Stoke manager praises on-loan goalkeeper after Old Trafford heroics

Man Utd 1-1 Stoke

Mark Hughes praised Lee Grant after the Stoke City goalkeeper kept Manchester United at bay in the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

Grant, 33, was signed on a six-month loan from Derby County in the summer and emerged ahead of Shay Given and Jakob Haugaard to take the gloves after Jack Butland's injury.

On Sunday he produced eight saves, the joint-most by a goalkeeper in the competition this season.

“He is a confident guy and we all saw his confidence this afternoon, which is just what you need when you come and play at Old Trafford,” Hughes told

“He is enjoying his time here, getting opportunities that maybe he didn’t think he would have and he is taking them chances with both hands.”
