Goalkeeper Smith wants to watch back over his performance against Brentford
Paul Smith has said he will be asking for a DVD to look back at his performance in the 2-1 defeat to Brentford at Griffin Park.
Up against his former club, Paul made a string of spectacular saves, including one from Harry Forrester’s penalty, and was unlucky to end up on the losing side.
Paul was praised for his performance by everyone at the game, including Brentford’s players, Paul Sturrock and fans of both teams.
And while he was going to be requesting a DVD to watch his display, he was ultimately disappointed to have been knocked out the FA Cup.
He said: “It’s disappointing in the end with the outcome of the result, we came up against a good side tonight.
“They get the ball down and pass it around well. They got plenty of crosses in and plenty of shots on goal. I think it was just one of those nights for us.
“I will be asking for a DVD of the game so I can have a watch back over it, it’s not often you have to make so many saves.”
Smith was understandably pleased with his performance, and put it down to the hard work with goalkeeping coach Terry Mason.
Smith was pleased with his own performance and puts it down to hard work with goalkeeping coach Terry Mason.
“We have a strong goalkeeping unit with Terry, Dan and I. He works hard with us day in and day out to get the best out of us.
“I’m confident with the back four and they’re more than happy with me at the moment. We have a good relationship together and we have to build on it from there.”
Blues now get back to their bread-and-butter with a return to league action on Saturday against Plymouth Argyle.
Smith added: ““We’ll be back training by Thursday or Friday and our focus will be on the league game at the weekend.
“We have to put the disappointment behind us and focus on the Plymouth game which is going to be tough.”
An interview with Paul is available on Blues Player.
