MK Dons forward Kieran Agard insists that the squad are working hard to turn their dire form around as they look to avoid relegation to Sky Bet League Two.

The 28-year-old Newham born hotshot was on target for The Dons for the first time in 12 games on Saturday but his goal was not enough to help his side avoid a sixth consecutive defeat with opponents Charlton Athletic securing a 2-1 win.

After the match when speaking to The72, Agard remained upbeat about his side’s hopes of avoiding an unwanted relegation back to the fourth tier of English football.

“We are obviously disappointed but we have got to move on quickly and focus our attentions on Wednesday now, we’ve got to go out there and get the three points” the striker said.

“I would’ve traded my goal in for a win today but it was a well-worked goal from a set play and we have got to build on that.

“The dressing room are all rooting for each other, we’ve got the players to do well so it’s back to the training ground and we look forward to the games coming up.

“It’s about hard work now and taking our work on the training ground into the games.

The Dons boss Dan Micciche has backed Agard to hit the goal trail again following his barren run and the player was pleased to hear the support of his manager.

“That’s big motivation from the gaffer” the striker added. “I’m always confident that I’ll score a goal and I just need to keep getting in the positions.

MK Dons now face two fellow strugglers in Rochdale and Fleetwood Town and Agard knows just how important those matches could be.

“It’s a big opportunity for us” Agard confessed.

“We will go back to the training ground, work hard to take this into the game and get three points.

“We are working tirelessly and it’s not quite happened, but we are sure that it’s (Micciche’s first win) just round the corner and hopefully that’s Wednesday.”
