David Fitzpatrick may have scored his first ever goal in AFC Wimbledon senior colours, but it failed to put a smile on the midfielder's face.

The 20-year-old scored the opening goal against Yeovil Town, only to see the League Two struggler come back twice to leave the Cherry Red Records stadium with all three points.

Fitzpatrick, in for the injured Dannie Bulman, was making his first start after three substitution appearances, and he got off to the best possible start with the first goal on nine minutes.

And he had shown his promise in his last outing off the bench when he set up Andy Barcham for his goal in the win at Notts County.

He said: "To get among the goals is great personally. It’s surreal scoring the first goal, especially in my full debut, and it’s just a shame we couldn’t get the result, but it’s something to build on I suppose.

“The more you play, the better you feel. You feel more familiar with everything, so I feel like every time I get minutes on the pitch, I’m getting better and I’m improving."

He added: "I want to push myself to get as many starts, as many appearances as I can. I’ve got my personal goals and, if that helps the team as well, then that’s great.”

The Dons held their first lead for just three minutes before Jack Compton equalised with a cool finish from the edge of the box.

Tom Elliott restored the hosts' lead again in the first half, this time for six minutes, until Compton struck again.

In the second half, Callum Kennedy gave away a penalty just after the hour, which Compton converted for his hat-trick.

Fitzpatrick said: “It’s a team thing. There were, obviously, a few mistakes that led to the goals, but that doesn’t normally happen.

"We’ve been on such a good run recently, so it’s surprising, but we’ve just got to bounce back next week against Bristol Rovers and, hopefully, get a win.”

He added: “We take every game as it comes and the gaffer drills that into us.”

Meanwhile, the Dons came up from diving into the transfer market with two new names – one on a permanent deal, and the other on loan.

Dutch goalkeeper Kelle Roos has joined from Derby County until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old former PSV Eindhoven player made five appearances for the Rams last season, and has already spent time at Rotherham on loan this season.

“We wanted a goalkeeper with a lot of presence and Kelle will give us that,” Ardley said.

The Dons have also signed free agent Connor Smith following his release by Premier League Watford. The 24-year-old midfielder made his breakthrough in football in Sky's programme Football’s Next Star.

“On another day, it could’ve been a completely different result, so we’re going to stay positive.”
