Barnet goalkeeper Rob Beckwith has expressed his delight after helping to seal victory over Swindon in the FA Cup on Tuesday.
The third round replay at Underhill finished 1-1 after extra-time and Barnet won 2-0 on penalties to set up a home tie with Bristol Rovers.
Beckwith had little to do as Swindon's first three penalty takers all missed the target, but he made a fine save from Miguel Comminges to clinch the shoot-out success.
"I'm normally good at penalties and there's not really any pressure on goalkeepers," Beckwith told Sky Sports News.
"We were under a lot of pressure towards the end of the game so it was nice to get to penalties and we thought we had a chance.
"It was great to actually save one. I don't know if I'd have been a hero if they'd missed all four.
"We don't really practice penalties. We had five penalties on Monday before the game and I didn't save one."
Barnet are currently in the bottom half of the League Two table but Beckwith is hopeful of pushing upwards.
He added: "We've still got a few games in hand so hopefully we can win them and get back on track - start looking up."
