Interview with Forfar Athletic striker Josh Peters

Josh Peters reckons he has never seen a dressing room as positive as the Loons’ at the moment as Forfar continued their unbeaten run with a 4-1 win over Stirling Albion.

The striker celebrated his League Two Player of the Month award with two goals and he hopes he can continue his scoring run of ten goals in eleven games in what is his first professional season.

Peters felt the side weren’t at their best in the first half but got going after the break and deserved the three points with the players determined to continue their excellent form.

He said: “It’s a brilliant result, we didn’t start off well but I think we’ve shown we tend to get stronger as the game goes on and we blew them away in the second half.”

“It’s such a positive outlook, I’ve never been in a dressing room like that. It’s a great winning mentality, even at half time when we were drawing; we know we didn’t start off the greatest but we went out for the second half up for it to go and win the game. We know we can beat any team when we’re on our day and we have confidence in each other so that helps a lot.”

The former Strathspey Thistle and Hibernian attacker received his Player of the Month award for August during the week and was in disbelief as to how well his first season has gone so far.

“Yeah, it capped off a great week, getting the player of the month award was an honour so hopefully I can just carry on scoring goals and more importantly getting results for the team. I can’t complain, it’s been a brilliant start. It’s my first professional season so I’ve got off to the best start; hopefully I can keep that going. It’s a great experience for me and a great starting point, I’m enjoying my football as well.”

The Loons were drawn at home to Welsh champions The New Saints in the fourth round of the Challenge Cup and while Peters cheekily claimed he wouldn’t have minded a trip down to the Shropshire based club, he knows it will be a tough test for the Loons, with both sides currently unbeaten in the league.

“I think it will be a different class of football; they’ve played Champions League before so it will be a test for us. We won’t make it easy for them, we’ve got a good home record and we’re unbeaten at home. It will be difficult but if we play as well as we can, we can pull off a shock result.”

“I wouldn’t have minded a wee away trip but I suppose it’s better for the club to host it. It’s an exciting tie, you don’t play different teams from different countries often so I’m excited to see what happens.”
