A 2018/19 summer recruit, Mark Gillespie is a solid shot stopper who can turn defence into attack at speed.

The goalkeeper made his name with Carlisle United and gained nationwide attention for his performance in a League Cup game with Liverpool in 2015.

Having helped his team take the Anfield giants to penalties, he then kept out Phillipe Coutinho and Adam Lallana in the shootout with two fine saves.

He continued his penalty saving form in the Premiership in 2018/19, keeping out 50% of the eight penalties he faced.
