Cameron Dawson thoroughly enjoyed his night’s work on Saturday as the Owls progressed in the Emirates FA Cup.
The Owls goalkeeper made key saves throughout the cup-tie with Newcastle to help book our place in round four, where we’ll host Fleetwood.
Facing the form side of the Premier League, Dawson knew what to expect and was called into action early to deny Magpies’ record signing Alexander Isak from close range.
Then moments after Josh Windass had broken the deadlock in the second half, Dawson again showed his class to keep out Elliot Anderson’s low strike from six yards.
“It was a fantastic night,” he said. “It reminded me of the Arsenal game a few years ago, a similar sort of atmosphere, a full away following and it was a proper cup-tie.
“The lads were resolute, scored two good goals and thankfully we just about got over the line in the end!
“We put our bodies on the line and got the job done.”
The third round triumph was our fourth win on the spin in all competitions.
Dawson continued: “Even when we’ve not played our best we’ve managed to hang in there and get results.
“We had some great passages of play against a top, top Premier League outfit so there is definitely confidence to be taken from that.
“We stayed resolute, defended well and that’s what we want when we return to the league next week.
“It’s always nice to save one early and against a top team, normally your goalie is going to have to make some saves!
“It was nice to be able to make a few - I would have liked the clean sheet but I think that’s me being a bit greedy!
“To have that feeling at the full time whistle and to be able to turn around and celebrate with the Kop was excellent.”
