Wolves defender keeping it clean

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Christophe Berra is celebrating the second clean sheet of the season, and is hoping the unexpected run will continue.

Wolves are so far undefeated in the Barclays Premier League and the 26-year-old is as surprised as anyone.

He said: "If someone had said we'd take seven points from nine - including two games away from home - we'd have snapped their hands off."

Berra fought off a trio of English strikers against Aston Villa on Saturday and is pleased to have stopped Gabriel Agbonlahor, Emile Heskey and Darren Bent from finding the net.

"We were put under a lot of pressure but that's going to happen against a good team away from home but I thought we defended well and stayed solid," the defender continued.

"Centre backs and defenders and goalkeepers all pride themselves on clean sheets.

"That's two in a row in the league and long may it continue because if we can keep clean sheets and minimise mistakes we've got a chance.



“If you don't concede then you get something from the game.

"We defended from the strikers all the way back which is what you have to do."

Berra was also comfortable playing alongside new captain Roger Johnson.

"We've seen Roger play for the last two seasons with Birmingham and have seen the leadership that he has," he added.

"Hopefully we can keep the partnership going but we know that if performances drop there are other players on the sidelines waiting to come in.”
