‘Last year we would have maybe lost the game’ - Judge on Town’s 1-1 MK Dons draw
Alan Judge was happy to come away from Milton Keynes with a point against a ‘very good’ Dons side.
The Blues led early through a Jon Nolan goal which came against the run of play, with the hosts continuing to have the better of things before Daniel Harvie ultimately found an equaliser in the second period.
Town have to dig in during the second half after an injury to Flynn Downes’ left them with only 10 men, with all three substitutes used, and for that reason Judge believes his side can be happy with their point.
“I think it’s a good away point because I thought they were very good,” the Irishman admitted after the game.

“I think they will cause a lot of teams problems this year and will win a lot of games.

“There are a lot of good teams in the league this season with some very good players so we have to just keep going. There will be bumps along the way and it’s not always going to work, the way we’re playing, but maybe next week we will be better again.

“A lot of the teams who wanted the league to finish last season have brought in a lot of players, funnily enough, so we’ll wait and see.
“The teams who said they had no money have brought in a lot of players.”
Judge, who has missed out on the last two Republic of Ireland squads, returned from a hamstring injury as a substitute at Stadium MK and will be hopeful of minutes on Tuesday, when the Blues host Gillingham in the EFL Trophy.
