Mansfield Town goalkeeper Nathan Bishop hailed the 'desire' of his teammates to keep a first clean sheet of the season away to Leyton Orient.
The on-loan Manchester United man made key saves to deny the second-placed Londoners, including an injury time stop to deny Theo Archibald.
Bishop hopes the Stags can advance from their strongest defensive performance of the season in coming games.
The 21-year-old complimented the efforts of his teammates in the match.
"The boys were fantastic today. I thought defensively they were just excellent," Bishop said.
"[I have] an appreciation of them. I thought they were fantastic all over the pitch today.
"We came with a game plan and we executed it really well.
"I really didn't have that much to do because of it.
"Even the subs that came on put a shift in.
"Burky [Ryan Burke] at left back just winning headers at the end of the game, clearing balls and things like that just means the world.
"They wanted to pride themselves with a clean sheet and they really did deserve it over [the course of] the season."
The loanee made his own impact on the game, denying two Orient chances.
"It's nice to keep the ball out of the net and keep a clean sheet.
"[On making an important late save] Nothing processed in my mind. It was really sharp, really quick and I just went with it.
"[On Archibald's long-range effort] It was wobbling everywhere so to see that go somewhere else apart from the goal and hit my hand was lovely as well.
"I'm just delighted with it [the team's performance] and delighted with a clean sheet."
The youngster hopes Mansfield can gain confidence from the display.
"On a performance basis I think all over the pitch everyone's going to be confident of what they're capable of [now]." Bishop said.
"Their defensive attitude today was fantastic [and] their desire.
"I think if [we can] carry that into next week then there's not much more you can do.
"They were fantastic."
