Gannon upset by Dons 'arrogance'

Stockport boss Jim Gannon accused MK Dons of arrogance and gamesmanship after the 3-2 win at Edgeley Park which ensured promotion for Paul Ince's team.

The game ended in bad feeling between the two sides and Ince was critical of the Edgeley Park pitch.

But Gannon told BBC Radio Manchester: "I was particularly unhappy with their whole attitude to the game.

"It wasn't just their tactics but their arrogance and the snide time wasting and gamesmanship that did it."

Having already qualified for the League Two play-offs, Stockport could yet have to face Ince's men again next season. But it clearly would not be a fixture that Gannon will be looking forward to.

"As a professional, out of respect, I say well done to them," said Gannon. "But, as far as personal reasons go, I'd rather not work with people like that.

"We don't encourage that. We have the best disciplinary record, we've got the best form over the last four months and I'm very proud of what we're achieving at this club."

Until Saturday's defeat, Gannon's Hatters were the in-form team in League Two, having picked up 28 points out of a possible 30 from their previous 10 games.
