MK Dons forward Alex Revell said he hopes the team can learn from their late-in-game errors after Huddersfield took a point.
Revell’s first MK Dons goals opened the scoring, but Nahki Wells struck in the last five minutes of normal time to give a Terriers side that had substitute Phillip Billing sent off a point.
Speaking to the media after the game, the striker admitted his disappointment that the team did not hold on, but also admitted he was hopeful the team can learn from their errors.
He said, “Its disappointing and its hard to take. The draw against Middlesbrough was slightly easier to take because of the fact they had chances, were top and no one expected us to get a result. Its difficult today because we played so well in the first half and should’ve been more ahead, and unfortunately for us, its happened again.
“But we’ve got to take the positives at the minute. Its a young squad and the lads are still learning, and the Championship is a harsh league and you get punished when you make mistakes or present chances. As long as we learn what happened, we can take it into Saturday.”
Revell also added that the team felt they could’ve killed the game off, but added that every point towards safety was a vital one, and it was still a positive out of the evening.
He said, “We had enough forward play in the second half that we should’ve killed it off. But we seem to just drop. The important thing is that this point could still be massive at the end of the season – we’re another one away, and its a positive.”
Revell’s first goal since his January move from Cardiff City came just before the half-hour mark of the game, and after voicing his happiness at achieving it, he also said his next aim is to grab more.
He said, “It was a great bit of play before and then Jonny Williams put in a great ball and my eyes lit up – it was like Christmas, Easter, birthday, all of it at once! But it was great to get that goal. It settles you a little bit because although performances help can you, as a centre-forward, that’s what you’re there, and hopefully that’s the start.”
