Ian Wright shows Dons players the Wright way

MK Dons coach Ian Wright has shown his strikers a video of himself scoring goals in an attempt to improve their goalscoring abilities.

With the Dons failing to score in their previous two games, Wright (pictured) felt he had to try an innovative way of helping the players.

Wright, who joined the club as a coach in May, has failed to improve the players shooting ability as the club lie 10th in League One after five games.

MK Dons boss Karl Robinson said, “We did a classroom session with some of the forwards.

“Wright was going through some of his goals and what his thought process was when getting into certain areas.”

Still confident after dramatic start

The Dons boss continues: “I showed my daughter and she said ‘are you signing him dad?’ and I said ‘no, that was Ian Wright when he was younger’.

“He’s certainly helping out, the boys love him and to work on that was a unique opportunity for them to have that insight.”

Despite lying mid-table, MK Dons have knocked Blackburn out of the Capital One Cup and take on Yoevil on Saturday, still with a 100 per cent home record.

Robinson remains confident, saying: “They all came in on their day off by no pushing and shoving from us.

"They phoned us and said ‘can we have another session?’ so they brought themselves in,” he said.

“They seem to be in a really good frame of mind. They said ‘we should be better, we should be top’. But we haven’t done much wrong.

“They say they want to be the best they can be, which is a tremendous credit to the football club.”
