Ashdown sets post-war record

Ashdown sets post-war record

Our run of victories, and cleansheets, might have come to an end with defeat last night but Jamie Ashdown still left Bristol with a record.

By holding out until the latter stages of the 1st half he took his run to 636 minutes without conceding.

In doing so he set a new post-war record, beating Peter Mellor's previous, for minutes without conceding...

Conceding a league goal that is! The overall record, for league and cup, is still held by Mellor.

So, hats off to Ashdown for this.

Although, and taking nothing away from Paddy, the defence has deserved so much credit during this run - he may be the one in the record books but his back four, and the team as a whole really, deserve some credit too.

It is just a shame that he could not have extended this further.

That said, if some half a dozen games a go or so if we had been told this would happen I do not think many would have believed it would!

Right...

    Goalkeeper's get blamed for slips, week goals, howlers, whatever so fair play you still have to credit clean sheets to keepers 1st then the defenders, midfield, team in that order.

    I certainly never thought I would say it but 'well done Jamie after the previous few months of as pompeyyong says our whole teams inability to keep a clean sheet. How many games did we go conceding goal after, goal?

    I was never a fan of Paddy, and maybe I still am not, but this record shows how far he has gone; from being number 2 to becoming a record-breaker. Well done boy!
