Mark Robins hailed goalkeeper Lee Burge after his heroics on Tuesday night sealed Coventry City a much-needed three points.
Burge has come in for criticism recently and presented Burton Albion with their winner at the Ricoh Arena on Friday night.
But the 26-year-old, who is out of contract at Coventry in the summer, pulled off a series of fine saves in the 2-1 victory over Fleetwood Town.
He stood firm in the face of an aerial bombardment that included 13 corners and protected City’s lead with a magnificent block at Ched Evans’ feet and a flying injury-time save from Ashley Hunter.
Cod Army manager Joey Barton reserved a special mention for Burge in his post-match press conference – and Sky Blues boss Robins did the same.
“He made a great save, a really good save at the end,” Robins said. “There are times when you can see that they get a little bit anxious and nervous and the technique goes a little bit because of it.
“But he’s played over 150 games now and he’s got a lot of experience and he needs to draw on that at times, and I think he does.
“He just needs to be settled and calm when he’s distributing the ball at times but he made the brilliant save at the end which meant that we kept the three points.”
