Clean sheets breed confidence, says Pilgrims keeper Ross Durrant

Ross Durrant wants to end the season with more clean sheets - starting with Altrincham today.

Last weekend’s stalemate at FC Halifax Town was Boston’s first shut-out in six games, and their second in 20.

Durrant has been between the sticks for the past 12 of those matches, and is now setting his sights on more matches where he isn’t picking the ball out of his net.

“When you get clean sheets you get a massive amount of confidence, both the back four and myself,” he said.

“You hope to take that forward.

“We look like keeping clean sheets, it’s just been one or two times when we’ve switched off.

“I’m sure there’ll be more in the remaining 10 games.

“We take great confidence from this performance.

“I think we can take a lot from it.”

The former Nottingham Forest trainee is now eyeing his third clean sheet since his switch from Ikeston.

The Robins sit rock bottom of the National League North, and were beaten 1-0 by the Pilgrims in the north west back in September.

Kick off will be at 3pm.
