Ahearne-Grant's Cup Disappointment
Karlan Ahearne-Grant has said it's all eyes to League One now following our exit from the FA Cup to Wimbledon.
With our Academy Graduate making it two goals in two games as he grabbed the equaliser at Kingsmeadow, he told the Official Site that it was bitterly disappointing to see them get a second half double and even though we are still involved in the EFL Trophy, the league has to now be our priority.
Speaking this week with the players back in training, he explained.
'We are focused on the league now. Obviously, we are disappointed to go out of the cup but the league is the bigger thing and we want to get promoted. Saturday is a big game and now hopefully we can push forward to it. Personally, I want to keep going and keep my little run of goalscoring form going. It was good to get another goal. I`m trying to be a fox in the box and the moment; it`s good that it`s paying off but at the same time it was disappointing to lose the game.'
Having found the net against Peterborough United at The Valley and saved a point, he admitted he went into Wimbledon confident.
'That goal gave me a lot of confidence and I came into the Wimbledon game feeling like I was going to score. I had an early chance with my left foot and I just knew I`d get another opportunity. It`s about being in the right place at the right time and luckily I was.'
'Not scoring for a long period was hard but I always believed in myself, hopefully people are starting to see that I`m trying to get into the right areas. Now I need to keep going.'
