MK Dons boss Russell Martin is furious that his side failed to beat ten-man Coventry City at Stadium:MK on Saturday afternoon and says that his side controlled the game from start to finish.

Martin’s side missed a penalty early on that also saw Sky Blues defender Declan Drysdale shown a straight red card.

But the Dons failed to capitalise with a man advantage as City debutant Tyler Walker pounced in the dying moments to make the most of some sloppy defending to fire his new club into the second round of the Carabao Cup.

“I am disappointed we did not win it. We controlled the game, even at 11v11 we completely controlled the game,” he told the media after the game.

“We created chances and started the game really well and even after missing the penalty, a big moment in the game, we kept control.

“It is not always easy against ten men but we created a lot of chances and should have scored a couple of goals.




He continued: “I told them at half time that the only way Coventry would score would from a counter-attack of a set-piece.

“We stopped the counter-attacks, we did really well, but it is those big moments in football that top players deal with and unfortunately we didn’t deal with it.

He added: “I am angry at that, I am disappointed at that because our performance deserved a lot more.”
