Patient Shuttleworth just taking it one game at a time with New England Revolution

Bobby Shuttleworth has taken a long time to become New England Revolution's number one goalkeeper.

The 27-year old finally grasped the number one mantle in 2014 following the departure of Matt Reis and despite the fact he is now the undisputed first choice gloveman at the Gillette Stadium, Shuttleworth is taking nothing for granted.

"It took me a while to get where I'm at," Shuttleworth told MLSsoccer.com.

"I'm trying to approach each week where I'm just focusing on that one game and trying to put my best effort in for the team for that specific game.

"I'm not looking forward to anything past that game. I think that's something that's worked for me so far, so I'll continue to just try and build on that."

The Revs, currently placed third on the Eastern Conference table, host seventh-placed Columbus Crew this weekend and Shuttleworth is intent on producing another positive performance for the good of the team.

"For me, I'm based on how the team does," he added.

"Ultimately we're in this together and we're all looking to achieve the same goal. The most important thing is three points on the weekend, and hopefully we can continue to build on the last couple of weeks."
