Karl Robinson insists he is not getting carried away with the MK Dons' fine start to the new campaign, as the club prepares for an important month of big game encounters.

The Dons currently sit top of Npower League One with 16 points from their opening six games, with the free-scoring promotion contenders netting 15 goals along the way.

But with upcoming fixtures against the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Charlton and Huddersfield Town to come, Robinson is doing everything he can to make sure the players and fans don't get carried away with themselves.

"We're slowly getting there but we're still a long way away," he confirmed. "We need to keep our feet firmly on the ground.

"It's nice not to have a midweek game this week so the players will have a day off.


"They need it and they deserve it, they can go and relax at their own leisure and do what they want for the first time in almost two months."

After a congested Football League schedule, Robinson has welcomed the break from first-team action, and will utilise the extended period of down-time as an opportunity to get focused for the next game.

"We will regroup on Tuesday and it's a great game to look forward to, Sheffield Wednesday away and then it's Charlton and Huddersfield at home.

"That's what it's all about, playing against the big teams."
