MK Dons boss Karl Robinson praises Derby goalkeeper Scott Carson

Derby County West Stand

Milton Keynes Dons lost 3-1 to Derby County in the Championship at the weekend.

Milton Keynes Dons boss Karl Robinson has admitted to the club's official site that Derby County goalkeeper Scott Carson was outstanding against them at the weekend.

MK Dons lost 3-1 to Derby in the Championship on Saturday, but their performance was a positive one, and they forced Carson into action on numerous occasions.

Unfortunately for Robinson, the former England international was in fine form - and his saves were a big reason why the Rams were able to collect the three points.

“Scott Carson was probably man of the match," Robinson admitted after the match. "He was outstanding and that save in the first half is as good as I’ve seen for many years."

Carson was signed by Derby this summer, and his form at the iPro Stadium has been brilliant so far, as he rapidly establishes himself as the club's first-choice goalkeeper. 

Against MK Dons, he was called into action on countless occasions, and he stood up to his challenge well, making a number of fine saves.

Thanks to the 30-year-old's heroics, Derby were able to punish the Dons, and they ended up running out 3-1 winners after goals from Bradley Johnson, Tom Ince and Darren Bent. 

Derby's overall performance was not their best, but the victory has put them into eighth place, as they start to climb up the Championship table.
