Hourihane on Posh Visit

24 November 2015

Reds midfielder Conor Hourihane spoke to the press ahead of tonight’s trip to London Road to face Peterborough United.


Hourihane was pleased to get the win at the weekend but much like Head Coach Lee Johnson, he wanted to ensure the Reds remained focused now and get back up the league table.


“It was very satisfying to win and much needed.” Said Hourihane. “In the first half we played well and the game should have been done and dusted by half time.


“We were disappointed to concede but we got that little bit of luck on Saturday that we haven’t been getting. It was a big goal and a big win that we needed.


“I felt that during the losing run we’ve created chances which we haven’t taken and that was the same on Saturday. We went 1-0 up and we were comfortable, but conceding was disappointing. We stuck at it though and their 'keeper will 

be disappointed but luckily Longy (Kevin Long) was there to smash it in.


“I thought I was due a goal, I had been injured which was frustrating. I could have had one the week before against Port vale but to see one go in was pleasing, it was important to start leading in games.”


Hourihane feels morale within the squad has never dropped despite the run of defeats the club suffered, and gave his thoughts as to why, as well as what he knows about tonight's opposition, Peterborough United.


“I know we’re a young squad but it doesn’t seem to get as down as it could,” continued Hourihane. “The run we were on was hurting everyone but it’s on to the next one now.


“Peterborough are a good side and they had a good win at the weekend. It’ll be a good game and we’re going in with some confidence now so hopefully we can get a result.


“Anyone can beat anyone in this league. Whoever is the most consistent is at the top, but hopefully Tuesday is our day and we go there and pick up the three points.”
