MK DONS moved up to second in the table in League One after a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Notts County and boss Karl Robinson has confirmed he wants to extend

Clinton Morrison’s loan deal at stadium:mk.

Angelo Balanta got the ball rolling in the 11th minute before late efforts from Morrison (82) and Daniel Powell (83) secured the points.

Morrison, on loan from Sheffield Wednesday, is due to stay with the Dons until the end of October.

Robinson said: “Clinton a great fella, I really like him. People said that I would have problems with him - I’ve had arguments with him, I tell him what I think and respect him and I’ll always be there for him 100 per cent.

“But if he keeps putting in performances like that he’s going to keep the crowd, me and the rest of the players very happy. I would love to keep him but you’ve got to respect the fact that he’s come from a massive club and been at the highest level, so you can imagine the difficulties of getting him to come and play for the likes of us.
