Brentford Reaction - Cherries

Last updated : 04 January 2011 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

Big Steve Fletcher raised goal keeping hero Shwan Jalal following some breath taking saves against Brentford at Dean Court, being quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "I told Jal it was the save of the decade – but we’re only three days into it! It was the best I had seen at Dean Court in my 17 years here. As soon as the lad headed it, I thought it was a goal. Jal’s body weight was going one way and he managed to adjust. Not only did he save it, but he palmed it around the post as well. It was unbelievable. The penalty save was great but I’m sure the first one would have given him more satisfaction because it was top class. Any Premier League goalkeeper would have been proud of it".

On his outstanding performance, Jalal was quoted as saying: "I managed to keep my footing and reacted at the last minute to parry it around the post. I was happy with the save".
