Dons charm merchant targeted by officials

One time Glazier Clinton Morrison has gone to MK Dons on a one month loan meaning we will face him again on Tuesday evening.  Having been feted by Sky TV as the hero of the hour after he scored the equaliser for the Owls at The Valley, one would have thought that his future with Wednesday was secure.  However, apparently the charm merchant has fallen out with Gary Megson.

Now it appears that the popular player is being unfairly targeted by officials or so Dons supremo Karl Robinson would have it.   Apparently when Morrison was brought on an assistant referee was heard to say, 'here he is, watch all the fouls he's going to give away.'

According to Robinson, 'Clinton didn't get one free kick, not one, but had three or four against him.  It speaks volumes.'   Well, it does.   One interpretation is that Morrison is a vigorous player who commits more fouls than he is fouled against.

Nevertheless, he does have any eye for goal and the Bury keeper had to tip a shot from him past the post.

Not only is the Dons supremo furious with the officials after the 0-0 draw at Bury, he is also angry with defender Gary MacKenzie after the player was sent off for what appeared to be a head butt at Huddersfield last weekend.  'It's a disgrace what he did, he knows that,' fulminated the Dons boss.  MacKenzie will miss three matches. 

One might think that a setting like Milton Keynes would induce a certain somnolence in the manager, but this is evidently not the case.
