Jake Forster-Caskey has warned his Brighton & Hove Albion team-mates of the quality that Milton Keynes Dons possess ahead of Saturday’s match at the Amex.
The Albion midfielder made five appearances for the Dons during a one-month loan spell at stadium:mk, so is perfectly placed to assess the quality in Karl Robinson’s squad.
He said, “The manager [Karl Robinson] likes to play football and you can see that with the way he sets his teams out. He wants his teams to dominate possession and while I was there, we were dominating possession in every single game.
“I don’t think they’ll change when they play us. They’ll try to keep the ball and it will be a good game because both teams like to press and there could be a few goals as well.
“I really enjoyed my time at the club; the manager made me feel welcome and so did the boys. I went straight in and started every game and played every minute.
“For me it was the perfect loan move; I got some good minutes under my belt and thought I performed well.
“But now I’m back and my focus is on playing for Brighton.”

The 21-year-old has been delighted with Albion’s unbeaten start to the season and a club record 17-match unbeaten run could be achieved should Chris Hughton’s men avoid defeat against the Dons.
However, the midfielder insists the run has not even crossed the players’ minds in the build-up to the game.
“We’ve had a few draws now, but we’re still unbeaten and if we continue to play like we have been this season, then we’ll definitely be up there.
“I have not heard one person talk about the run in the dressing room. No one has even mentioned it.
“There a few of us who haven’t played many games, but when the team is playing well you can’t have too many complaints.
“You always back the boys and hope they do well. In training, you want to push for the shirt, but if they keep winning games, then there’s not too much you can do.
“But the gaffer has been good with me and it was just a case of being frustrated at not playing. I’m here now; I will train as hard as I can and take it from there.”
