Stack had not saved a spot kick all season but dramatically kept out Joel Grant's last-minute effort to ensure Barnet won their last-ever match at Underhill 1-0 against Wycombe.

"My heart sank," he said. "It's not an ideal scenario. We were 1-0 up and I hadn't had much to do for the entire game.

"We like to throw up surprises but I was gutted when he pointed to the spot. However, I am a confident goalkeeper and I believe on my day I am capable of saving anyone's penalty.

"Before I came to Barnet I had a good penalty-saving record but I have faced 11 penalties this season and that is the first one I have saved.

"It was disappointing earlier in the season, but I did always say I would save an important one!"

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
