"Now Stevie's got his chance over the next few weeks," Keegan told the Evening Chronicle. "He's got his chance to be in there, and make a case.
"I thought he did very well at Liverpool. He couldn't do anything about the first goal, and he kept the score down a little bit with a couple of great saves."
Keegan also said: "We have talked about it before Shay's injury and I will say it again - in Given and Steve Harper we have probably the best pair of goalkeepers in the Premier League."
