Long may the clean sheets continue

14 September 2014

  • Keiren Westwood pleased with latest shutout
  • Owls drew 0-0 at Bolton on Saturday
  • Now face Birmingham away this Tuesday

After posting his third clean sheet from six, Keiren Westwood is determined to extend that meanness towards opposition frontlines.

The Owls drew 0-0 at Bolton on Saturday and although it was widely accepted the one point should have been all three for the visitors, Westwood is staying fully focused on the positives.

He said: “As part of the defence, what you want is a clean sheet because that means you come out of the game with at least at point.

“If we can get all three, great, but at first base you take the one.

“The point is that we were outstanding at Bolton and that is what we need going into the game against Birmingham on Tuesday.

“It’s no one-off either because we have played well in pretty much every game this season.”

Westwood went on to explain the levels of concentration required for a goalkeeper in a team that dominates a contest in the manner the Owls did on Saturday:

“You have to be 100 per cent focused throughout because all it takes is one break and you can be done.

“The lads were fantastic at Bolton and as a goalkeeper I didn’t have too much to do but when I did, I had to be alert.

“Experience helps because the more you do something, the better you get at it.

“And if you ask any goalkeeper, I’m sure he would rather have a quiet game because that means more often than not your team will come out winners.”
