And the Spanish stopper explained how he encouraged his throughout the game against Queens Park Rangers.
He said: “I kept on telling him he needed to concentrate for 90 minutes and also have confidence in himself.

Burke insists that the youngsters at the club are made to feel a part of things at first team level.
He said: “It is not just the likes of me or Josh Cullen and Reece Oxford. There are a number of under-18s who train with the first team too.
