Keeper aims to get his career back on track tonight
says he has no qualms about being thrown straight in for his Dons debut tonight after the goalkeeper only returned to full training yesterday.Ross Worner
The ex-Charlton stopper, who has been troubled by an ankle injury since signing for Wimbledon, will get a chance to show what he can do between the sticks against his old club tonight.
After my first week of training here I rolled my ankle on the Monday and it was not quite right when I came back after a week. We therefore decided to wait another week, but I trained yesterday and I can’t wait to get started. Once I get one game under my belt then I can build momentum up and get my timings right. I got thrown straight back into it after I had a back operation last season. When I have been a number two I also had to come in and take my opportunity. As a goalkeeper you get used to that; I will have to make sure that I keep 100 per cent concentration and do the right things.: “ Worner saidDons Player,Speaking to Rob Cornell on
pulled off an unbelievable save against Dartford and has kept two clean sheets, which he has not stopped reminding me about! He has told me that I have to fight to win the shirt so I can’t wait for tonight.”Ashley Bayes“
Worner featured nine times for the Addicks in 2010/11 after making his name as one of the best young goalkeepers around at Woking. However, the 23-year-old is determined to reignite his career after a bright start at his last club Aldershot was curtailed by injury.
“There are a few lads from Charlton that I have not seen for a long time and it will be nice to see a few familiar faces,” Worner added. “I have really enjoyed my time here so far, though the ankle injury has been annoying. I really want to kick-start my career now; I want to get a full season under my belt and then see what happens. From what I have seen in training so far and in matches I think we have a squad that can really push on next season.”
