Pundit Don Goodman praised this Birmingham City player in Newcastle draw

Pundit Don Goodman praised this Birmingham City player in Newcastle draw Kuszczak save

Pundit Don Goodman lauded ‘resilient’ Birmingham City for grinding out a deserved point at home to Newcastle on Saturday.

The former Wolves striker also singled out Tomasz Kuszczak for praise after the experienced goalkeeper put in a superb display to keep a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw.

Goodman told Sky Sports News that the result was a big shock with most people expecting the Toon to ‘steamroller’ Blues.

“The Championship throws up massive surprises on a regular basis,” Goodman said.

“I think everybody probably expected Newcastle to go and steamroller Birmingham – they are the best away team in the division.

“But Birmingham put up a fight, were resilient and had a goalkeeper in outstanding form.”

However, he doesn’t view the result as a set-back for Rafael Benitez’s men.

“I think given the other results elsewhere they have actually made progress this weekend – and you can never sniff at that can you?

“What with Brighton losing and Huddersfield losing surprisingly, it’s a point gained.”
