I have felt very confident and made some good saves but then that is my job really!”

Ipswich Town have signed Fulham winger Ben Pringle on an initial month's loan.
There is an agreement for the 26-year-old to stay at Portman Road for the rest of the season if he impresses.
Pringle will help cover for the loss of Ryan Fraser who has been ruled out for the next two months.
He is available to make his debut at Bristol City tomorrow (February 13).
“When the opportunity came up to come here on loan, it was an easy decision.
I know Mick McCarthy’s stature in the game and what he has achieved and that was a big pulling power.
I knew there was interest in me from Ipswich last summer when I left Rotherham. I wasn’t offered a contract here or anything like that but I’m delighted to have the opportunity to join the club now.
Fulham are my parent club and it will depend on what they say but if things go well for me here and Ipswich are happy with me, I’d definitely be interested in getting something done here for the future.”
Bristol City v Ipswich Town, Sky Bet Championship, Saturday 13 February, 15:00
Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has confirmed that Fulham winger Ben Pringle is set to sign for the club on loan in the coming days.
The 26-year-old is expected to join on an initial month's loan and could make his debut against Bristol City this weekend.
Pringle will help cover for the loss of Ryan Fraser who has been ruled out for two months with a torn hamstring, while Cole Skuse will also be missing for the next six weeks with a foot injury.
Ipswich Town have cancelled the contract of striker James Alabi by mutual consent.
Alabi joined Town in the summer and has recently been on loan at Grimsby Town.
The 21-year-old is now free to find another club.
Ipswich Town have terminated the contract of Australian winger Tommy Oar.
Oar only joined in the summer, but has failed to settle in England.
The 24-year-old wants to move closer to his family in Australia, and although Town were keen to keep him, manager Mick McCarthy has reluctantly allowed him to leave.
"I’d like to thank Ipswich Town for their co-operation over ending my contract.
It’s a great club and the manager, staff and players made me feel very welcome but while I have enjoyed playing for Ipswich, I have found it difficult to settle into life in England.
I have been away from home for five or six years now. My family came over at Christmas and maybe I’ve got to a point where I want to be closer to home again.
It’s just one of those things where moving over here as not worked out as I had hoped but I’d like to wish the club, the manager, the staff and the players the best of luck over the rest of the season and I hope to be watching Ipswich in the Premier League next year.”
Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has extended his contract with the club until 2018.
McCarthy has had a big impact at Portman Road since joining in 2012 and led Town to the play-offs last season despite working on a limited budget.
Ipswich are competing again at the right end of The Championship and currently sit just outside the top six.
Assistant boss Terry Connor has also been given a new deal.
“TC (Terry Connor) and I are obviously delighted to have extended our contracts. We are really enjoying the job here and the results on the pitch have improved year on year.
In a relentless and tough league that the Championship is, that is testament to the hard work the players have put in. I think we have a team we can all be proud of and it’s mine and TC’s job to make sure that continues.”
Ipswich Town have completed the signing of former Wolves defender Kevin Foley.
Town have been on the lookout for a full-back since they sold Jonny Parr to Norwegian side Strømsgodset earlier this month.
31-year-old Foley was recently released by FC Copenhagen and played under manager Mick McCarthy at Wolves.
He's signed a contract until the end of the season.
“This is a great club and I’m delighted to be here.
It’s taken a bit of time due to the international clearance and stuff but I’m just happy it’s done now. I really enjoyed my time here anyway and a door sort of opened up for me once Jonny Parr departed.
I know the gaffer and TC (Terry Connor) from our days at Wolves and it’s great to work with them again. They know what I’m all about and likewise I know how they work."
