MK Dons extended their unbeaten league run to eight matches after drawing 3-3 at home to Fleetwood Town on Tuesday night.
Midfielder Scott Twine scored a hat-trick for Liam Manning’s side, with two fine strikes rounded off by a sublime free-kick that went in via the crossbar.
The visitors, who occupy 20th place, led twice in the first half through Ged Garner.
But Twine’s third goal of the night put the Dons ahead until Daniel Batty equalised for Fleetwood in the 88th minute.
Twine’s first career hat-trick saw him awarded man of the match on a night where he completed 24 of his 31 attempted passes, with three of those being key passes.
The 22-year-old spent the first half of last season on loan at Newport County before being recalled by Swindon Town in January. Despite his time at Rodney Parade being cut short, his performances saw him named their Young Player of the Season.
Twine turned down a new deal with Swindon before moving to Stadium MK in the summer.
He has filled the void of the departed Scott Fraser, who signed for Ipswich Town.
Fans raved about his display against Fleetwood, while others were satisfied with the point.
Scott Twine is good at football

We didn’t play well enough second half but still a decent point, Fleetwood were a lot better than I though they were. Scott Twine didn’t deserve to draw we’re lucky to have him. Onto Saturday ⚪️⚫️
