The goalkeeper was the hero of the World Cup qualification campaign as he saved a penalty in the second leg at home to Bahrain - a spot kick that, had it been converted, would have sent the West Asians to South Africa instead.

The shot-stopper, with stints in England with Walsall and Bradford City and Scotland with St. Johnstone, is normally the second choice goalkeeper but with number one Glen Moss suspended for the first two matches of the competition, Paston should be behind the sticks for at least 180 minutes.
