Steve: "We Showed Real Battling Qualities"

21 October 2014

Steve Davis gives us his reaction from the Alexandra Stadium after Posh win

After the 1-0 win at Gresty Road, Steve told us: "

Steve Davis was delighted with his players application and desire after they fought gallantly to record a third successive win over promotion chasing Peterborough United. Marcus Haber slotted the only goal of the game via the penalty spot on the half an hour mark.

Results are very important to us at the moment. I was really encouraged with the 1-0 because we haven’t been able to sustain results over the past so going two games winning and then managing the third one is great credit to the players.

“They worked very hard to this position and it elevates us up, it’s very very close down there now. It’s amazing what a couple of weeks does in football, it can change so quickly.

“Peterborough were very good. They’ve got some excellent players and when they went to ten men they were still good. Brad could’ve and should’ve finished it off for us at the end, but we’re earning our fortune and we’re scrapping hard. They’re a good side and we’ve done well to overcome a team of that calibre.

“The penalty has proved the winning incident. I didn’t see it at first but I watched it again in the changing room at half time and you could clearly see that he pulled him back. There could’ve been no complaints about the second red either but I’ll let them talk about all that.”
