Managers relieved grudge match is over

Published Add your comment

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson was relieved that the historic 2-1 FA Cup win over bitter rivals AFC Wimbledon passed without any major trouble.

Jon Otsemobor flicked in a last-minute winner to send Milton Keynes through to the third round after Jack Midson had cancelled out Stephen Gleeson's first-half opener. Both sets of supporters spilled onto the pitch while celebrating goals in a match which was the first ever between MK Dons and the club that was set up after Wimbledon's relocation to Milton Keynes in 2003.

And Robinson said: "I'm tired, it's been a really tough week. I just thought the game typified two sets of teams with great hunger and passion for the club that they play for. I think two teams can walk away from this stadium very proud of each other and that to me is all I wanted."
