Citys Swedish international goalkeeper Magnus Hedman has vowed to keep his world
class spell of form going after another invincible performance.
The 26-year-old performed heroics in the City goal to deny Newcastle last week, but he
eclipsed that performance with a string of breathtaking saves in Saturdays 0-0 draw
with Sheffield Wednesday.
Hedmans current form is his best since he joined the club from AIK Stockholm for
£500,000 in 1996, and has led to him being linked with Newcastle United and Manchester
United in recent months.
After the game with Wednesday both managers admitted that Hedman had earned his side a
point, but the keeper himself was just delighted to keep the opposition out.
"It is very nice to have a clean sheet because there have not been many of them
this season for Coventry.
"I am playing well at the moment and everything is going my way just now, my
training is good, I have avoided any serious injuries and it has been feeling good.
"I just want to keep that form going for as long as I possible, I am very pleased
with the way I am playing."
And the big Swede caught the eye in Sheffield with some stunning saves, mostly from
fellow countryman Niclas Alexandersson, who Hedman admitted was brassed off with his
international team mate.
"I spoke to Niclas in the players lounge afterwards and I dont think he was
too pleased that I managed to keep him out.
"However, he did say to me that I played well and deserved to keep a clean sheet -
that was his exact words."
And Hedman believes that both Wednesday and the Sky Blues can now steer a course away
from the danger zone after the stale-mate between the two sides.
"Wednesday are a good team. I watched them playing against Leeds United and
although they lost they were the better team in that game.
"We are also starting to play well and are picking up points in our away games,
which is the difference between a top ten side and a side who are down the bottom."
