Robson: Happy To Keep Clean Sheet

15 February 2022

Goalkeeper David Robson was happy to keep a clean sheet as the Under-23s played out a goalless draw against Barnsley at the MKM Stadium.

The 20-year-old produced a string of impressive saves throughout the fixture, including denying Barnsley from the penalty spot as he denied Matthew Wolfe in the first-half.

“It was good to get a clean sheet,” said Robson.

“All in all, it was probably a fair result, but it was also frustrating as you always want to win the game.

“I thought we had enough chances to win, but they had a few chances to be fair as well so it was a good game to watch for the neutral.

“We always want to get points on the board and if you keep a clean sheet, you’re going to get at least a point, so for me I just want to keep as many clean sheets as possible.”

Speaking on his vital penalty save in the first half and the experience of playing at the MKM Stadium, Robson added: “It’s always against Barnsley - I think it’s three in four I’ve saved against them!

“I just guessed the right way and got it. Once you save a penalty, you want a clean sheet even more, because you’ve made that save.

“It was a good experience to play at the MKM Stadium, in front of a fair few fans. It’s a big pitch and the boys had a lot of distance to cover, but I thought they did it really well.”
