Dons boss salutes Millwall loanee after debut clean sheet

AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley hailed the performance of Jake Goodman after the Millwall loanee helped keep a clean sheet on his debut yesterday.

Goodman, 21, played 90 minutes for the Dons as they beat Wycombe Wanderers 1-0 in the second round of the FA Cup.

And Ardley said: "I thought Jake was immense. He won bundles in the air and at the end he had cramp and could barely jump.

"On one hand the game was always going to be ideal for him because it was going to be high-tempo and they were going to throw a lot of balls forward, but it was also brave to throw him in for such an important match.

"He should be proud of his debut."

Goodman was given permission by Lions boss Ian Holloway to play in the competition but Fred Onyedinma, who is at Wycombe until January, was not given the green light.

Millwall will be in tonight's draw for the third round.

    Clearly not quite ready for a full 90 mins in our first team but could play a part off the bench to get him ready for next season, whatever division we are in.

    Good to get these positive reports. Maybe Goodman is the answer at the back next season. Also seeing lots of good things about Nelson. Maybe the future is brighter than we think

    Was with my mate yesterday who is a Don's fan who said he was immense and so strong in the air. Got to say, after seeing Webster at the weekend and all season the man cannot win anything in the air.
    I have seen goodman for the U21's now on the live links on here and he looks like the best potential we have at the back along with Nelson. Lets get rid of all the s**t at the club that are on way to big contracts and bring through our own youth and develop the whole squad.
    No one would mind if Ollie tried our youngsters as fans want to see the success of home grown talent. Fans do not want to be a training ground for a premier league club for a player that wants nothing to do with us.
    Well done Goodman. Look forward to seeing you in the squad come January.

    I'm getting sick and tired of hearing about how good our youngsters are for god sake start playing them especially the defenders are you telling me they are not as good as the players that let us down time and time again this season and on Saturday were an absolute disgrace . Personally I would rather see Sid and jake , Fred , Alfie all getting vital experience and learning the game playing for us in football age should be irrelevant if your good enough .
