Football - Robinson: Dons deserved draw

MK Dons Karl Robinson was pleased his team accrued their first point of the season after drawing 0-0 with Shrewsbury.

PA Sport Report

Shrewsbury have been widely tipped to struggle by the bookmakers this season but they created the better chances against the Dons.

And visiting keeper David Martin made a series of fine second-half stops to twice deny John Marsden before somehow blocking a close-range effort from Aaron Wildig.

Robinson said: "We walk away from here with a point, something to build on.

"We kept a clean sheet against a side who had scored 10 goals here in their last three pre-season home games so to keep them down to nothing was a tall order.

"I thought we were the best team first half and we finished better but they had a spell at the start of the second half when they really tested us. Over the course of play, it was 60-40 to us so maybe it was a fair result."

Robinson added: "You get so many unpredictable results the first game of the season and we've got a point."
