‘We genuinely can’t drop him now’ – Many Stoke fans react to 20-year-old’s display in Coventry draw

Joe Bursik recorded his fourth clean sheet on the bounce, and seventh in eight matches, although Stoke City were held to a goalless draw at Coventry City yesterday.

Following injuries to both Adam Davies and Angus Gunn, the 20-year-old has been outstanding since being recalled from his loan spell at Doncaster last month.

Bursik was ineligible to face Tottenham in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup in midweek, which saw veteran shotstopper Andy Lonergan make his Stoke debut, but Bursik returned to the side despite the 37-year-old’s impressive performance against Jose Mourinho’s team.

Bursik fully justified his recall by making some crucial saves at St Andrew’s, although it proved to be a frustrating afternoon for Michael O’Neill’s men, who could’ve climbed into the top-six with three points.
