Defender interviewed ahead of Bury game tomorrow
Chris Robertson is delighted with the way he has settled in at AFC Wimbledon and the centre-back is relishing his partnership at the back with Paul Robinson.
Chris had a slow start to his Dons career with the management team wanting to work on his fitness and his fiancée also gave birth to a baby girl last month.
However, the former Ross County defender has now played in five of the last six games in all competitions for AFC Wimbledon and he is loving life at his new club.
Speaking during an interview for Dons Player ahead of tomorrow’s game against Bury, Robertson said: “It was a bit of a shaky start here for me with the arrival of my daughter, but it’s working out quite well just now. I am getting a run of games and I’m not feeling too tired at the moment, which is good. I am really enjoying my time here. It is a superb club; all the lads are great and the management staff are fantastic as well. I am enjoying it and hopefully that will continue.
“Paul Robinson has had a great career and to follow in his footsteps would be amazing. He is very professional, I like the way he works, and how he plays on the pitch too. Hopefully, I can be an example to others, just like him.”
Chris is expecting a much tougher game against Bury tomorrow after the cup win in midweek against the same opponents. But looking further ahead, he believes the Dons have a talented enough squad to cope with a packed schedule of games.
“It could be a fresh start for them (after manager David Flitcroft’s departure) and they will see it as a disappointing result the other night,” said Robertson. “We know it’s going to be a totally different game and we need to be ready for it. It’s not going to be easy and we want to work together to get a result.
“We have so many players competing for places and that’s what you want in a squad. To do well and to keep moving forward, you want all those younger players champing at the bit. It keeps you on your toes. Will Nightingale is a great young defender, I’ve played with him a few times and we’ve worked together well.
“It’s a busy spell we have coming up, but if we can stay in and around the mix we will have a great chance of staying at the right end of the table.”
