MCLAUGHLIN SAYS SAVING A PENALTY IS EQUIVALENT TO SCORING A GOAL

23 March 2015

Jon McLaughlin made his second penalty save in as many games when he kept the Brewers ahead against Tranmere.

In some aspects, goalkeepers don’t get to celebrate their performances like players can if they have a good game. McLaughlin said saving a penalty is the equivalent of scoring a goal.

“Obviously it is brilliant to have those sorts of saves in games.

“Saving a penalty for a goalkeeper is like saving a goal I guess so yes it is great to make those key saves in games.”

Four wins on the bounce has kept the Brewers sky high at the top of the League 2 table. With two wins in a week against Southend and Tranmere respectively, I think it is fair to say that McLaughlin has definitely contributed to the wins by denying two spot kicks.

“It has turned out to help with two massive results in two games this week.

“Two penalty saves in a week is a first in my career and I certainly enjoyed them.

“It is exactly like scoring a goal.

“It isn’t too often that we get to celebrate something that we have done in a game so it is great when you get those.”
