Holloway Hoping To Continue Momentum

27 January 2017

Striker Aaron Amadi-Holloway wants to continue the momentum built up on Tuesday night and take it into tomorrow’s game against Bradford City.

Athletic recorded a 2-0 win over Peterborough United in midweek courtesy of goals from Paul Green and Ryan McLaughlin.

Holloway assisted Latics’ second goal and he wants to keep the momentum going ahead of this weekend’s game against the Bantams.

He said: “All games are going to be tough in this division. They are doing very well but hopefully after Tuesday’s win we can keep that push going.”

A bumper crowd of 7,224 saw Athletic beat Peterborough United on Tuesday night and Holloway admitted the fans really played their part.

“The more fans you have got, the louder the game is and it makes a massive difference on the pitch,” he commented.

"It was a great game. It was a scrappy game, all games will be scrappy but we just need to get points on the board. 

“I think we were the better team, created the most chances so hopefully on Saturday do the same thing.”

The striker has already showed supporters what he can do: “Hopefully I can do my best and that will be enough,” he said. 

"I want to get some goals, get some assists and get as many points. I will give 100% all the time, work until I’ve got nothing left and hopefully that’s enough.”

Holloway signed a long term contract with the club and he was delighted to do that.

“It’s a good thing for me,” he admitted. “I needed stability and the club felt it a good thing to give me a two-and-a-half year deal as well so hopefully I can do well."
