometimes hard to get it right. I loved my time here, love the people, but at the same time I bloody love what I am doing at Oxford and it’s an amazing club that has welcomed me and my family in with open arms. That’s why the win meant so much.
“I thought the first half was even and we didn’t deserve to go a goal down against a very good team who missed some very good opportunities to score, but in the second half I thought we were really good ourselves. There were aspects of it, our aggression and our press that were really good.
“We came here knowing MK had one or two covid related problems but we had the same a couple of weeks ago when we played Rotherham at home with eight out so we know how hard it can be. Since then we have gone to Sunderland and now MK and taken four points at two clubs who are up there with us, plus the Doncaster game on Tuesday was almost perfection.
“I won't lie to you, when they had a free kick in the last minute I closed my eyes! But I love my players and what they did and how far they have come. For us to come and do what we did against the best coached team in the league was incredible. MK are better than the team I left here and will certainly be competing so to come and win here was a great result.
“We will rest up now and prepare for Wigan. But I want to mention the fans. I know the covid situation is difficult and people will worry but if people conduct themselves properly and look after each other then they should be OK.
“Come and support us again on Saturday in a sensible manner. I thought the fans were absolutely outstanding this afternoon and it was just a great day for all of us.”
