The former Arsenal trainee has made three appearances for the Dons since joining the club last month and is starting to get used to Sky Bet League Two football.

Weston told the club's official website: "I was fortunate to get a start against Scunthorpe United and I found it really difficult, to be honest.

"It was a tough afternoon because I was up against Chris Iwelumo, he is a big lad and I am not the tallest for a centre-back.

"I found the general pace and the frantic nature of the game difficult because it was different to what I had been used to in previous years. I was a little bit nervous having been away from it for a few years.

"However, I really enjoyed Saturday's game. It was evident for everyone at the Fleetwood game how well we played from back to front as a team. Obviously, that came with the added bonus of keeping a clean sheet and I thoroughly enjoyed the game on Saturday.

"There are not too many comparisons to what you face in League Two, even though the Scottish First Division was quite frenetic.

"English football is changing season by season now and the lower leagues are getting stronger. You have to get used to the pace and physicality and there are some very good players in League Two now."

he uber commercialisation of the 90s has led to the point where this overly familar, try hard, jolly hockey sticks type fronts up a major football match on a weekly basis. Unlike the great presenters of yesteryear, I doubt he would even recognise the scent of Brut.

onfirmed. Nick Miller is a douche bag. Lazy, incoherent rant is what this article should be titled. And for the editor to have the temerity to pass this as acceptable writing is shocking. Ah well, anything for clicks right? You got mine. Well done. Your mother must be proud.
