Karl Robinson says that MK Dons did not deserve to lose to Tranmere Rovers in this afternoon's League One clash at Prenton Park.

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson has vented his frustration with the referee following today's 3-2 defeat to Tranmere Rovers.

A second-half penalty from Ryan Lowe and James Rowe's late strike saw the home side come from 2-1 down at Prenton Park to win 3-2.

The 33-year-old Dons boss felt hard-done by, and enticed punishment for his critical remarks - although he conceded that the decision to award a penalty when Jordan Spence pushed James McNulty was the correct call.

"I am shell-shocked," PA Sport quotes Robinson as saying. "The players didn't deserve to lose the game but two mistakes have cost us. You have to say well done to Tranmere.

"I will say the officiating wasn't good enough and they can do what they want to me, I don't care. The referee has got the rules blatantly wrong over an offside decision that could have given us something from the game. I should be able to come out here and say that he has got the rules wrong.

"The penalty Tranmere got was a definite one. We scored two great goals and theirs were scrappy. The team played very, very well but for whatever reason everything seems to be going against us."

MK Dons are 11th after 14 games in League One.
