Batty: It was a special feeling to get that goal

Midfielder Dan Batty is over the moon after coming off the bench to score late on to secure a point for Fleetwood Town in their 3-3 draw against Milton Keynes Dons.

Batty, who replaced Harrison Biggins late on in the game, added on to Ged Garner’s first-half brace as the side cancelled out Scott Twine’s hat-trick for the Dons at Stadium MK.

Here’s what Dan had to say after the game:

On his goal…

“It’s been nice, a long-awaited feeling actually. I was thinking ‘don’t hit it over!’ It just lit up for me, I wanted to keep it low and strike it as hard as I could because there were a few bodies in there, so it was nice to get a goal.”

“It was a six-goal thriller- it was end-to-end from the start and you could see that we didn’t have much possession tonight but the goals were coming our way.

“We know we’ve got a good group of lads, we all want to work hard for each other and that’s the main thing, that we’ve got a good changing room and we all work for each other.”

On the game…

“We’ve done it for a few weeks now, gone down and brought it back and then gone down again, so we’ve had to dig really deep tonight again to get the result that we have.

“We’re waiting for a good run of form with wins hopefully that comes, but like you said we’re getting in the changing room and we’re happy with what we’ve done and we’ve had quite a few away games now and we’ve got results so we just need to dig on at home as well.”

“To come here and get three goals is something else as well, and we’re happy with the result we got. It’s exciting to watch, end-to-end all the time, a few goals here and there and you’re just excited and when you come on you carry that on with you, so yeah it’s good.”
