Ince proud of defeated Dons

Published Add your comment

MK Dons manager Paul Ince insisted he was delighted with his side's performance against Burnley despite seeing them slip out of the FA Cup.

Ince felt that the Dons' second-half showing in the 2-1 home defeat deserved at least a replay.

"I said to them after the game that it was a pleasure to be the manager of that team. We played well throughout the game and it came down to making mistakes," said Ince. "Against Premier League sides you get punished but we kept the belief that we could compete and if we had scored earlier it may have been different."

He added: "We could have scored four goals in the second half and I am disappointed in the result - but not the performance. I can't fault any of them.

"We went attacking but what is the point in sitting back and getting beaten? That's not my style. So we went for it and with a bit more luck we could have had a result."
