Fish: I’d prefer not to be busy

8 February 2021

Andrew Fisher was once again impressive between the sticks for MK Dons as he helped Russell Martin’s side pick up a point.

The 22-year-old made a string of impressive saves as the Dons and Sunderland shared the spoils in an entertaining 2-2 draw.

Fisher was on hand in the dying seconds of the game to deny Aidan McGeady from close range – just one of a number of saves from the Dons keeper.

Despite his performance in the draw – Fisher admits he’d prefer to sacrifice personal glory in order to pick up three points.

“When you make the saves, you're happy with it - but I prefer not to have any shots,” Fisher told iFollow MK Dons following the full-time whistle. “I'm there to make the saves though - so that's what I try and do.

“If that shot goes in at the death I think it would be an undeserved defeat. I just chucked my body in the way and thankfully it was enough.

“We always respond after a defeat so we have to go again on Tuesday. We don't change for anyone – it's our way or no way so we'll go up to Rochdale focussed on getting three points.”

The opening goal of the game came just five minutes into the encounter as Charlie Wyke scored against the run of play to put Lee Johnson’s side ahead. Although Fisher was disappointed to see the Dons go behind – he was pleased with the reaction to going behind.

“It's the story of our season – conceding in the first 10 minutes. If we score first, we go on and dominate the game.

“It's upsetting to concede so early, but we stuck with it, the team spirit was high and we could get back to make to 2-1. The goal in the second half was disappointing to concede but we stuck in there to get a point.”
