Wycombe Wanderers defender Luke Leahy has revealed his ‘practice had paid off’ when it comes to taking penalties.

Three of the six goals that the 31-year-old has scored this season have come from 12-yards, which includes bagging two spot-kicks in the recent 2-2 draw against Oxford United.

Additionally, he scored 10 times from the spot during his two years at Shrewsbury, and he believes it’s down to routine.

Speaking after the draw against Wanderers’ Thames Valley rivals, he said: “It is something that I practise a lot and that has paid off, and I just knew what the keeper was going to do when I stuttered.

“I’m very proud to have scored two penalties but am disappointed to not get the win.”

On his new position, which has seen Leahy move from a defensive midfielder to a left-sided centre back, he added: “I got 10 last season and nine the year before but that was from playing in midfield.

“I’ve got to switch my mentality now as I’m in the left-hand side of defence, but if I can score more goals, then great.”

As it stands, Leahy is currently Wanderers’ highest scorer this season.
