Bialkowski's magnificent seven for Notts County
BARTOSZ Bialkowski was so good in Notts County's 1-0 win against Swindon Town that Robins boss Paolo Di Canio compared him to the best goalkeeper ever, Peter Schmeichel.
The Magpies' No.1 made seven great saves to deny Swindon and Di Canio said Schmeichel would have been proud of his point-blank save from Robins' defender Darren Ward in the second half at Meadow Lane.
Bialkowski, 25, also brilliantly pushed a close-range shot from Swindon striker James Collins onto his right-hand post just minutes before Alan Judge hit the winner from 25 yards in the first half.
It was his best performance for Notts, since joining them on a three-year deal in the summer, but the Pole was modest.

"All of the team played really well. I saved a few shots, but that's my job," he said.
"There were a few quite difficult ones because of the weather conditions, but I keep trying my best in every game and lucky for us we won it.
"Judgey played really well and scored a fantastic goal so I'm happy for him because he's a great lad.
"It is a massive thing for us to win and we're really happy."
It was the Magpies' second shut-out in five days, after their goalless draw at Preston North End.
"It's been a fantastic week. I was really happy with the clean sheet against Preston and now Swindon, it's brilliant for me. I just want to keep going," added Bialkowski.
It was also their first home league win in two months.
Notts had lost to Stevenage, Tranmere Rovers and Doncaster Rovers and drawn against Bournemouth and Crawley Town before facing the Robins.
"Everyone was talking about our home form, which wasn't the best, so we're happy to get the three points," added Bialkowski. "It was a massive game.
"We didn't play at our best, but we got the three points."
