Dons goalkeeper relishes busy period
Goalkeeper Ross Worner says he’s desperate to put things right against Mansfield tomorrow after having two weeks to mull over that disappointing defeat against Bristol Rovers.
Since joining Wimbledon in the summer, Ross has been an ever-present in the league this season and he is one professional footballer who is relishing the busy Christmas period coming up.
Speaking to Rob Cornell on Dons Player ahead of tomorrow’s Mansfield match, Ross said: “I want to get back out there desperately on Saturday. It would have been nice to have had a game quickly after Bristol Rovers. We have since had a long break and done a lot of training in the last two weeks. We have worked harder on a lot of things. Hopefully, we can put all that into practice and emerge as winners on Saturday.
“I missed the Coventry game and coming back for the Portsmouth match was a big one for me. We were not the best against Bristol and now we have to prepare right and do everything that the manager has told us on the training pitch.”
And Ross is certainly not one of those people in football who believes there should be a mid-season break.
“League 2 is a funny league and anything can happen,” he added. “If we can start out on a positive tomorrow and come out of Christmas with a good set of results then you never know what can happen. It is a difficult period over Christmas, but I really like it. Players have to do everything right in terms of preparation, but I’m looking forward to games over Christmas. We have Newport next week and that is one I will relish because my old assistant manager at Woking (Jimmy Dack) is involved there, but first we want to win on Saturday.”
