"As a goalkeeper you have to be patient, everyone keeps telling me that anyway!" he told Inside United. "It can be difficult at times because once you've had a taste of things all you want to do is play.
"Ideally I would have liked to have gone out on loan to get some more experience, but the situation with Ben [Foster] being injured has given me a chance with the first team which is fantastic.
"It's a pleasure to be working with the first team and I'm just focused on keeping my head down and working hard."
The 21 year-old added: "We'll just have to see what comes up for me this season - hopefully I might get an opportunity somewhere along the line."
