Wadd a fine display from Bull

Next Story

Wycombe boss Gary Waddock reserved special praise for Nikki Bull after the goalkeeper produced a stunning display to earn his side a goalless draw at promotion-chasing rivals Torquay.

The home side extended their unbeaten run to nine matches but will be wondering what they needed to do to score after twice hitting the woodwork in the second half as well as running into an inspired Bull.

Waddock said: "To come here and keep a clean sheet and get a point is a very good point. Obviously we rode our luck because they have hit the woodwork twice and Nikki Bull has pulled off a couple of saves."

He added: "Torquay are a very good side and to pick up a point on the road is a very good result.

"Bucks (Torquay manager Paul Buckle) said to me during the course of the game 'if you want to get rid of Bully I will have him'.

"Bully's been outstanding this season and we keep saying it week after week. What can you say about the guy?

"He has been magnificent and he showed again he's an outstanding goalkeeper - and that's why Bucks won't be having him."

Buckle felt the performance of his side was as good as he had seen during his long association at Plainmoor.

He said: "I am very proud at this moment. I thought it was an excellent game of football.

"We are playing against Wycombe, who are right up there, and I thought we were outstanding."
