Kwame Poku promises that there is more to come after Peterborough United end losing run
Posh kept their hopes of progress in the EFL Trophy alive with a 3-0 victory and one of the stars was Kwame Poku. The 21-year-old was employed on the right of a front three and although not credited with the assists for the first two goals, provided important contributions that led to them.
Posh now host Port Vale on Saturday (September 24) looking to use the momentum to pick up points in League One for the first time in five matches and Poku has promised that there is more to come from Posh and himself.
Speaking after the win, he said: “It was a good performance and it was important that we got the win ahead of Saturday to stop the drought. I’m happy with the way I played, there’s more improvement to go, but I was pleased with my performance.
“We have a good team and if we just focus on the basics then the results will come.”
Poku also staked a claim to be one of the side’s set-piece takes with his corner that led to Josh Knight’s opening goal and was also involved with taking set-pieces against Bolton with Joe Ward starting on the bench.
Poku’s return to the side, after a calf injury picked up before the first day of the season, had happened to coincide with the start of the club’s winless run but the forward has backed both himself and his teammates to now start to hit their stride.
He has now appeared in all of the club’s last seven matches in all competitions.
He added: “It was important that I’ve shown the gaffer that I can take set-pieces going forward and that I am reliable in all areas.
“Every time I get into the final third, I have to show that I can get goals and assists. We’ve got lots of goals around the team, as long as I’m performing and creating then the results will come.
“I have to stick to what I’m good at, getting on the ball, and I can’t shy away from it.
“Going forward, I have to practice playing as both a number ten and a right winger but I think I’m capable at both and I enjoy playing at both.”
