SHRIMPER MULLIN IS SPOT-ON

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

PAUL Mullin in­sists he is More­cambe’s man from 12 yards af­ter he proved prac­tice re­ally does make per­fect when it comes to penalty kicks.

The 20-year-old has been work­ing with Shrimpers keeper Barry Roche in train­ing and it looks to have paid div­i­dends if his 93rd-minute spot-kick against New­port is any­thing to go by.

“Last year when we were get­ting penal­ties I al­ways put my name for­ward to take them,” said the striker. “Peo­ple were in front of me then but now I’ve got the job.

“It’s a free shot at goal. I’ve been work­ing on them with Baz in train­ing and thank­fully it’s worked. Hope­fully I can keep scor­ing them.”
