Andrew Fisher was on loan at Northampton earlier this season.

The 21-year-old arrives from Ewood Park until the end of the season on transfer deadline day. With Lee Nicholls the established keeper in the side, and Stuart Moore his regular number two this season, Fisher hopes his loan spell, coming after he played at Northampton Town for the first half of the season, will help them up their game.

“I’m delighted,” Fisher said. “This is a massive club and with the way the manager wants to play, it’s something I really want to buy into.

“The goalkeepers that are here are really talented. It’s my job to come in and push them, and do what I can to help the team for the remainder of the season.

“I’d say my strengths are my shot-stopping and my distribution. I’m comfortable with the ball at my feet, playing out from the back, and I know that suits the way the team wants to play."

Dons' goalkeeper Coach Dean Thornton added: "Andrew is someone I've known about for a while. I have a good working relationship with Blackburn Rovers' goalkeeper coach and he holds him in high regard.

"He's a modern-day goalkeeper, who has command of his box, is a good shot-stopper but is also good with his feet. He fits in with our style of play and he will provide really good competition for Lee."
