Max rises to new challenge after making his full debut

Young midfielder makes his mark at Wimbledon

30 September 2019

Max Sanders enjoyed meeting the physical test of his full league debut on Saturday and he said that Glyn Hodges gave him the confidence to make an impact.

The 20-year-old midfielder, who was handed his first Wimbledon start since arriving on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion, said: “I probably wanted to get on the ball a bit more in the first-half, but it was hard. In the second-half I managed to do that more and it helped the team. ‘Hodgey’ has been really good for me, just telling me to go out and do my normal stuff. He has given me the confidence to go out and play.

“Games like this, obviously it was my debut, show me how different it is in this league. It was end to end and so fast and physical. I really enjoyed it and I can’t wait to play some more games. I’ve only been here since early September, but I can tell that Woody brings a lot to the team. When he came on for the second-half he scored a goal and he always wanted the ball. He’s good on the ball and he’s a leader, so he’s a big plus for us.

“With the three goals we conceded, we can stop them, and they are just the little things that we need to sharpen up on. Those mistakes have cost us the game really and we’ve created more than enough chances away from home. We scored two here, which is hard to do. We can take a lot of positives from creating the chances and I think Mitch and Woody were great when they came on. They made an impact, so it was great to have them back out there.”
