    You seem to be forgetting that after his first miss from the spot, he scored with his second penalty in the same game !

    It was the other way round - the miss was for the hat-trick.

    I’d go back to Sweeney he scored some very good pens before his couple of misses he strikes a dead ball very cleanly and powerful..technically Fortes effort on Saturday was very poor you can easily see how he got underneath it too much, his run up was all wrong for the way he struck the ball.

    Alternatively, what's Barry McConnell up to these days? Perhaps we could have him on the bench, ready to be brought on especially for penalty taking duties.

    Pick your spot. Whack it.

    Or, watch the keeper. Roll it to the opposite side if he moves. Easy

    A nice simple distillation of all of the above.

    Positive mental attitude. Alan Shearer said the same. It's the best possible chance you'll get in any game to score. Embrace it.

    Keep it simple.

    Was always a fan of Reuben Reid’s method. Hit it really really hard.

    I think it was Reuben Reid who said, having converted a last-minute winning penalty a couple of seasons back, that he was happy to take penalties because he knew he could handle it if he missed.

    I had someone try that method to me in goal once - hit it hard and high, straight down the middle.

    I stood there and tipped it over the bar.

    Ian's method is probably closest to being "correct", although of course that relies on you being able to put the ball exactly where you want to, and to ignore the outside pressures involved in taking a penalty.

    Forte was unlucky ..however the 'miss' will probably dent his confidence.

    Why not give the responsibility to Archie Collins ? ...his maturity shines through...as did in the penalty shoot out against Ipswich.
