Freddie Woodman hails duo after another clean sheet
Freddie Woodman hailed the displays of Ben Wilmot and Ben Cabango as the Swansea City goalkeeper kept a third straight clean sheet in the draw at Cardiff.
The 22-year-old now has nine Championship shut-outs to his name so far this season; only Leeds’ Kiko Casilla has kept more.
The clean sheet at Cardiff came on the back of the goalless draw against Barnsley and the 1-0 win over Charlton.
Woodman was delighted to keep the sequence going, but was quick to share the credit with the entire team.
But he had particular praise for the centre-half pairing of Wilmot and Cabango, who have a combined age of just 39.
“Personally, it’s great to get another clean sheet; that’s three on the spin now. That’s always nice as a goalkeeper and a defensive unit,” said Woodman.
“I think there’s too much focus on the goalkeeper when it comes to clean sheets; it’s down to the whole team.
“The lads are constantly putting their bodies on the line and it always helps me as a goalkeeper.
“I thought the two centre-halves were magnificent. They’re young lads but won every header and battled right to the end.
“They deserve a massive shout-out.”
