Abbott: Team should have scored
Manager Greg Abbott felt Carlisle did not make the most of the chances they created at stadium:mk after seeing his side lose 2-0 to MK Dons.
Luke Chadwick's first-half curler and Ryan Lowe's late tap-in won it for the hosts.
"We've won twice here in my time as manager but we were second best and that's upsetting for me and the fans and everybody takes a big reality check," said Abbott.
"They looked like they were sharper around the tackle, sharper with their passing, a little bit more incisive up front and they looked like they wanted to score more than us. We had our half-chances through the game but you have to put them in to give yourself a chance of winning at places like this.
"Adam Collin made a mistake for the first goal and when you make mistakes like that at places like this it takes some coming back from. Adam's weakness is with the ball on the deck and he's working hard to make that better - and it has to get better.
"There was some honesty there second half, the lads rolled their sleeves up and tried to have a go and get something back. Danny Cadamarteri put in a tremendous shift but we need goals from him."
