KARL ROBINSON watched MK Dons strengthen their grip on fourth place in League I with a 2-1 win at Rochdale then warned play-off rivals Town: "There’s far more to come from us."

Jay O’Shea and Dean Bowditch netted for MK, and their boss said: "I don’t think we got out of second gear really.

"That was us playing within ourselves a little bit, and if the game had challenged us more, we could have upped our tempo.

"You feel for Rochdale after they got relegated the week before. It was difficult for them to bounce back.

"But I thought we put in a very professional performance. It wasn’t a great spectacle, but it was an accomplished display."

Robinson, whose side have a two-point advantage over Town as the pair chase the final fourth spot and home advantage in the second leg of the play-off semis, added: "I didn’t really want Darren Potter or Stephen Gleeson to pay the full 90 minutes, so I got them off the pitch when we felt comfortable in the game.

"We have had a good week. We gave the players four days off, so I knew we wouldn’t be at our best, but it’s all part of our play-off planning."
