Maynard keen to kick on

1 January 2017

Nicky Maynard hopes to kick on after grabbing his long-awaited 100th career goal.

Maynard found the net for the first time this season in MK Dons’ 3-2 victory over Swindon Town – a finish which saw him hit the century mark and also earn an important three points for his side.

“It has been a frustrating time but I’ve kept belief in myself and whenever I’ve been out there, I’ve believed I was going to score,” Maynard told MK Dons PlayerHD. “Thankfully, I’ve got number 100 and hopefully there’s many more.

“I’ve got the goal now and hopefully this is the start of my season – I don’t want to be going another 19 games without another goal!”

“If I’m not scoring, I have to do something else for the team. The minimum requirement is to work your socks off and as long as I’m doing that, my chances will come but it’s down to me to take them.

“I think my performances have been good. I’ve kept plugging away but I’ve not had the rub of the green. I’ve never let it affect me – it affected others and probably played on their minds more than it did mine.
