Tony Mowbray was pleased to see Jayson Leutwiler claim his first clean sheet from his maiden appearance of the season in the narrow victory over QPR.
Leutwiler stepped in to deputise in place of David Raya against the Hoops and produced an assured performance in difficult conditions.
And the boss believes a big reason for that came down to the 29-year-old Canada international's experience.
“Jayson’s experienced and I think the biggest thing from him today was that experience. He didn’t do anything daft as some young goalkeepers go looking for things to do," the boss reflected after the game.
“He was happy to not have too much to do and I think that was mainly down to his experience. I’ve had him before at Middlesbrough when I brought him to England from Switzerland.
“I’m pleased for him as he works very hard every day and number two goalkeepers have to be ready. There’s not much reward most weeks but he was ready for today.
“He got the clean sheet and we’re happy enough with that."
