AN IMPRESSIVE home debut for George Porter has already persuaded the on-loan player that his move to the Dons is perfect for him.
Although the plan is to impress parent club Burnley during his season-long loan at Kingsmeadow, the 21-year-old winger is already aware that he is much happier back down south.
“I'm from south east London, so it's good to be back home and I would like to come back down to London,” Porter told the Chronicle .
“It's a bit different up in Manchester, especially when you're not playing and it's been really hard, especially because I've been on my own as well.
“The first three games I've played, I've really enjoyed it and that can only get better. I think we'll push on this year and do really well.”
Porter added: “This feels like the right club for me at the moment. The boss has brought in some really good players – especially senior players in the back line, and that's a good solid base for us. Hopefully we can became a great attacking force as well.
“I think we'll always set out to go and attack teams and try to win games, even away from home.
“It's great to be playing regularly. The gaffer said 'you've got the shirt now, it's up to you not to lose it.' I faded a bit today, but I think that's just early season rustiness. It was hard to get through three games in a week, but you'll definitely see even more of me when I get fitter.”
Porter put in an eye-catching first-half performance against Wycombe, with his battle against Chairboys left back Charles Dunne a thrilling feature of the game.
“I like to get at defenders naturally, but the gaffer was in my ear-hole telling me to get at the left back, show him my pace early on and try to scare him,” Porter said.
“He was a lot stronger than me, but I carried on trying to get at him and it worked well at times. I thought the game went really well too – especially the way we attacked in the first half.
“We got a lot of opportunities and we've got some good strikers in this team. Hopefully, if I can deliver the ball to them, we'll score a lot of goals this year.”
