Scott McGleish, who is on loan from Bristol Rovers, has put his hand up to take penalties, should Lawrie Sanchez decide to strip McLeod of the role
Barnet striker, Scott McGleish, who is on loan from Bristol Rovers has put his hand up to take penalties after team-mate Izale McLeod missed his third spot-kick of the season.
The League Two top scorer fired his penalty wide against Torquay on Friday night and it proved costly as the Bees were beaten 1-0 thanks to a goal from Danny Stevens in the second half.
Manager Lawrie Sanchez admitted after the game that they would be having a meeting as to who would take penalties in future and the former Leyton Orient man was willing to step up to the plate.
“I’m always happy taking penalties,” he told London24. “That’s down to the manager. We’ll see who is designated them.
“I would put my hand up but so would others. I’ve taken penalties all my career.”
The 38-year-old, who has played over 700 games in his career, scored nine goals in 32 games before moving to Underhill on loan.
