Sinclair: I can score goals

Emile Sinclair is determined to prove he can bring more than pace to the Peterborough United attack, as he looks to fill the void left by the summer sale of Craig Mackail-Smith.

The former Posh hitman left London Road in favour of a move to Npower Championship leaders Brighton, leaving manager Darren Ferguson short on forward options.

He opted to move for the ex-Macclesfield striker, who netted 17 goals in 86 appearances for the Silkmen before signing a three-year deal with Peterborough on transfer deadline day.

The 23-year-old made his debut in the weekend defeat to Hull City, but gave insight into his desire and ambition to prove he can cut it in the second tier.


"Everyone knows I'm very quick and people like to talk about my pace," Sinclair told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire. "But I'm here to show I can score goals not just run around."

Reflecting on his time in the lower echelons of English football, he spoke positively about the footballing education he had received until now, but felt the time was right to test himself at a higher level, and believes he has joined a club that will give him the best opportunity to succeed.

"You can tell the difference straight away and when I first came on it was hard to keep up with the pace of the game, but I'm sure I'll soon get used to it," he continued.

"I have been a fan of Peterborough and the way they've played in recent seasons, [and] just coming here and joining in training you can see how well they keep the ball."
