Kieran praises away support

Agard reacts after bagging a brace at The Valley...

20 November 2017

Kieran Agard praised the impact of the travelling away fans following Saturday's draw with Charlton Athletic.

The striker came off the bench to bag his first two goals of the season and earn Robbie Neilson’s side a share of the points at The Valley on Saturday afternoon.

With over 600 MK Dons fans in attendance, the 28-year-old had high praise for those who made the journey to the capital, “The fans were amazing today.”

He added: “They always spur us on and give us that extra push. They were here with us today and we’re so happy that we got a point for them.”

Agard’s 63rd-minute header proved to be a pivotal turning point in the game and also provided the striker with his first goal of the season - a drought he’s worked hard on behind-the-scenes to end.

“As a striker, you go through these periods but you’ve got to keep working hard on the training pitch - I’ve got to thank the boys and the staff for helping me.

“I’m always doing extra training with the other strikers, which could get annoying, but I’m always out there trying to improve – today it paid off.”

The draw extends Robbie Neilson’s unbeaten run to four games in all competitions leaving MK Dons just five points off the play-off places, a result that Agard feels was merited.

“I’m buzzing that we got the point in the end. It didn’t look like we would get it but the boys were fantastic. 

“We kept putting the pressure on and came away with a point – which I think was deserved.

“We showed hunger and great team spirit and that will only do us good moving forwards. It’s fantastic to see the work we are putting in is being rewarded.”
