Aaron Williams netted his first Football League goal in the defeat to Port Vale.

Striker Aaron Williams scored his first goal in the Football League and his first in the colours of Peterborough United during the 3-2 defeat to Port Vale, but admitted the effort didn't mean as much because of the result.

Williams fired home from a tight angle to put Posh 2-0 ahead, but a second half fightback saw the visitors take all three points.

Williams said: "It is great to obviously score my first goal for the club, but to be honest, the three points were far important than personal accolades. Having said that, the hardest goal to score is always the first one, so it is nice to be off and running.


"I tried to hit it early and I think that is what caught the keeper out, he took a step to the right and couldn’t get back across. The manager has been encouraging me to get my shots off early and I was delighted to get the goal.


“I had two chances before I converted one to score and I missed them, but I tried to keep my head up and keep going and thankfully I put the third chance away.


"Myself and Tom Nichols have developed a good understanding from training together and we were able to take that onto the pitch. The more you work together, the better that becomes."

Posh are next in action on Saturday Graham Westley's men travel to Doncaster Rovers.
