MK Dons manager Karl Robinson is targeting one more win to guarantee a play-off place after a 1-1 draw at Preston on Saturday.
Robinson was frustrated at seeing his Dons dominate against Graham Westley's North End in the League One clash at Deepdale, but still only pick up a point after Australian Bailey Wright's last-gasp leveller.
The contest was set to the backdrop of Sir Tom Finney's 90th birthday celebrations at Preston, with video tributes played out on the Deepdale big screens, including messages from David Beckham and Sir Alex Ferguson - but it was Westley and not the MK Dons who had the last laugh.
"We've in budget terms, probably a third of their allowance, but we've competed and should have won the game in my view," said Robinson. "One of my reasons for conceding late goals is that we've not got a settled back four that at set-pieces do the same job every week.
"We constantly have to change it through injuries and suspensions every week and it shows because in the latter part of the game you have to rely on instinct and it's cost us.
"Now we've got to see what we can do because this is as bad as I've ever seen an injury crisis at the club and it's difficult to try and pick a team that's consistent."
