Hartlepool boss Mick Wadsworth believes he could have the next Joe Hart in his ranks after Jake Kean's stunning display in the 1-0 win over Huddersfield.
Anthony Sweeney hit the winner two minutes before the break when he turned in Evan Horwood's cross.
But on-loan Blackburn keeper Kean was the star of the show with fine saves from Gary Roberts, Benik Afobe, Peter Clarke and Anthony Pilkington.
Kean's temporary stint ends on January 4 and Wadsworth said: "He can go all the way. He is a bit special.
"I worked with Joe Hart when he was 17 at Shrewsbury and I can see Blackburn have a hell of a player on their hands.
"It would be foolish to say he can be as good as Joe. But Joe is the best keeper I have worked with in my career. Jake has some great qualities and what happens next is up to him."
