MK Dons 1 Charlton Athletic 0
Improvement? Quicker out of the blocks? Didn’t lose 3-0? More possession? 3 shots on target? Ademola Lookman? Or according to the Interim Head Coach “We had the game in our command.”
Let us not get into the rarefied air of Karel Fraeye’s tactical mind. Let us look at the facts.
Tonight’s game was against a team that will be a relegation rival, that’s if we can stay in touch. MK Dons had lost 7 of their last 9 games, and 5 of their last 6 at home. They hadn’t scored in 5 hours of football up until Dean Bowditch scored his first goal since the opening day of the season. And Churchy missed an absolute sitter the give the result a more realistic scoreline.
It was a very poor result. They could hide behind Middlesbrough and the players and Interim Head Coach did but no excuses tonight. Not fitness, finishing with 10 men, taking risks to get in opponent’s half, injuries, Watt apparently knackered. None at all.
This is 2 points from 36, no goals in 7.5 hours of football. The worst goal difference in the division. There was 8 minutes of injury time. Where was the pride? Where was the ability and inspiration from the touchline?
Fraeye talks as if he will be around a while, at least until after the international break. The toughen up (10 yellow cards in two games) and smile genius from Belgium’s Sunday League. Heaven help us.
Made in Charlton. Destroyed in Belgium.

Relegation watch: Rotherham lost at Middlesbrough to a single goal, Bolton were beat 2-0 at Ipswich, Bristol City, who look like they can grab a result, beat Wolves. Huddersfield were just 6 minutes from snatching am impressive win at Reading and fortunately Forest may come and join us as after losing at Preston. 8 games without a win for Forest. Preston unbeaten in 5 without conceding.
