Tim Krul is approaching an elite club for Norwich City goalkeepers.
The Dutch international is five appearances away from reaching one hundred matches in a Canaries shirt - but where does he rank with other modern day goalkeepers who have hit the same landmark.
Krul currently sits on 95 appearances and, if he plays the next five matches, will hit his century in the Canaries fixture with Sheffield Wednesday in three weeks time.
Since Kevin Keelan, only six (including Keelan) have matched this feat. The Dutch shot-stopper is in line to become the sixth later this year.
Krul is popular amongst City supporters and is the current holder of the Barry Butler Memorial Trophy after a series of impressive performances in the Premier League.

Bryan Gunn, Robert Green and John Ruddy are three goalkeepers that have also surpassed a century of games for Norwich City.
