The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

AFC WIM­BLE­DON new boy Dar­ius Charles is de­ter­mined to do his old friend Kar­leigh Os­borne proud af­ter join­ing on loan from Bur­ton Al­bion.

Af­ter five years at Steve­nage, de­fender Charles, 28, joined Bur­ton this sea­son but failed to fea­ture.

Dons boss Neal Ard­ley has turned to Charles fol­low­ing an in­jury to Os­borne and a sus­pen­sion for fel­low de­fender Ryan Sweeney.

Charles said: “I’d spo­ken to Nigel Clough at Bur­ton and we felt I needed to get some first-team foot­ball.

“Kar­leigh is a great friend of mine. We’ve been play­ing foot­ball to­gether and been friends since the age of ten.

“He has some big shoes to fill, so hope­fully I can do him jus­tice!”
