There is also another record we could aim to beat.

The British all-time record is held by Chris Woods, who currently holds it while playing for Rangers during the 86-87 season when he went unbeaten for 1,196 minutes.

It was on Sky Sports News but I wasn't sure how long for but found it here; The Guardian

The Guardian said:
The 5-0 thrashing of West Bromwich Albion last night was the 11th game in which Van der Sar has not been beaten and if he keeps out Everton for 72 minutes on Saturday he will break the Football League record of 1,103 minutes, set by Steve Death for Reading in 1979.

Should Van der Sar make it 12 consecutive shut-outs he would have the opportunity to topple the British record for all competitive games, established by Chris Woods of Rangers, who went unbeaten for 1,196 minutes in 1986-87. Van der Sar, who has not conceded a league goal since a 2-1 win for Arsenal on 8 November, would need to keep out West Ham United for 75 minutes at Upton Park on Sunday week.
But, I won't be that greedy. It's been a fantastic acheivement so far, and I would accept the Football League record ;) :)
