ROBBO: DON’T RULE US OUT YET

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Char­lie Ben­nett

AFC Wim­ble­don may be the new boys in League One, but de­fender Paul Robin­son sees no rea­son why they can’t sneak into the play-off places.

The Dons, pro­moted last sea­son, beat bit­ter ri­vals MK Dons on Tues­day, lift­ing them into the top half of the ta­ble prior to yes­ter­day’s clash with Fleet­wood

Cen­tre-back Robin­son, 35, be­lieves a late charge could cause a sur­prise or two as they look to fin­ish off the cam­paign with a flour­ish and mount a late run for the play-off places.

“It’s a good plat­form and now we have eight games left to go and at­tack. We want to fin­ish in the top half and top ten if pos­si­ble,” he said.

“Co­in­cid­ing with (Tues­day night’s) result, a top ten fin­ish would rep­re­sent a re­ally, re­ally good sea­son for our first in League One.

“But we have eight games left and, be­ing re­al­is­tic, the play-offs is nor­mally 75-76 points so that would mean we would have to pretty much win all nine games.”

UP­BEAT: Paul Robin­son
