Martin: It's onwards and upwards for MK Dons

Video: QPR 2-4 MK Dons

Goalkeeper David Martin believes the future is bright for MK Dons after an FA Cup triumph at QPR that will live long in the memory.

Making their first appearance in the fourth round, the npower League One side bossed the Premier League hosts and ran out 4-2 victors.

A club record travelling support of 3,155 were at Loftus Road to witness the famous win - the biggest in the club's short history.

"It is great to be at a club like this," Martin told Press Association Sport. "Obviously it is only 10 years old so all the fans are pure. They've not experienced moments like this before.

"It is great to come to a place like Loftus Road and do really well. Hopefully we have made some lifelong fans.

"We are making history. The AFC Wimbledon game was by far the biggest game for me. It was like my FA Cup final.Anything that happens now would be a bonus.

"It is great to be a part of this team at the moment. The dressing room is great - all the lads get on.

"Hopefully it is onwards and upwards for MK Dons."

Armand Traore's own goal put Karl Robinson's side ahead after just four minutes and, after weathering a QPR storm, they went further ahead Ryan Lowe just before half-time.

Ryan Harley and Darren Potter scored shortly after the restart to put the Dons 4-0 up, before Jay Bothroyd and Fabio scored late consolation goals.

"What we did to QPR is what teams do to us at MK, where they sit back and go on the counter-attack," Martin said.

"I thought we did that well and everything fell for us and when it did we put it in the back of the net.

"The first 30 minutes obviously they were the better team and we just had to ride out the storm.

"We did that and it is a shame we conceded two goals towards the end, but I think we were being a bit greedy coming to QPR, a Premier League club, and grumble about conceding two goals when you've scored four yourself.

"I am reasonably happy with my day's work. No 'keeper likes to concede goals, but it is one to try and enjoy."

MK Dons chairman Pete Winkleman is hoping to get Liverpool in this afternoon's fifth-round draw - something Martin would also welcome.

The 26-year-old was part of the first Dons squad before going on to join then-European champions Liverpool, returning to stadium:mk in 2010.

"I would like to go back there," Martin said. "It would be great to play at Anfield.

"You never know what is going to happen in the next round and I can't wait."

Martin and his team-mates return to League One action again on Tuesday with a trip to Yeovil.

QPR also return to action that night, albeit against far more glamorous opponents.

Reigning Premier League champions Manchester City are the visitors at Loftus Road and manager Harry Redknapp expects much better from his side.

"We've been going okay," he said. "We were five games unbeaten before, but we just need to strengthen. But we all know that.

"We've improved beyond all recognition in recent weeks.

"We've got to pick ourselves up now. I'll bring the lads back in who didn't play today for what is going to be a tough week ahead with Man City on Tuesday night and Norwich on Saturday."
