Forster-Caskey fancies it. But who'll be on the spot if Albion get a penalty today?

Jake Forster-Caskey fires home from the spot at Swindon

...and enjoys the moment!

First published in Sport by

Two-goal Jake Forster-Caskey would be happy to be put on the spot again.

But Sami Hyypia wants to take time out to settle on a first-choice penalty taker.

Forster-Caskey struck twice at Swindon to see his side through to the third round of the Capital One Cup in midweek.

Albion need a regular penalty taker after the summer departure of David Lopez.

Paddy McCourt, Adrian Colunga and Joao Teixeira were possible contenders on the pitch in extra-time on Tuesday.

Forster-Caskey said: “I didn’t really speak to anyone about it but I was confident I was going to score.

“I picked up the ball and knew where I wanted to put it and luckily for me they both went in.”

Hyypia planned to get his spot-kick candidates together in training.

He said: “We can’t have a fight on the pitch over who is taking a penalty!”

He might fancy it, but I'm not convinced he'll be on the pitch!
