Paulo Gazzaniga was delighted to keep a clean sheet at Bristol City and secure Fulham’s safe passage into the fourth round of the FA Cup.
The Argentinian goalkeeper, making his first appearance November, produced a string of fine saves to keep the Whites in the contest before Harry Wilson’s extra time winner at Ashton Gate. Gazzaniga told FFCTV that he hoped the Cup success could provide some momentum for the busy run of January fixtures:
“It was a very tough game, but the team reacted very well. We made a big, big effort and this is the result. It was teamwork and we were very happy. We showed that we were a solid team and we are starting to build up our confidence again. We hope that this will help us for future games.”
Gazzaniga was pleased that Fulham’s battling qualities came to the fore as they dug in through some difficult periods to record a gritty victory.
It’s always nice to get minutes. We are used to doing this. It is our job. We have to be ready. It is great to build up our confidence for the whole team. It is always nice to get a clean sheet and to win the game the way we did. We didn’t always play a great game, but it always very important to get a clean sheet.
I have to show that I am there, pushing [Marek]. That’s my job! I don’t have a favourite save – I am just very happy with the clean sheet. It is always great to make the fans happy. They follow us everywhere so this is amazing.”
