Ben Hamer does not practice facing penalties, despite an impressive record of four saves from six spot-kicks.
The on-loan keeper's latest success came in Brentford's 1-0 win over Barnet on Saturday, when he kept out Albert Adomah's effort from the spot.
It was just one of a string of fine saves which saw Hamer earn his side three points in the face of a second-half Barnet onslaught.
He said: "I've not been bad at penalties, four in six is a good ratio.
"But we don't specifically practice them in training. We have a few muck-abouts where I face some penalties, but nothing specific.
"I don't have a particular ritual for facing them either. I just stay big and try not to move too early.
"Sometimes you just have too be lucky too, and luckily their guy made it a bit obvious where he was going to place it.
"I didn't think it was a penalty anyway, it was a bit of a dive, so justice was done when I saved it."
It also meant a second successive clean sheet for Hamer and his back four, egding the keeper ever closer to his target of 14 shut-outs for the season.
And he reckons the problems Brentford had at centre-back at the start of the season, when Leigh Mills left two days before the start and a flurry of last-minute loan deals were signed, did not faze him.
Hamer said: "In a way, it does help if you have a settled back four and know who is going to be playing in front of you.
"But knew all about Alan Bennett from his time here last season, and Jamie Wilson has done extremely well.
"It's up to Bristol City and Reading on how long they'll be here for, but we also have lads like Mark Phillips and Karleigh Osborne who can come in and do a job."
Bees boss Andy Scott was full of praise for his young keeper, who he had no hesitation in bringing back for a second loan spell over the summer.
Despite a few errors in his first loan period last season, Scott saw enough talent in the Reading youngster to bring him back and install him as his first-choice keeper.
Scott said: "It wasn't just against Barnet I was impressed, Ben's attitude since he's been back has been first-class.
"He had some ups and downs last year, which helped build his character. But he was also fantastic for the majority of last year.
"His attitude has been spot on, and there's no reason why he can't go on to be a top keeper."
Hamer agreed with his gaffer's assessment that last season saw him grow as a keeper, adding: "I had a few knocks last year, but I've bought that experience I gained from it back with me."
