All three play-offs in the English professional leagues this year were decided in extra time or on penalties. Czech goalkeeper Tomáš Holý was at the successful final of League Two from the point of view of Carlisle United, who saved the progress in the penalty shootout.
Carlisle entered the match more actively, with the first header still cleared by the goalkeeper. On the other side, Tomas Holý capitulated from the first shot and goal in the 34th minute. Or rather, it was a centre that was knocked into the net by defender Alexander Melish.
After the change of sides, Akil Wright had the second goal, but his shot flew wide. Carlisle’s penalty for unproductivity came in the 84th minute, with Melish again celebrating success with a ground shot. This time he headed it into the right goal.
In extra time, Czech goalkeeper Holý made his first appearance, deflecting Jack Stretton’s shot from outside the box with a reflexive leap. Carlisle’s next big chance was only sent into the crossbar and it was on to penalty kicks.
Whilst all five scorers celebrated success for Carlisle, Stockport came under pressure in the second series, with Ryan Rydel being saved by Holý. Thanks to the productivity of his teammates, the Czech goalkeeper was the hero and the architect of the promotion to League One.
Along with Carlis, three other teams, all of them directly, were promoted to the third highest competition. Leyton Orient became the victor of the league, Stevenage finished second and Northampton will now kick off League One.
Bare is indispensable to Carlisle in the long term. As far as League Two is concerned, he has played all 49 rounds this season, conceding just 46 goals. He has kept a clean sheet on an incredible 20 occasions.
Holý has been trying his luck in the British Isles since 2017. From Sparta he made his way to Gillingham, then via Ipswich, Cambridge and Port Vale he arrived in Carlisle, where he is experiencing the peak of his career at the age of 31.
