GEADS POST POSH



Aiden McGeady chatted to the press after the point at Peterborough and the challenges ahead in our push for promotion…


TOUGH

“Tough game, really difficult conditions, obviously the pitch didn’t have a lot of grass on it, it was dry, not really conducive to football. I think we controlled most of the possession, went close on a few occasions in both halves and then their goal was against the run of play, but it sparked us into life to be honest. Ultimately in the end a draw is probably a fair result, it keeps our unbeaten run going and it's still in our hands, which is the main thing.”


GOAL

“It was a good free kick but if you get it over the wall, you've always got a chance, that's the main thing. It wasn't right in the corner, but I'll take the goal and in terms of the timing of it, it was a big goal, especially in terms of today and possibly how the season will progress because I think if we lost that game today, it would have been a big dent in our promotion hopes so taking the draw and if we win our game in hand we still go above Peterborough. I expect things from myself, goals, assists etc. but to be honest I'm just happy to be playing again. I've already spoken about it a bit before, but I've had a difficult year so I'm just happy to be back playing and to be part of a team that hopefully, if we keep going the way we're going we'll be successful this season.”


CHARLTON NEXT

“We can't get ahead of ourselves. We've played better previously than we have done today, but sometimes you need to grind out these results, it's a difficult place to come, I mean since I've been here, I don’t think we've won at Peterborough, it's a difficult place to come, extra difficult with the state of the pitch and the wind today, it wasn't an easy game to play in and, you know, a point is better than none. Obviously, I know most of the lads from Charlton from last season, good set of lads but ultimately, I don't have any allegiances to Charlton. My spell with them last season was good for me to go there and play with what happened at Sunderland under the old manager. But on Saturday, we'll be looking to win that game.”
