Goalkeeper Josh Lillis, who pulled off three outstanding saves to deny Bury in Saturday’s derby at Gigg Lane, has told Dale PlayerHD that he’s pleased to have kept a clean sheet.
Dale defended resolutely throughout the game and relied on Lillis to keep out the Shakers with a double save shortly before the interval and another close range stop in the second half.
“Personally, it’s always pleasing to keep a clean sheet and to make saves along the way – that’s what you want to do as goalkeeper,” said Lillis.
“You’re called upon all the time in games so you’ve got to stay switched on, so overall it’s pleasing to get a point.
“You want to keep a clean sheet after coming into the game off the back of conceding too many goals in our previous games after having had a great start to the season. As a team we all really wanted to get that clean sheet. It’s always nice to make saves but lads defended really well.”
