The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Pippa Field

MK DONS man­ager Karl Robinson ad­mits the next week will see the club face their tough­est chal­lenge.

Hav­ing faced Chelsea last week­end, the Dons trav­elled to Cardiff yes­ter­day. And over the next seven days Robinson’s side will play host to high-fly­ing Mid­dles­brough, be­fore hit­ting the road to take on play-off chas­ing Derby.

“When you look at the chal­lenge fac­ing us in the next few months, this club has never faced such a fight,” said Robinson. “It’s a fight we’re all will­ing to take on. It’s the chal­lenge ev­ery­one wanted.

“We’re go­ing up against the su­per­pow­ers of the league. When you look at what Chelsea have spent, Cardiff used to be in the Premier League, and what Mid­dles­brough and Derby are spend­ing, it doesn’t get much harder.

“We’ve only been in the rel­e­ga­tion zone once in the last four months, so the play­ers should be ap­plauded for that.We have to make sure we’re ready and fo­cused on each game, never look­ing be­yond the next one.”

READY: Karl Robinson
