Despite scoring his 17th goal of the season against Crawley Town – Kieran Agard insists it is winning games that are at the forefront of his mind.
The striker displayed his determination and composure to score what would prove to be the winner against The Red Devils.
The win ensured Paul Tisdale’s side made it four consecutive league wins for the first time since 2015.
“As long as we’re winning games – I’ll be happy,” the striker told the media following the full-time whistle at Stadium MK. “I want the success for the team more than personally - if I’m contributing with goals – long may it continue.
“The lads have got together, and everyone, from the staff to the players, have dug in deep - there is a real buzz around the place!
“The team performance was fantastic. Crawley came here and played football and made it difficult – we’re delighted to have come away with the three points.”
Agard’s goal came in bizarre circumstances, with the assist coming from none other than goalkeeper Stuart Moore.
His goal kick was left by Crawley defender Daniel Bulham, Agard pounced and managed to poke past Morris before racing on and finding the crucial touch – moments before colliding with the post.
Recalling his goal Agard says scoring was the only thing on his mind.

“The post didn't come into my head - I was just looking to redirect it - I'm glad to see it go in.
“I was at full-stretch, I thought it was going wide so I threw myself at it and luckily I got enough on it to put it into the empty net.
“Fair play to Stu, he's put the ball up there and I've got on the end of it - I think he'll take that as well!”
Agard added, “I've always said I just want to take it game by game, helping the team as much as I can. If I score as many goals as I can, it will only be good for the team.
“I'll keep working hard to score, the team is now creating chances for me to score these goals. It was a long ball up field, but it had to be played for me to get on to it and anticipate it.”
