 At the moment, there are few sides as unpredictable as the Army in the Premier League, and it was another underwhelming outing for Bruce’s boys after a couple of really promising displays in the past week or so. A late 2-1 win against papered over a whole host of issues and  managed to keep their unbeaten run trundling along, but this was hardly a vintage outing, and it speaks volumes that it was  who drew a  lot of praise from supporters on social media. It was another watertight display from the big stopper, and even though he conceded, he deserved the praise that was lavished on him. There are times when he keeps in matches almost singlehandedly, and without his interventions against the Saints, in the first half in particular, even a point might have been too far out of sight for Bruce’s side. So far this term, the 30-year-old has averaged 3.8 saves per game in the Premier League so far this term, as per Whoscored, and a high proportion of those have been right out of the top drawer. It doesn’t bare thinking about where the  might be were it not for the Slovakian, and every passing week, the Army must be a little more thankful for him.
