Double save was "special moment" for Millwall goalkeeper

DAVID Forde admits his stunning save against Cardiff will live long in his memory.

The Millwall stopper parried Craig Noone's drive and then kept out Adam Le Fondre's follow up in a 1-0 win over the Bluebirds last weekend.

The Den crowd chanted Forde's name after his heroics in the first half.

And he said: "It was fantastic because you work on those things in training – making double saves and getting up quickly – so for something like that to come off in a game is special.

"It's one of those memorable moments that will always stay with you. The reaction from the crowd was phenomenal – it was like we'd scored a goal.

"I have managed to get down low to the first shot – it's a difficult one because it's in a grey area, the blockhole as we call it, because you could go with your hand or your foot.

"It's a difficult place for a keeper to get to.

"Initially I was just happy to keep that one out of the net and get a good hand on it, but as the ball came back out into play I had to swing myself back up and make myself big.

"When it falls to Le Fondre, with his scoring record, it's usually a goal. I was delighted to make a big save and keep us in the game.

"That’s another clean sheet – three in our last four games and six in 14 this season. If we can keep that record going, it'll be a good season."

    Great save Fordey. If that one goes in we would've obviously gone a goal down, then an entirely different game. Moments like those give you the platform to go on and win the game. Well done all for another clean sheet.

    Fordey has a good point about us having a better defensive record this season. Last year we were allowing goals in like a sieve. Granted, we still can't score, but at least we're not playing from behind all the time.

      @wall2wall: Good footage.

      Aldo - any chance of reining in the pop-ups? Took me three attempts to get rid of the advertising before I could watch the video. It's a shame - these aggressive pop-ups are ruining an otherwise very good site.
