Town midfielder salutes fellow loanee Walton

On-loan midfielder Alex Gilliead praised goalkeeper Christian Walton for his brilliant late penalty save that earned a point in the goalless draw at Notts County.


It was the Town’s first clean sheet in the league since 27th August at Cambridge – four days before the England Under-20 international joined from Newcastle.


Speaking to Hatters Player after yesterday’s game, Gilliead said: “It’s a clean sheet – our first since I’ve been here – so that’s always a positive. 


“Coming away to Notts, they are a decent side this year. First half I thought we had a lot of chances. Second half I thought the game turned a bit scrappy and was a bit of a fight, but overall I think we are happy with a point away from home.”


On Walton’s save from Vadaine Oliver, he added: “Chris is a class keeper. He’s a top keeper. I didn’t really see much about the penalty, I just saw the referee give it. 


“It’s one of those touch and go ones, but all credit to Chris. It’s an absolute unreal save and it’s kept us in the game, it’s saved us the point.


“We know how good Chris is, we see him in training every day. We know that he’s got that in his locker, so everyone is happy for him.”
