Derek Adams admits the Shrimps can have no complaints following Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup Round Three defeat at the hands of MK Dons at Stadium MK.
Warren O’Hora fired the hosts ahead through a first time volley on 18 minutes before substitute Matthew Dennis wrapped up the victory six minutes into the second half.
Speaking after the game, the gaffer said the Dons were the better team on the night.
“We have no complaints, we were beaten by a far better team,” he said.
“We made a number of errors throughout the night, and that’s the nature of the game, we weren’t good enough on the ball, we weren’t good enough out of possession either.
“MK Dons, the rotation all over the pitch, caused us problems, they’re a far better side than us.
“You could see how well MK Dons played tonight, they passed the ball well, they ran hard, they got the ball back really well.
“I’d just like to apologise to our supporters tonight, we’ve come up against a better team than us tonight who were quicker on the ball, they moved it better, their understanding of the game was better than us tonight."
Adams made a number of attacking substitutions on the night in an attempt to get back in the game
Despite appearances off the bench for the likes of Dylan Connolly, Adam Mayor and Cole Stockton, the quality of Liam Manning’s men shone through.
Adams continued: “Tonight we made substitutions, we tried to change things in a tactical way to try and help, but over the night, they just had far better players than us on the ball and without the ball as well.
“MK Dons are a team that’ve got a lot of talented players, they’ll certainly finish very well this season because at home, they’re excellent on the ball.
“They’re a fantastic side to watch, any manager or coach would love to watch them, just unfortunate for my players tonight we didn’t make a good account of ourselves, and that sometimes happens.
“It is a different scenario when you are at home, we have gone away from home and won at the likes of Rotherham and Forest Green, but it was difficult tonight.
“I think MK Dons are the best footballing side we’ve played so far this season.
“We have played against a lot of good sides, but tonight, I thought the way they rotated, the way they passed the ball was very strong, I’m sure they’ll do very well.”
