ROB Elliot might be in the business of stopping goals - but the Accrington Stanley keeper is convinced he will score one before the end of the season.
The Charlton on-loan goalie has been a hero for the Reds pulling off some stunning saves - including four penalty stops.
But the teenager - who turns 20 next month - is tipping himself to be celebrating at the other end before the season's out.
"I have just got this feeling that I will score - I want to. I will run up for a corner or something and give the gaffer a heart-attack but I have this feeling that I will do it."
He almost found the back of the net at Crawley when he tried to catch the keeper off the line.
"I was about five yards off it - I was so close," he said.
Elliot will certainly be celebrating more than anyone if he does it but boss John Coleman will just be hoping he keeps up his performances at the other end. His feet kept out an Andy Bishop effort to stop York going 2-0 up on Saturday and then he denied Bishop from the spot in the final minute of the 4-2 win.
"I just have this feeling with penalties," said Elliot. "I just have this knack of guessing where they are going to put it. I have my own technique and always seem to guess right."
Elliot, who is currently in talks with Premier side Charlton about his contract which ends in the summer, has come to Stanley's rescue on numerous occasion.
But he is still beating himself up for a mistake leading to the first goal against Southport in the Reds shock loss.
"It was good to have my usual steady game against York after my mistake against Southport and it seemed the season was slipping away.
"So it was good to get back to normal and the penalty save was good for my confidence.
"It was a weird game against York as I went from wanting to go home at half-time to jumping up and down at the end. I have never gone through such extremes in a game before.
"The lads were fantastic in the second half and it was like a double celebration when we heard that Hereford has lost. Ian Craney ran past me at the end and told me and he was jumping up and down and I was.
"It was what we needed as we should never have let the 14 point gap slip.
"I think we are five or six wins better than other sides and now we are determined to finish the season with a sprint.
"We don't want to drag ourselves over the finishing line, we want to sprint across it so we won't let our standards drop."
He admitted that Coleman's half-time team talk at York - with Stanley trailing 2-1 - was the turning point.
"The gaffer is a good motivator. He is one of the best at pre-match, half-time and post-match team talks.
"He is really motivational and he comes out with his little phrases and comments - some I have never heard of before - but they work! He can scream and shout if he needs to but he can also sit down and talk and tell us where we are going wrong."
The keeper is prepared for what could be a busy game tomorrow as Grays Athletic are scoring for fun.
"We played them in a pre-season friendly when I was at Charlton and they are a good team - they beat us.
"But it is no fluke that we beat them earlier on in the season at their place and we will be confident we can put in a good performance. We want to finish the season with a good run of wins."
And he may just make a move to be the penalty hero at the other end.
"David Brown is the best penalty taker at the club and he should take them when he is on the pitch.
"But if he isn't then I want a turn. I think everyone else in the club has had a go this season so it must be my turn now!"
