Randolph ready for a bounce back


darren-randolphDarren Randolph showed exactly why he’s our No 1 keeper with a couple of brilliant saves against Chelsea.

However, the stopper readily admits he would sooner have done so when leading than having fallen behind against the league leaders.

However, he paid full credit to the west London outfit admitting: They are a good side and are top of the league for a reason.

They’re well-organised defensively and quick on the break. They broke on us a few times in the game, changing defence into attack in just about ten seconds and we knew it would be tough because they are a top team.”

He made it clear though that he hopes things will be different on Saturday at Bournemouth saying: “It will be another tough game for us.

It’s not the easiest of places to go, but we want to end the season strongly. We’ve worked hard to get ourselves out of the position we were in and we don’t want to let that fade away.”
