City loan midfielder talks about dream debut as he nets match-winning brace at MK Dons
Sky Blues loan star Chris Maguire said he could not have picked a better end to score at after he netted two stunning free kicks on his debut to help City to a 3-1 win over MK Dons at stadium:mk.
The Scottish international came off the bench to make a game-winning impact with two late set pieces infront of 7,000 travelling City fans just 24 hours after sealing a loan move from Sheffield Wednesday.
It was a day for the loanees as striker Chris Dagnall netted an equaliser midway through the second half after Shaun Williams put the home side ahead with a penalty late in the first half.
Maguire then grabed all the points for the Sky Blues with free kicks in the last five minutes to end City's run of consecutive league defeats and lift them back into the top half of the League One table.
He said: "I couldn't have picked a better end to score and I'm just delighted they went in but the most important thing was getting the three points and I'm really pleased we did that.
"There was a really big support here for us today as well so it was important we sent them away happy."
The 24-year-old added that he wanted to make the most of his loan spell with the Sky Blues that sees him remain with the club up to and including January 5th, 2014.
"It was great to just get on the pitch," he added. "It's been a while but it was good to get a run out and cap it off with two goals although the most important thing was that we won.
"The fans were brilliant and it was a great second half for us. Whatever was said at half time obviously worked because the lads worked really hard to get the three points."
