Maynard: Maintain winning feeling

17 December 2015

The Dons need to use the victory over Sheffield Wednesday as a ‘stepping stone’, according to goalscorer Nicky Maynard.

The 29-year-old netted his second goal of the season five minutes into the second half of Tuesday night’s clash at stadiummk  – a goal which proved to be the match winner in the Dons’ 2-1 victory.

The victory moved the men from MK1 out of the bottom three in the Sky Bet Championship and Maynard now wants the side to build on the triumph.

“It was a deserved three points,” Maynard told MK Dons PlayerHD. “We came into the game full of confidence after the (Ipswich Town) game. The lads put in a great performance and hopefully we can use this as a stepping stone to go on to bigger and better things.”

“I’m thankful I got enough another chance to prove what I can do and I’m glad I took it. Hopefully there’s more to come now.”

“In one of my first starts against Charlton I got through in a similar position and didn’t score. It’s been doing my head in ever since because I always expect myself to score when I’m one on one with the goalkeeper.

Maynard took his second-half strike well, beating the offside trap and controlling Samir Carruthers’ through-ball before composing himself and finishing into the bottom right corner – it was a finish the striker was delighted with.
