Goalkeeping supremo Bob Wilson yesterday told a court hearing match-fixing allegations that there was not the "slightest hint" that Bruce Grobbelaar had behaved improperly or suspiciously in Liverpool and Southampton games he had studied. He also said he had seen nothing untoward in 19 videos featuring the former Wimbledon keeper Hans Segers.

Mr Wilson, the ex-Arsenal and Scotland keeper and trainer of England's top goalkeeper David Seaman, explained goalkeeping techniques and talked the Winchester Crown Court jury through goalmouth incidents in five soccer matches involving Mr Grobbelaar.

He said Mr Grobbelaar had no chance with any of the goals put past him in Liverpool's 3-0 defeat at Newcastle in November, 1993 or their 3-3 draw with Manchester United the following January
