PLACIDE: “It’s My Job”

18 April 2018

Oldham Athletic goalkeeper Johny Placide has played down his role in Latics’ draw against Rochdale.

The Haiti number one saved a first half penalty from Joe Rafferty to deny the hosts taking the lead.

“A penalty is a penalty,” he said.

“Sometimes you are lucky and sometimes you are unlucky, I managed to save the penalty but the most important thing for us is that we came away with a point.

“I found the game very tough and very hard but I’m happy to get the point against Rochdale.

“I went the same way as the penalty against Gillingham, I was disappointed not to save that because I got a touch on the ball but I missed it so I’m very happy to save the penalty against Rochdale.”

Placide’s recent performances have seen him receive praise from the manager and supporters alike.

“I have been working hard and the most important thing is concentration,” the 30-year-old said.

“It’s my job to make saves for the team. I am going to continue to work hard so that I perform well in the final four games.

“Thank you to the fans, whenever we play away there are always a lot of fans and I’m very happy for them that we got a point.”
