AFC Wimbledon’s Kelle Roos loves a “bit of a scrap” and so Tuesday night’s win over Carlisle United played right into the keeper’s safe hands, writes Tim Ashton.

Roos, who has signed on loan until the end of the season, has feature three times for the Dons, and he can boast a 100 per cent success rate.

However, the win over United was all the sweeter because of the clean sheet.

The Dutchman said: “In my previous games we have played well and did not deserve to concede a goal, so it is nice to get the first clean sheet and hopefully there will be many more.

“I like to be involved in the game, when the pressure is on I really enjoy soaking that up and taking the pressure off the guys on the pitch.

“Coming out for the crosses, fighting my battles and having a little scrap with the striker - that’s what the game is about and I like that a lot.”

He added: “But it was a tough game – in the first half we struggled, and you cannot always play the game you want.

“We like to play pretty, but sometimes you have to fight and win, and I am buzzing to get the three points.”

Roos’ loan move from Derby County has seen James Shea drop to the bench, but the 23-year-old says there are no hard feelings.

“I’ve settled in well, I could not have asked for more from the players or staff,” Roos said.

“They came to my hotel to make me feel at home, and the next day I met the lads and straight away it was a lot of fun.

“Everyone from the staff, the players and the other keepers have been great.”
