Pepe Reina Moves Up to Second Place in 2012-13 Golden Gloves Race

1,389

Consecutive shutouts mean that Pepe Reina is now up to second in the Golden Gloves battle for 2012-13.

Shutouts against West Ham and Reading took the Spaniard to 11 this season — just three behind current leader (Manchester City goalkeeper) Joe Hart.

This is despite the fact that Reina has played five fewer games because of injuries.

Overall, Liverpool has 13 shutouts this term — with Brad Jones contributing two. Last season’s total was 12.

Reina has won the coveted Golden Gloves three times — more than any other goalkeeper since the award was created in 2004-05.

With just five games remaining, it is going to be difficult for him to catch the Manchester City and England stopper — but a fourth award is still possible.
