MK Dons manager Karl Robinson felt a "nervous" second half performance deprived his players of all three points on Tuesday night.

Huddersfield Town, who had Philip Billing sent off after 48 minutes, rallied to rescue a point through Nahki Wells late on.

But Robinson felt that his own team's display after the break did not match their performance from the opening 45 minutes, when they took the lead through Alex Revell, and that let Town back in.

"In the second half, everybody looked so nervous," declared Robinson.

"We were smashing things long and putting our foot through it, and in the first half, that wasn’t us. In the first half, my players were one of the best we’ve seen in a long time, and in the second, it was like Saturday.

"I’m absolutely gutted with our second-half performance.

“I tried everything from the touchline to change it, and tried tactics and personnel and everything to change the course of the game. The players didn’t swerve responsibility, but we just looked edgy."

David Wagner's inspired decision to send Mark Hudson and Joel Lynch up front for the latter stages bore fruit when the skipper set up Wells for Town's equaliser late on.

But Robinson felt that his team had limited Town's opportunities and only one long ball made the difference.

He added: “I think that was their only shot on target in the second half, and it came from a big hoof from the back we let bounce. But I’m not hanging anyone out to dry tonight – we’ve got a point away from the danger zone and with a better goal difference."
