MILTON Keynes Dons manager Robbie Neilson admitted that he felt his side had done enough to take all three points away from the County Ground on Saturday.
Despite Kieran Agard’s penalty in the 43rd minute, MK Dons were unable to find the back of the net as they missed several golden opportunities as well as hitting the post twice and Lawrence Vigouroux’s crossbar.
And, as is so often the way in football, Neilson’s side were punished in the cruellest of manners as Jonathan Obika struck in the 91st minute of the encounter.
With five minutes of added time still to be played, the Dons still had one final chance to clinch it at the death, Ed Upson skewing a one-on-one with Vigouroux high and wide.
“We are massively disappointed to not come away with all three points,” said Neilson.
“We created eight, nine, ten real great opportunities.
“We’ve hit the crossbar, hit the post twice, we had six or seven one-on-ones with the keeper and we worked hard for it.
“The positives we need to take out is that we are creating chances and we created a number of chances and if our finishing was better, we would be sitting here after winning by four or five goals.
“When it’s only 1-0 with a couple of minutes to go, we go gung-ho and we make a mistake with sloppy passing in the middle and it resulted in a goal.
“When you play against a team that is struggling at the bottom of the league, they had to win today, and we knew if we got to two nil the game was finished.
“You go 1-0 with a couple of minutes, they were chucking everyone up there, the centre-halves go up, they bomb them forward and even then, I knew that we would get chances because they were open at the back.
“They kept in the game, they kept fighting, they got their goal and it was our fault that we didn’t win the game, and ultimately that’s it, we didn’t do enough to win it.
“Today we were the total dominant team and we played some fantastic football.”
