David De Gea might have been a catalyst in driving Manchester United towards the Champions League quarter-finals in midweek, but goalkeeping understudy Sam Johnstone is also proving more than a big hit between the sticks for his current loan club.

The Spanish shot-stopper was lauded with praise following an impeccable double save which denied Olympiacos duo David Fuster and Alejandro Dominguez during Wednesday night’s must-win match for United.

Travel a bit further down the M62 and in Doncaster you’ll find United’s young goalkeeper Johnstone is continuing to make a name for himself.

The 20-year-old is certainly making sure that the Red Devils coaches are keeping an eye on how well he is currently doing with some match-winning saves that have all helped to drive forward Rovers’ hopes for Championship survival.
