Striker reflects on Saturday's draw...

Kieran Agard believes there are plenty of positives from Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park last Saturday.

After dominating the early stages of the encounter the Dons fell behind to Hakeeb Adelakun’s 27th-minute strike.

After a handful of missed chances, Robbie Neilson’s side eventually drew level with just three minutes left in the first-half.

The forward played a clever one-two with Osman Sow before converting with his left from just inside the box.

The lead lasted less than a minute as down the other end of the pitch Kevin van Veen converted from close range after he fouled Scott Golbroune inside the box. The referee waved play on and the Dutchman restored the Iron’s lead.

There was yet more drama to come in the opening 45-minutes as Neal Bishop was shown a red card for his elbow on Chuks Aneke seconds before the half-time whistle.

Dons equalised with just under half an hour to be played as Chuks Aneke converted from Ed Upson’s free-kick.

Speaking after the final whistle, Agard said MK Dons are moving in the right direction and results will eventually turn.

“The first-half, we were excellent and we carried that into the second-half too. Everyone worked really hard today and we have been doing that all week – hopefully, we can build upon this result.

“I think Scunthorpe will be happier with the result than we are. We worked our socks off but that winning goal just didn’t come.

Agard concluded, “It’s been two really good performances and we’re looking to build on from that now and get some wins under our belt because at the end of the day although we got a  point ideally we want three.”
