MK Dons boss on Huddersfield Town and why his players are chasing a dream not money

MK DONS manager Karl Robinson says he will worry about taking on Huddersfield Town in the play-off semi-finals – but only after the regular League I campaign is over.

MK DONS manager Karl Robinson says he will worry about taking on Huddersfield Town in the play-off semi-finals – but only after the regular League I campaign is over.

For the time being, he wants to enjoy Saturday’s 1-0 home win over Sheffield United, and look ahead to Saturday’s trip to already-relegated Rochdale and the visit of Walsall seven days later

Robinson’s side are fighting it out with Town to finish fourth and seal home advantage for the play-off semi-final second leg.

The pair are separated only by goal difference (MK’s is 37, Town’s 30), and Robinson said: "I will worry about Huddersfield in two weeks’ time – and I will worry about them because they are a very good side.

"But let’s enjoy this win first, because it’s a great achievement by everyone here to make the play-offs for two seasons in a row, especially with the budget we are on.

"A lot of my players have chosen not to chase money, but a dream."

On-loan Newcastle midfielder Alan Smith headed a first-half winner for MK, who had Daniel Powell sent off after 65 minutes.
