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.
“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 have to carry on working hard and the result will come along! I'm happy for the clean sheet. Amazing support! 👍 pic.twitter.com/26pP5NRxCU— Damian Emi Martinez (@emimartinezz1) September 19, 2015
“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.”
