WES Foderingham once again received a wealth of praise from his manager Mark Cooper after the Swindon Town goalkeeper excelled in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Sheffield United.

Foderingham made two superb saves from Conor Coady and John Brayford in the first half and pulled off an exceptional reaction stop from Coady less than 30 seconds before Town netted their winner to move within a point of the League One play-offs.

After the game, Cooper lauded the 23-year-old, saying: “We didn’t have enough possession in the second half, we came under a lot of pressure and the goalkeeper had to get us out of jail.

“I thought he made a world class save at the end, which led to the winning goal. The way they dug it out again was very pleasing. They didn’t play particularly well on Tuesday and dug out a result, they were superb in the first half and in the second they were under the cosh against, let’s be honest, a very good team with some very good players but we’ve dug it out again.

“He’s been awesome since he came back into the team. When he was out of the team I think he watched Ty and how Ty distributed the ball and I think he’s learnt a lot from that. They’ve worked closely together and I think his distribution, as well as his shot-stopping, has been fantastic.

“He’s come for an awful lot of crosses as well.”
