Take a sneak peek at this weekend’s Amber Rambler and the player feature with U’s number 1 Dimitar Mitov.
The Amber Rambler will be available to buy around the ground, from the CFU Van, and in the club shop for just £3. Tickets for tomorrow’s fixture are still available online here, and will also be available in the ticket office on match day until kick off at 3:00pm.
The Bulgarian has continued where he left off last season, to take a firm grip on the number one shirt at the Abbey during the first half of the 2019/20 campaign. Mitov highlights both the healthy competition from fellow shot stopper Callum Burton on a daily basis and the guidance of United Goalkeeper Coach Mark Bunn as the key to maintaining high standards.
He said: “It’s been a massive 12 months for me personally. The main thing now is I’m playing a lot of games, I’m in the team every week. I feel I’ve been doing well, and I want to stay focussed on keeping my standards high.
“You have to work hard every day to do that though because we also have Cal (Callum Burton) who pushes me every day in training, and I try to do the same for him. It’s a good competition between us both, and it gives you a feeling of not being able to take your foot off the accelerator.
“We have a brilliant coach in Bunny (Mark Bunn), who makes sure that we push hard to make improvements every day.
“Bunny and Kevin Pilkington are both completely different coaches, but that’s been a great thing for me because I’ve been able to learn different things from both those people. Bunny has been excellent and has brought his Premier League and high Championship playing experience to the group, and the training which he found worked well for him. I’ve really been enjoying working with him.”
