PENALTY shootouts are the ultimate nerve-shredder - but Simon Moore was the coolest man in Griffin Park on Monday.
While it was hearts in mouths time for the Bees faithful, the young keeper insists he was looking forward to the spot-kick lottery against Swindon.
The former Southampton shot-stopper's save from Miles Storey proved the difference as Brentford converted all five penalties to finally decide this pulsating play-off semi-final and send Uwe Rosler's side to Wembley.
“It sums up our season really,” said Moore. “It has been an unbelievable season with so many highs and lows.
“Yesterday proved the team spirit we have here is unbelievable and we will take that confidence to Wembley and hopefully finish off the job.
“I felt so confident when it went to pens. I love penalty shoot-outs and I knew that I would save at least one.
“I watched videos of their two penalty takers this season but they got subbed off so it was pot-luck really. I felt very confident that I would save one.
“The boys’ penalties were absolutely brilliant. The amount of pressure that was on them and they were so cool."
He added: “You couldn’t write it. A penalty against Doncaster, a penalty at Swindon in the last game and now a penalty shootout.
“Penalties are a cruel thing but we have felt the elation that can come with it. We deserve it after the disappointments we have had this season.
“We are all buzzing but we will bring ourselves back down to finish the job off in a few weeks.”
