MK Dons striker Kieran Agard described his team’s performance as “magnificent” as they ended a winless run with a big win over Cambridge.
Agard spoke after scoring two in the match, as MK Dons won 6-0, and the striker said that the team’s desperation to return to winning ways reflected a highly impressive team performance.
He said, “All the boys were desperate to get back to winning ways. I think today showed it – the lads were magnificent from back to front and we were on the ball today.”
The double means Agard added to his goalscoring tally for the season, and the striker praised the team for an attacking performance and managing to create the chances to put away.
He said, “I’ve scored quite a few so far this season but I’m happy to keep chipping in with them, and I couldn’t score without this team. We attack from the back and create so many chances.
“Its always good to go on the front foot. That’s what we aimed to do today and I think it showed.”
MK Dons found themselves 3-0 up inside the opening 12 minutes of the contest, and Agard said the lightning quick early start gave them the room to control a second half comeback attempt.
He said, “Its always nice to get early goals and we wanted to keep doing what we had done to go in front. We came out in the second half knowing they’d have a reaction, and we dealt with it.”
The match was the last of Rhys Healey’s loan spell, while speculation continues on the future of Chuks Aneke, and Agard said the players would like their fellow attackers to remain at the club.
He said, “They’re two great players and its great to play with them. We want them to stay. They are quality on and off the pitch and we’d like them to stay, but its not up to us. But we would like them to stay.”
