Hill Prepares for Posh

1 October 2012

Reds Manager on Posh

Reds Manager Keith Hill met with the press ahead of tomorrow night’s home clash with Peterborough United.

“Three point-performance – one-point result, it’s as simple as that,” Said Hill of Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Ipswich Town. “63.4% possession, 20 shots at goal, 494 passes in comparison to Ipswich’s 178 passes – it speaks volumes for the performance.”

“It was a great learning opportunity while not losing the game on Saturday.”

Turning his attention to the Posh, Hill said, “They’re very attacking. They like to score goals. They’re very good – a very dangerous side.

“I think you can never take anything for granted, home form or away form. You’re always worried about what’s around the corner in the Championship.

“It’s just madness this league. It’s like visiting Alice in Wonderland and the Wizard of Oz all in one. It’s just weird. It’s very difficult to work out, it’s very complicated but exceptionally competitive.

“With respect to recruitment and the money that they’ve spent on players – Peterborough have spent a lot of money on players. It’s a business template they’ve got which is a good once; they recruit for good money and they sell for better money then they reinvest that money into the football squad.

“I’m sure Darren would have liked to have retained some of the players that they’ve sold over the years and they probably would have been in a better position at this moment in time. People tend to forget that very quickly and it’s shame because Darren Ferguson’s an excellent manager.”
