Kieran Agard double sets up MK Dons to see off Swindon
Robbie Neilson's MK Dons picked up their first win in three Sky Bet League One games to see out 2016 on a high after beating fellow strugglers Swindon 3-2 at Stadium:MK.
The Dons were ahead with only nine minutes gone, Kieran Agard nodding home a loose ball after Nicky Maynard's stunning strike crashed off the crossbar.
And it was to get better for Dons, a second goal coming after 26 minutes when a defensive mix-up saw the ball fall kindly to Chuks Aneke. He picked out Agard who made no mistake in doubling his tally from close range.
Swindon pulled a goal back nine minutes later after a deep cross into the box found Luke Norris who squeezed the ball in.
But Samir Carruthers' neat through-ball saw Maynard extend the advantage once more, beating the offside trap to slot home his 100th career goal.
Swindon never gave up, setting up a nervy finale as Raphael Rossi Branco headed home with 25 minutes remaining, only to fall short and suffer a third defeat in four league outings.
