Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen likened David Stockdale to Gordon Banks after his wonder save in their FA Cup draw with Norwich City.

Stockdale forced a replay with his super stop against Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

Meulensteen said: "We didn't want it (a replay), I think Chris (Hughton, the Norwich boss) didn't want it either, but that's how it turned out. A draw's a good result away from home.

"David Stockdale had a Gordon Banks-like save to keep us in the game.

"It was definitely one of the best saves I have seen. It was a fantastic cross by (Javier) Garrido and a great leap by Van Wolfswinkel.

"I honestly thought it was in but it was a fantastic save. That's what makes football so exciting sometimes."
