Grant on Posh win, desire for more goals & Diangana’s display

KG celebration Posh

Karlan Grant says Albion “got the job done” on Saturday afternoon as they returned to winning ways with a 3-0 victory over Peterborough United.

Three goals in the last 12 minutes from Cedric Kipre, Grant himself and finally Grady Diangana secured three crucial points for Valérien Ismaël’s men at The Hawthorns.

And Karlan insists the key to success was remaining patient and staying calm under pressure.

KG scored his tenth of the season on Saturday

He said: “It was a special day at The Hawthorns.

“It was a big opportunity to get back to winning ways and we did that. We left it late, but we got the job done.

“We knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but it’s nice to win 3-0.

“I know the crowd find it difficult at times when we haven’t got the breakthrough as early as we perhaps should have done, but we’re professionals at the end of the day and we just had to keep going to get the goals our performance deserved.

“We were going at them in the first half and then the space started to open up in the second 45. We kept going and the last two goals we scored were balls in behind because they had to come out at us after we got the opener.

“I’m delighted to get the win.

“I’ve hit ten goals now, but I want more. I don’t want to settle. I want as many as I can get.

“The more I can get to help the team, the more positive results we will get because defensively we are very solid.”

Grady scored Albion's third on Saturday

Winger Diangana came off the bench early in the second 45 and delivered an impressive showing.

Grant and Grady have been friends since childhood and Albion’s second goalscorer on the day was “buzzing” to see his team-mate perform so well.

“I’m buzzing for Grady. I’ve known him since I was a kid.

“I know what he can do. It’s been tough for him because he’s been low on confidence, but today he came on and that was the Grady from two years ago from when he first came here.

“I told him that if he can’t get confidence from that then I don’t know what will give him confidence.

“He came on, got at his man, was sharp and got his goal. I’m delighted for him.”
