    Micciche secured his first win as MK Dons manager as they beat high-flying Rotherham at Stadium:MK last night (13/3)

    Despite some good performances since being appointed in January, MK Dons were yet to get a victory under Dan Micciche.

    The reward of three points finally came last night though, largely thanks to a man of the match performance from Robbie Muirhead. His two goals, either side of a Peter Pawlett effort, ensured the Dons ran out 3-2 winners.

    Rotherham are fighting for promotion at the top end of the table and, with MK second from bottom, the Dons were in for a tough game. Micciche says he's used to being the underdog, "In my time in coaching I've always had to deal with being an underdog, when I was here in the academy nobody expected us to develop the types of players that we did, when I worked with England people said you'll never be as good as Brazil, Spain and Germany and we produced that and coming here was another challenge for me and that's why I'm in coaching, that's why I came here."

    Despite having gained a place in the League One table, Micciche insists they're not getting carried away after the result, "No one's getting carried away, there's a long way to go, there's ten cup finals to go and we must build on this now on Saturday"

    MK Dons play Bury at Stadium:MK on Saturday.
