He was named in PFA Championship Team of the Year and awarded Wolverhampton Wonderers Player of the Year in his first full season for the club as he kept 19 clean sheets in 46 appearances. His time with Wolverhampton Wonderers saw the Welsh goalie keep 42 clean sheets in 166 appearances, with both highs and lows aplenty, winning promotion to the Premier League in 2008/09 season as Wolves won the EFL Championship, and suffering relegation in the 2011/12 Premier League season.
