Robinson praise for Bamford

MK Dons boss Karl Robinson was full of praise for Patrick Bamford after he opened the scoring in a 2-0 win at Hartlepool.

Karl Robinson: Bamford is a special talent

Just six minutes had gone when the on-loan Chelsea striker skirted through the Pools defence and rolled in from 10 yards.

The Dons clinched their first away win since January 1 at out-of-sorts Hartlepool with a second from Dean Bowditch.

By then, Bamford had also been involved in the game's most controversial moment, when Pools midfielder Simon Walton was red carded on 51 minutes after appearing to stamp on the player. He was replaced shortly after being booked for a needless shove on midfielder Jack Baldwin.

But it was his opening salvo that caught they eye, and Robinson admitted: "What a goal, a wonder goal and I was only disappointed he didn't go round the goalkeeper as well. He is special, he is a talent. You have seen how they had to deal with him, they almost assaulted him at times. He's 19, a special talent. You don't get bought for a million pounds if you are an average footballer.

"He is one who people will see the fruits of his talent one day. He's young and petulance can creep into his game. You don't want something to cost him a sending-off."
