Swindon Town loan goalkeeper Wes Foderingham says he is not under pressure to keep a sixth consecutive clean sheet in the league.

If the 20-year-old can stop AFC Wimbledon scoring on Saturday, he will equal the club record set by Peter Downsborough in the 1968-69 season.

"The main thing is the three points," he told BBC Wiltshire.

"If I do get six on Saturday then that would be great but if I don't I won't lose sleep over it."

He added: "I won't be thinking about the record. Obviously I want the clean sheet but I'm not going to chase it."

Foderingham, who is on loan from Crystal Palace, had not made an appearance in the Football League before his arrival at the County Ground on a two-month deal, with his only first-team experience coming at Histon.

He made his debut against Accrington on 15 October and the only goal he has conceded came in the 4-1 win against League One Huddersfield in the FA Cup.

"It was a good goal so at least it wasn't a clanger from me," he added. "I was going to concede sooner or later, I was just happy that we got the win.

"This is my first experience in the Football League and to start on a positive note with five clean sheets is fantastic for me.

"I felt a lot of pressure coming here at the start because I hadn't been on loan in the League before. I felt a certain pressure to do well and prove myself.

"To come out of the games playing well and keeping clean sheets has done me the world of good and I feel really confident now."
