Kane Pleased With First Posh Goal

18 March 2013

Kane Ferdinand netted his first goal for Posh in the win at Blackpool.

By his own admission, Kane Ferdinand's winner at Bloomfield Road against Blackpool was a tad fortunate, but the 1-0 victory was vital in the quest to avoid relegation from the npower Championship.

Not that the move and connection to Tommy Rowe's header across goal following a Jack Payne cross was not perfectly created, it was the direction of the effort that Ferdinand admits was fortunate.

'To be honest, it wasn't the cleanest connection and I was a bit fortunate that it went in via the keeper's legs, but I am not at all concerned by that, it was a great feeling to get my first Peterborough goal.

'It was even better that it was the winner. Tommy did really well to head it into my path and I just timed my run and met it as best that I could.

'I like to get forward and hopefully I can score a few more goals between now and the end of the season. When I was at Southend, I played in an attacking midfield position, but I like to get up and down and the aim is obviously to stay in the team.

'It was a really battling win, the lads dug in and we are in good form at the minute. We have a bit of a break now and then face Cardiff City, which will be a massive game,' Ferdinand said.

Posh boss Darren Ferguson was pleased with the goal and revealed that it is something that has been worked on in training.

'I don't want to take all of the credit obviously, but it is something we have tried to work on in training, to get Kane breaking in between the lines and getting into the box and he did it well,' Ferguson said.
