LAWRENCE Vigouroux was chuffed to be standing tall, his goal unbreached, after weathering the storm at Gillingham.

Despite the howling wind that added extra velocity to every ball hoisted into the Swindon Town goalie’s area at Priestfield, the 22-year-old clinched his fourth clean sheet of the season as his team managed to halt the high-scoring Gills.

His acrobatic stop from Josh Wright’s long-range effort late in the first half was the only real save Vigouroux was forced to pull off as the spoils were shared and the Liverpool loanee took plenty of heart from keeping out Justin Edinburgh’s promotion-chasers.

“It was a very tough game. I think we knew from the warm-up that it would be a tough game,” Vigouroux told BBC Wiltshire.

“The first half was very difficult because the wind was coming towards us; when we were kicking it a little bit longer, the ball was just coming straight back.

“I think we adjusted well to that and we grew into it as the game went on, and we were more than worth a point.

“We came to a place where the team’s flying high up in the league and we ground out a good draw.

“(We had to) just be confident and composed and try and stay on top of the defenders, and try to adjust to what were very tough conditions.

“I thought we were exceptional at the back. I think Nathan Thompson and Jordan Turnbull were sensational, in my opinion – they made the game very easy for me.

“It helps you having a leader like Nathan back in the side. He’s done well since he’s come back in and I’m very happy to be playing alongside him.

I’m just really happy with the whole team. "We play a different way of football to most teams in the league and we showed that we can do the side that many players in our team don’t really play.

“We showed that we can play that way if it comes down to it.

“I think that’s my fourth (clean sheet) of the season but ones like I had (on Saturday), I think I’ll treasure the most because of the conditions that we played in.

“I’m really happy personally and I’m really happy for the team because we deserved that.”
