Keeper hailed after stalemate

Next Story

Birmingham goalkeeper Colin Doyle was praised by rival managers Chris Hughton and Mick McCarthy after his injury-time double save earned his side an FA Cup replay against Wolves.

Doyle finger-tipped a powerful drive from Wolves winger Matt Jarvis on to the post and then reacted quickly to keep out Steven Fletcher's close range follow-up header.

Blues boss Hughton said: "It was a brilliant save at the end. It kept us in the tie. That is the thing with keepers. They cannot be too troubled for most of the game which was the case today. But we certainly needed Colin at that moment and it earned us a replay."
