FOREST GREEN manager Mark Cooper has admitted he does not expect his side to  finish in the automatic promotion places.

Rovers, who are in the play-off pack fell to a 2-1 home defeat to high-flying MK Dons this afternoon as  Kieran Agard’s 21st goal of the season and Russell Martin’s goal with three minutes to go pushed the Dons up to second after George Williams had earlier pulled Rovers level.

“We could win the final six games, but I think automatics are too much,” admitted Cooper.

“We just have to concentrate on winning as many games as we can and look forward to Crawley on Saturday, today has gone – we probably deserved a point, but we didn’t get it.

“We played a good team, who beat us without playing well.”
