Emiliano Martinez delighted with a point as Wolves hold Brighton & Hove Albion

21 September 2015

Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez was delighted as he helped his side to a goalless draw with Brighton & Hove Albion in the Sky Bet Championship.

Martinez was the hero for Wolves, saving a first-half Tomer Hemed penalty and blocking the Israeli striker's rebounded effort, and the Argentine stopper continued to be a dominant presence as the league leaders failed to find a way through.

The 23-year-old, on loan from Arsenal, was pleased with his first clean sheet of the season, especially considering his side spent nearly half the match with 10 men following Conor Coady's 49th-minute dismissal.

“We have to finish up being delighted with a point,” Martinez told the club's official website.

We have to carry on working hard and the result will come along! I'm happy for the clean sheet. Amazing support! 👍

“It wasn’t just about the penalty save – it was the performance of the team overall. It was a first clean sheet of the season and we have to be delighted with that and enjoy it.

“We are all pleased we managed to do it, we did a really good job given they are top of the league and flying and we were down to 10 men.”
