Paul Ince blasts section of MK Dons supporters

Ince's side lie 12 points adrift of a play-off place

MK Dons boss Paul Ince has slammed a section of their supporters after the side's 0-0 draw with Oldham.

The side were booed from the field by a small section of the crowd, which Ince said had affected the players.

"I won't generalise all the fans in this, but you have got a section that boo after the game," Ince told BBC Three Counties Radio.

"I think it might just be 15 or 20 of them, but I just don't want those people here."

The goalless draw at Stadium MK on Tuesday night effectively ended the side's hopes of a League One play-off spot.

Ince added: "At the end of the day they have got to show appreciation. We had a tough game at Norwich and I have got 14 fit players, two kids, and a goalkeeper.

"This is where we are this season, we are out on our feet. If they are going to come here, come and support.

"If we had been beaten 3-0 by Oldham, then fair enough, we would have deserved it," the former Manchester United midfielder continued.

"It's a joint effort and that's why we keep saying they can be the 12th man. Sometimes they have to recognise when the lads are tired and they need pushing and urging and they need more energy.

"In the second-half most of the crowd did that, but the players are disappointed with the reaction of some of the fans."
