MK Dons boss underwhelmed at second place

MK Dons boss Karl Robinson has expressed his frustration with only being second in League One.

The Dons, level on 22 points with two other sides, are five points behind leaders Charlton.

"I'm very disappointed, we should have had two extra points against Bury and two extra against Charlton," Robinson told BBC Three Counties Radio.

"Put those four points on it and it's a different league table, because then we are competing with Charlton."

Had Milton Keynes, who beat Notts County 3-0 at the weekend, taken wins rather than draws against the Quakers and Addicks, they would be level on points with the division's top side.

"You'd have to reduce the points for Charlton because they shouldn't have got a draw Tuesday night," Robinson continued.

"I thought we were magnificent Tuesday, excellent at Bury, and just as good against Notts County."

Despite only losing once in the league this season, the victory over the Magpies ended a five-match run without a win, which included a League Cup defeat by Burnley.

Robinson added: "I'm getting a stupid question from the media, 'are you pleased with your first win in five?' or whatever it was. Come on.

"Huddersfield, Sheffield Wednesday, Charlton, Burnley, you can't put us in the same bracket as them, we're light years behind them but we're competing with them."
