MARK WARBURTON praised goalkeeper Wes Foderingham after the Gers stopper kept another impressive clean sheet against Queen of the South.

The English number one kept the opposition from scoring for the eighteenth time this season and making eight saves throughout the match to keep the Doonhamers at bay.

Speaking after the game, Gers manager Warburton waxed lyrical about his goalkeeper. He said: “I think he’s an outstanding player.

“He’s still young, but his distribution is great and he is good with the ball at his feet. His reaction saves are first class.

“You might say he’s not the tallest at 6 foot 1, but he dominates his box as well. Wes has been outstanding.”

The Gers defence has been in good form this season and have only conceded seventeen times in the Championship in total this term with the Light Blues dominant in possession and going forward.

Warburton continued: “In a lot of games he doesn’t touch the ball for long periods but he maintains concentration as well. All credit to him today, he made two or three great saves but he has been outstanding all season.

“He’s a young player who has come from playing in front of 5, 6 and 7000 people to being at home in front of 45 or 50,000.

“He’s learning from it, dealing with it and handling the pressure that comes with. He’s a baby in terms of being a keeper at 24.”
