Yeovil goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has told BBC Somerset he was happy to keep a clean sheet in the windy conditions on his debut against Bristol Rovers.

"I was looking forward to coming here to the club and helping them out, and we had a decent result," he said.

"I wish we could have got three points but sometimes it doesn't happen and a clean sheet's always good."

The 20-year-old keeper signed on loan from Portsmouth late last week after Crystal Palace recalled Scott Flinders.

The Canadian Under-20 international did enough on his debut to catch the eye of Yeovil manager Russell Slade.

He can be pleased with his debut and hopefully he can build on that now

"The keeper's come in and taken over from Scott Flinders as though nobody was missing," said Slade after Saturday's 0-0 draw.

"Certainly the free-kick looked a good save, and in the first half, where he's turned it over the bar, looked a good save.

"He's read it well and just made sure it's gone over. So he can be pleased with his debut and hopefully he can build on that now."
