Blackpool boss tips QPR’s Lumley to be ‘top, top goalkeeper’

Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer has told his club’s website he believes Joe Lumley will become a top goalkeeper.

Lumley, 23, has impressed since joining the Tangerines on loan from QPR last month and kept a clean sheet in a win against Portsmouth on Saturday.

“He’s played superbly again without having a great deal to do,” Bowyer said.

“The calmness he brings, knowing that he’s coming for crosses, especially against Portsmouth with the height of Hawkins, Burgess and Clark from set-plays, was so important and he executed it perfectly. He’s going to be a top, top goalkeeper in my opinion.”
