Aim To Learn From Mistake

17 December 2013

Youngster Ben aiming to learn to learn from Coventry experience

Young goalkeeper Ben Garratt says he is looking to learn from his mistake after he conceded a penalty against Coventry at the weekend. He conceded a spot-kick for the second successive game after doing something similar against Wycombe in our FA Cup replay but the 19-year-old admits that is life as the last line of defence as a goalkeeper. 

Ben, who is hoping to keep his place for the visit of Shrewsbury this week told “Every game I play at first team level is a big learning curve for me.

 “You have to learn from the experience and take that on. It is what you train for all week and I enjoyed it at Coventry.

“When you make a mistake they do seem to get punished as a goalkeeper, but that is life as a goalkeeper. It is part of the game and you have to take it on board. When I look back at the penalty and gone through it with Steve (Phillips) I perhaps should have stayed on my line and set myself for a shot but it will be something I will learn from.”
