The former England U21 stopper penned a six-month deal with the Dons on Monday after being released by Sheffield Wednesday.

Weaver is keen to get some game-time under his belt but the 34-year-old knows he will have to work hard for any opportunities that come his way.

Weaver said: "I want to play but I'm sure Jamie will have something to say about that.

"He's been the number one here for quite some time and he's obviously a very able keeper. I think he played just about every game last year.

"I'm under no illusions. I don't feel as though I'm going to walk straight into the team.

"All I can do is my best in training. If and when I get an opportunity, it's up to me to take it."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
