    Milton Keynes Dons claimed four points in two matches this week and manager Russell Martin hopes his side can start building some momentum from it.

    This week saw the Dons claim a 2-0 victory over Wigan Athletic on Tuesday before battling out a 1-1 draw against bitter rivals AFC Wimbledon yesterday.

    This was the first time the Milton Keynes club have claimed points in back-to-back league matches in the 2020/21 season, which has helped see them move out of the relegation zone - currently sitting in 19th place.

    Matches continue to come thick and fast, with another mid-week match just up the M1 against Northampton Town next Tuesday, which Martin hopes can be the start of some momentum in results for his side.

    Speaking in his post-match press conference on Saturday, when asked about using these past two results to start building momentum, Martin commented: "I hope so, it needs to be. Performance wise this season, overall we've been satisfied."

    "Some of the results just haven't been good enough, it's that simple, so we need to make sure we keep building."

    "You can see the team's growing all the time, we're having to tweak things game to game with personnel."

    He added: "Look at the bench today and how strong that is, they've all been players who have been big for us at some point."

    "We've got some really important games coming up, it's another tough run, but we've got to try and build some momentum now as a group."

    He concluded: "If we go and win on Tuesday, it's been a brilliant week."
