Aston Villa goalkeeping coach Eric Steele has backed Thomas Sorensen after he gifted Clinton Morrison a goal in the derby defeat against Birmingham.
The 28-year-old allowed Morrison's innoucuous shot to go in as Villa slumped at home to their rivals.
Steele said: "Thomas will bounce back. He is a good professional, an international keeper.
"You can count on one hand the mistakes he has made since he has been here. He's a strong character."
Steele added: "He will be disappointed but the good thing from my point of view is that he responded immediately and made a good save very quickly afterwards from David Dunn when in on goal.
"That's the sort of character you need. That's experience. At half-time we had a two-minute chat, then it's over and you start again. I am confident that
it won't play on his mind.
"Of course, he will be disappointed but Thomas will recover from this. I've got no doubts.
"You can analyse it all you want but he puts his hand up, says 'my fault' and we move on. Keepers go from hero to zero in one minute."
