Coventry, still without a home win in the league this season, took the lead in the 34th minute when Richard Wood powered home a header from Gary McSheffrey's corner.

But they could not keep the advantage for long as Stephen Gleeson's deflected effort flew into the net. Yet after picking up their first league win of the season at the weekend, Robins is happy with the direction in which his newly-acquired side are moving.

He said: "We scored from a set-piece. The players have worked hard on those in training and it was good to see it go in.

"MK Dons are a good team and they have really good movement. We played Arsenal in the cup last week and I thought we coped better with their movement than we did here.

"We have to be happy with the point because I think that last week we would have lost that game. That is now four points we have got from the last two games, and before that we had only got three all season."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
