Brown celebrated his ninth clean sheet of the season - the highest in League Two so far this term - by saving Mark Byrne's 65th-minute spot kick in the 1-0 victory against the Bees.

But the 27-year-old Robins keeper believes Deering should receive the praise after giving Brown some useful advice.

Brown told the Gloucestershire Echo: "I got the man-of-the-match champagne but I gave it to Sammy because he deserves all the credit.

"I write things down and do all the research I can but to be honest I was going to guess the other way.

"He (Byrne) had two penalties the previous week and he went the other way with both. But a bit of divine intervention from Sam, who told me to go the other way, helped me out."

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.
