The England goalkeeper pulled off a number of timely stops against the high-flying hosts but kept his most memorable moment until the death when he flung himself to his left to keep out Benjani Mwaruwari's added-time penalty and ensure a 0-0 draw. It was his second spot-kick stop of the campaign, having also kept out Kevin Doyle's effort in last month's 3-0 win at Reading.
"It is great," Green said. "I had never saved a penalty in my first-team career before this season so now it is two in two. I am going to enjoy it while it is going for me." He believed that an away defeat would have been especially harsh after a fine showing, although modestly summed up his own contribution as "OK".
"It was a game that I thought we could have won," he added. "To come away from home with nothing on the back of missing out on opportunities and a [penalty] decision like that would have been a sickener."
