Marcus Forss said he’s thankful to team-mate Anthony Wordsworth for curtailing his goal celebrations at Southend on Saturday.
After netting his hat-trick at Roots Hall, Marcus said his first instinct was to celebrate with our supporters behind the goal, risking a repeat of the yellow card that contributed to his sending off against Bristol Rovers.
However, Woody’s intervention prevented lightning from striking twice, according to Marcus.
“He has looked after me and when I scored my third goal I almost went into the crowd again, but he pulled me back! The celebrations are something I do spontaneously, but he stopped me on Saturday thankfully. Anthony is a fantastic footballer and a fantastic person.”
The Dons host Portsmouth this Saturday, offering Marcus a chance to add to his hot streak since joining Wimbledon on loan.
“The fans are fantastic at this club and whenever we have a home game they are in full voice, added Marcus, who has scored seven goals in seven games for Wimbledon. “It’s like that 12th man on the pitch, it gives us that extra motivation. Wimbledon fans are very loud and I like playing at the stadium. I’d played here in pre-season for Brentford and the pitch is very nice, it’s a good place to play.
“I’ve enjoyed working with the coaching staff here. Ultimately, it’s making me a better player and in turn making the team better. I’ve loved working with the staff here.”
