Charlton manager Karl Robinson insists a frosty reception from AFC Wimbledon fans won’t bother him at the Valley on Saturday.

Robinson is hated by Wimbledon fans because of his close ties to MK Dons, a club he managed for six years.

MK Dons resulted from Wimbledon FC’s relocation from south London in September 2003.

And AFC Wimbledon were formed by supporters in direct response to the move and MK Dons are widely loathed by Kingsmeadow fans.

Discussing AFC Wimbledon’s visit to SE7 on Saturday, Robinson said: “Most fans try and pack out our end because we’re one of the biggest clubs in the league. It’s not because of me.

“If they want to sing about me, that's their prerogative. The fact I said things in the past about the club I work for, I’m not going to take them back.

“So it [the bad reception from fans] won’t bother me.”

AFC Wimbledon’s rivalry with Robinson took a turn for the worse last season when the Liverpudlian took his Charlton side to Kingsmeadow in February.

A 1-1 draw was overshadowed by Robinson being confronted by an AFC Wimbledon employee, who said something “appalling” to the former MK Dons chief.

And Robinson has no regrets about how he acted during his tenure at Stadium MK.

He said: “Listen, I was there for nine years [as an assistant and manager]. I think everyone will always look at that. And there will be people at AFC Wimbledon who obviously don't like MK Dons.

“But that’s never been for me to get involved in. I was very passionate at the clubs I’ve worked for. I’m a believer in the identity of them as well. If I don't live and breathe the clubs I work for then I become half the person I want to be and the club to be.

“So if my passion got in the way of anything, it was never meant to offend anybody.

“One or two things that happened at their place were not right, as you well know. It should never happen within a football stadium or football pitch.

“But everybody, internally, I’ve got tremendous respect for. They've got one of the best managers in the league - what Neal [Ardley] has achieved at the football club is remarkable.

“His staff are very good and his team are honest and hard working with some very good players. I have respect for everyone in the game of football. But we all have rivals and I suppose I’m theirs.”
