MK Dons manager Karl Robinson is not getting carried away, despite his side extending their unbeaten League One run to six games with a 3-1 win at Carlisle.

Charlie MacDonald put the visitors ahead on the stroke of half-time, Dean Bowditch added a second after the break and although Lee Miller scored on his home debut for Carlisle, Dean Lewington wrapped up the victory.

"When Carlisle get a storm behind them they can turn it on. I was disappointed with their goal. We gave a free-kick away and the defending was not like us.

"We are slowly getting there but I'm keeping my feet firmly on the ground. It's another one put to bed and the lads can relax for a few days now.''

Carlisle manager Gregg Abbott was frustrated after a second home defeat of the campaign.

"We only really played as well as we can for about 20 minutes," said Abbott.

"We haven't asked them enough questions. Their goals were clinical but we had the ball on all three occasions and gave it away and it ended up in the back of our net.

"They played very well on the day but we contributed to that. There's no throwing teacups and slamming doors but people have got to work hard to get the basics right."
