If Brisbane Roar can sneak into the finals series this weekend against Western Sydney Wanderers, it will be largely down to the phenomenal form of Young.

The English-national leads the league in save percentage - 75% - and is also highly-rated in big-chances saved and total saves.

To make matters more interesting for goalkeeping afficionados, Wanderers' Vedran Janjetovic isn't far behind. But Young may have a slight advantage, he's looking to the very best to change the one-percenters. 

“The big thing I have been trying to focus on is the moments in the game where you have to stand up and answer the questions. So far it has been good, but there is a lot left in this season and I want to be able to keep answering those questions," Young told a-league.com.au

“I like to watch clips of keepers who have been so consistent for so long, like Gianluigi Buffon, or even David de Gea at the moment.

“I look at where they’re making saves and how they’re making them. I saw De Gea had very little to do in his game on the weekend, but suddenly he had two saves in about a minute and he just turned it on.

“It’s quite inspiring.”

Brisbane currently sit sixth, a reasonable turnaround following a devastating start to the season that had coach John Aloisi under immense pressure. 

A win against the Wanderers would guarantee the Roar a finals place, putting them five points clear of seventh place with a far-superior goal difference. 

“It’s important that we focus on how to keep this momentum going. It’s all about performing well – if we do, we obviously have more chance of winning the game. It’s all about out-performing the Wanderers and we’re confident we can do that this weekend," Young said.

“If we keep putting in good performances and getting positive results, we don’t have to worry about other games.

"We’ve taken it one game at a time this season and if we stick to that strategy, I’m sure it will be a good result for us.”
