Mon­cur: ‘If I keep play­ing, I will keep scor­ing’

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

Ge­orge Mon­cur’s two goals on his full de­but was the Posh high­light from the dis­ap­point­ing 2-2 draw with Port Val eat the ABAX Sta­dium.

Mon­cur, who is on loan at Posh from Cham­pi­onship side Barns­ley un­til Jan­uary, said: “I’m de­lighted to score two goals, but I’m dis­ap­pointed with the draw.

“I try and get shots off in every game and I’m sure if I keep play­ing I’ll get more goals, but more im­por­tantly we need to get some wins.

“At­tack­ing-wise, we will cause any team prob­lems. I think we are re­ally solid at the back, but it’s just about game man­age­ment to­wards the end.

“Once we get that I don’t think they’ll be any stop­ping us. When we scored the sec­ond goal we pan­icked a bit and ev­ery­one was all over the place.

“It’s some­thing for all of us to workon. It’s just not just the de­fence.

“We all need to be bet­ter at look­ing af­ter the ball.”

Right-back Michael Smith, who be­came a fa­ther in the week lead­ing up to the match pointed out Posh would have been top of the table, but for con­ced­ing late goals in the last two home matches.

Smith said: “We have to work on see­ing games out bet­ter,

“We will al­ways score goals, but clearly we have to be bet­ter at stop­ping op­po­nents scor­ing as well.

“With­out those two late goals in the last two home matches we would have been top of the table right now so it shows how close we are to be­ing suc­cess­ful.

“We are play­ing good foot­ball, the mood in the camp is bril­liant and we can’t wait for the next match to come along.”
