MK Dons boss Karl Robinson claimed "you probably won't see three better goals in one game this season" after his side were undone by a hat-trick of stunning strikes in the 3-1 defeat to Plymouth.

Kari Arnason, Chris Clark and Onismor Bhasera - who also netted an own goal - ended the Dons' three-match winning run at stadium:mk and saw them climb to 13th in League One.

Robinson said: "The first one was an unbelievable strike, the second one was possibly the goal of the season in all four leagues and the third one was a very well-worked one where a guy facing away from the goal turns and puts it in the top corner."

He added: "You work on your defence all week and you do the right things, but you've got to hold your hands up when goals go in like that.

"And you've got to give them credit, they were fantastic finishes.

"But for me, I'm extremely disappointed that we didn't create enough chances - if you don't shoot you don't win football matches."

Plymouth boss Peter Reid, who was forced to watch the game from the stands, was beaming after an impressive display from his side.

He said: "That's as good as we've played - we were fantastic and thoroughly deserved to win the game. We had a chat at half-time and I said 'just keep passing the ball, and if you do that you'll win the game.'

"I can't remember Dave Button making many saves, which is a credit to the defenders - but you defend as a team and we defended really well.

"For the first goal, I was in the stand shouting 'pass it' - mind you I shouted 'pass it' for all three goals so thank goodness I'm in the stand and they're not listening to me! I'm better up there, I think."
