Forrester Pleased With First Goal In English Football

26 September 2015

Midfielder Chris Forrester scored his first goal in English football as Posh ran out 2-0 winners at Bradford City.

He admitted he might extend the yardage on his first goal in English football, but you wouldn't begrudge Chris Forrester a little bit of excitement after the midfielder netted his first goal in English football.

The former St. Patricks Athletic man pounced on a kind deflection to squeeze the ball under the body of former Liverpool shot-stopper Brad Jones to secure all three points for Graham Westley in his first game in charge of the club.

'It was probably around 10-yards, but I might text my friends and tell them it was a bit further out! It wasn't the best goal that I have scored, but it is up there in terms of importance and it was a great feeling to see the ball find the back of the net.

'I was actually a little bit disappointed with my own performance, but it was obviously important that the team got the points and credit to the rest of the players and the management team for that.

'I feel I have settled quite quickly into life in Peterborough both on and off the pitch. Players like Jack Collison and Michael Bostwick really know how to welcome you into a dressing room and I think I am a tad surprised how settled I am already.

'It is about progression for me now. The new gaffer has given me lots of encouragement and the way that we play the game really suits me. I have played across the midfield and that versatility can be important.

'I just like getting on the ball from the centre backs and then giving the ball to the more technical players like Erhun and Marcus and get us higher up the pitch. I am really enjoying it at the minute,' Forrester said.
