“The way he’s played, he’s played very well, that’s two clean sheets for him already.

“As it stands he is (the number one) but that’s always up for grabs. But the way he’s playing I’m very happy.

 “We made a lot of good decisions tonight, so it’s a really nice place for us to build from.

“I think it’s a positive result. The clean sheet was a big deal for us.”
