Bristol City lead 2-0 against MK Dons thanks to Kieran Agard's brace.

Two goals from Kieran Agard have given unbeaten Bristol City a comfortable lead against second-place MK Dons in a game where the visitors have had opportunities to score.

The Robins took the lead inside four minutes when Mark Little nodded the ball into the path of Kieran Agard and the former Rotherham United forward netted his fourth goal in as many games.

It could have been a different story when Benik Afobe's shot needed a strong save from Frank Fielding to keep the visitors out during a dramatic opening to the game.

Karl Robinson's side showed enterprise as they looked to get back on terms, but both Joe Bryan and Dean Bowditch were frustrated in their efforts.

Fielding needed to be alert as MK Dons continued to fire shots at goal, with Bowditch and Ben Reeves having strikes saved by the City number one.

Steve Cotterill's men were then awarded a penalty when Agard was bundled over in the box by Kyle McFadzean and the Robins' new signing dusted himself down before firing his penalty past David Martin.
