Iron forward Tom Hopper insists he and his teammates will be looking for nothing less than three points when MK Dons visit Glanford Park on Saturday.The 22-year-old highlighted the challenge which Karl Robinson’s side will pose, but stated the squad is more than ready for it.
Hopper told The Iron PlayerHD: “In past seasons they’ve been a good passing team, and they like to play football.
“We’ll look to try and get at them and find ways to beat them. They’re a good footballing side, so they’ll be coming here looking for a positive result, as will we.”
Hopper says the hard work on the training ground has been put in ahead of the game, and added that it’s now all about converting that into a positive performance.
He too revealed that everyone will be looking to right the wrongs of last Saturday’s draw with Northampton Town, and Hopper feels the team are in a good place to do so.
“Preparations are going well. We’ve been working hard all week at what we want to do and how we want to set about the game,” he revealed.
“We were quite quick to reflect on last Saturday’s game and then put that to bed, which we’re generally quite good at.
“We’re never too up when we’re doing well and we’re never too down when we’re disappointed. Like I said, we’ve reflected on that and we now move onto MK Dons.”
United have had a full week to prepare for the game due to having no midweek clashes, and the striker believes it’s sure to be a benefit come 3pm on Saturday.
“I think it’s good, but obviously when you’re doing well you want the games to come thick and fast,” he stated.
“That changed this week, which gives us a chance to get some recovery in, compared to the last couple of weeks which have been quite busy. It’s a good chance to settle down and work on a few things that we haven’t had chance to do in the previous weeks.”
