Goalkeeper has a bright future says Fuller

is growing in confidence as Wimbledon’s number one and will have a big future in the game.Ross Wornerbelieves that Barry Fuller 

Though the Dons conceded a last-gasp goal at Cheltenham that condemned them to a cruel defeat, Worner again impressed between the sticks, particularly with one excellent second-half save to deny Jermaine McGlashan.

And experienced head Fuller says that the former Aldershot stopper is only going to get better after his first nine league matches for Wimbledon.

, the right-back said: “Ross is a goalkeeper who has a big future ahead of him. As a back-four it is great to have him behind you because of the way that he claims crosses. He is so confident and he was brilliant today (defeat at Cheltenham). It was such a shame for Ross and the team that we did not keep a clean sheet away from home, but it has happened now.Dons PlayerSpeaking to Rob Cornell on

“We have told ourselves all season that we have to bounce back from defeats and so far we have managed to do that. We have two home games now, starting with Northampton, and they are both winnable. We want to come back from this and get back on track again.”

Fuller added that there were positives to take from Wimbledon’s resilient away performance for most of the match.

  “Cheltenham were very direct compared to last season when they were a footballing side,” he said. “They have changed the way they play and were more direct, but we stood up to that until the very last hurdle. The boys in there were so devastated because we may not defend as a team better all season than that. It was a kick in the teeth for us at the end, but we have to roll our sleeves up in training now and prepare well for Northampton.”
