John Coleman has heaped praise on Marek Rodak – and the modest on-loan Fulham keeper admits it’s nice to hear compliments.

The 20-year-old linked up with the Reds in January and admitted he had a shaky start in the 3-0 loss to Cheltenham.

However he has proved a match winner since then, gaining plaudits for Saturday’s show at Plymouth where he pulled off a string of impressive saves to make sure Stanley won 1-0 and extend their unbeaten run to 12 games.

“It’s nice to hear people saying nice things about me but it’s my job,” said the 20-year-old, who has just returned from international duty with Slovakia Under 21s.

“I do feel I am gaining in confidence with every game I play here. Since I have been here, I have improved a lot.

“I am coming for more crosses and have worked on my kicking. I have to make decisions and I have to decide whether to come for the ball or not and, being in league football, means it’s important.

“I am here to develop and the Fulham coaches are keeping an eye on me and ring me after every game.”

Rodak admitted his show in the win over second placed Plymouth was probably his best so far.

“It did get busy towards the end of the match and there was some pressure but I just did what I needed to do to make sure we got the win.

“When I first came in January my job was to stop us getting relegated and to help to make sure we stayed up.

“With 12 games unbeaten, we have moved up the table and it’s now about trying to get as close to the play-offs as we can and see what we can do.”
