Goalkeeper spotlight: Tom Heaton

After his heroics in the Penalty shoot out against Crystal Palace (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/16589189), after saving two penalties, Tom Heaton is winning his battle to be fit to play in the Carling Cup Final against Liverpool.

In the match against Palace, Tom Heaton received the praise he deserved (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/16712457). It’s not the first time Heaton has drawn the plaudits, after winning Cardiff’s young player of the season the year before.

Tom Heaton has battled a few times with injury in the past and this has often been the reason for him not necessarily being a first choice keeper. But battles back he does, eventually earning himself a first team start and then doing more than enough to stay in between the sticks.

It’s not just injury he battles then, he battles to be number one, and what a fight against the also impressive David Marshall. I hope that he gets his chance against Liverpool as he’s most certainly earned it. Even David Marshall agrees: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/16954682

I think Tom Heaton is definitely a Keeper to watch – a talented player who will have a big future!
