Daniels clearance was a huge part in AFCB's season

It could have been another Leicester story against WBA, having worked so hard to get in front of Alan Pardew's team. A last minute clearance from the line from Craig Dawson could have ruined the day again for AFCB, but Charlie Daniels made sure that even if Begovic was beaten, he was not going to let WBA score a second goal.
Charlie saved AFCB with his last minute clearance.
Clearing the ball off the line was as crucial as the goals scored at the other end. A point would have been something considering AFCB had been behind, but to get the three points was huge and has pushed AFCB to the edge of safety. Sometime defenders don't get the recognition they deserve but Daniels can be pleased with how he played and the final goal line clearance.

Charlie Daniels had been left out of the starting line up after his recent performances against Leicester and Spurs. It was probably just as well I thought having seen Allan Nyom flying down WBA's right wing in the opening stages of the game, but Daniels managed to make the right back defend a bit more as the game progressed and Daniels had a good game in general which must have pleased Eddie Howe.

Daniels may well find himself back in contention now for the next game as well with Simon Francis and Adam Smith struggling for fitness. But he has now been dropped for a game which should give him the motivation to watch that he keeps his match levels at the highest standards.
