MK Dons chairman Pete Winkelman admits that the club's pursuit of Championship football has been a 'frustrating' task.

MK Dons chairman Pete Winkelman has admitted that the club's pursuit to secure Championship football has been a 'frustrating' task.

The Buckinghamshire side have reached the League One playoffs twice in the last two seasons under manager Karl Robinson, but were beaten at the semi-final stage on both occasions.

Winkelman has admitted that the club cannot develop until they win promotion to the second tier.

"I can't grow the football club if I can't get it promoted. And I'm starting to get very frustrated about that," he told BBC Sport.

"I want to be promoted. It's my biggest thing - the one thing I think needs to happen to the MK Dons."

MK Dons are currently 12th in League One, ten points adrift of the playoff places.
