York City striker Richard Brodie will have the final decision as to whether he will take the club’s next penalty.

Brodie’s previously unblemished record was finally broken last week when Mansfield Town keeper Alan Marriott kept out his eighth penalty of the campaign.

The Minstermen still went on to win, but their England ‘C’ international striker Brodie is now without a goal in his last nine appearances.

“Just because he`s missed one penalty should not overshadow the fact that he`s tucked seven away,” manager Martin Foyle told The Press.

“He struck it well at Mansfield, but the `keeper read it.

“Teams do their homework and it will be up to him whether he changes what he does if he takes another one.

“I would never blame a penalty taker, though, because you would be surprised how many players don`t want to take them.”
