Josh Magennis displayed a wonderful show of finishing as Hull City returned to the top of the League One table following a comfortable victory at Milton Keynes Dons.
The Tigers had slipped down to fourth in recent weeks after two defeats across a three-match period, but have bounced back with two straight wins and taken advantage of previous leaders Peterborough’s recent blip to climb back to the summit.
Magennis, who missed last Saturday’s win over Burton due to international commitments, was clearly desperate to make up for lost time.
He got himself on the scoresheet twice in the opening 12 minutes, with two excellent finishes, either side of Stephen Walker’s equaliser for the hosts.

I've often slated Josh Magennis but today he has been outstanding. 2 brilliant finished and lead the line well. Not so much second half but might be getting tired after international duty. #hcafc #utt

2 quality finishes from Josh Magennis has @HullCity 2-1 up at half-time. Needs a header for the perfect hat-trick.
MK Dons in it though, they play nice stuff and look sharp up top (Walker especially) but they look to have a mistake in their passing at the back. #hcafc
