ROB LAINTON'S stats are right up there with the best as he lays claim to the title of clean sheet king.

The 29-year-old goalkeeper has been a revelation since joining Wrexham initially on loan from Port Vale last summer.

Wrexham are challenging for promotion from the National League and Lainton, one of the favourites for the Player of the Year award, has more than played his part.

Lainton has kept 20 clean sheets in 42 league outings for the Reds, only missing the 1-1 draw at Gateshead in February through injury.

No other stopper can rival Lainton for shut-outs and his clean sheet percentage is is bettered only by the world's most expensive goalkeeper - Alisson Becker - who joined Liverpool from Roma in a £67m move last summer.

The National League tweeted: "Nobody has kept more clean sheets in England's top five leagues than Wrexham's Rob Lainton (20).

"Only Allison Becker of Liverpool has a higher clean sheet percentage (52.9 per cent) than Wrexham's Rob Lainton (48.8 per cent) in the England's top five leagues."

Wrexham took over Lainton's contract from League Two outfit Vale in November but he is one of the players out of contract at the end of the season.
