Sinclair gunning for Posh goals

Peterborough United striker Emile Sinclair believes he can add more than just pace to the Posh attack.

The former Macclesfield man, who made his Posh debut against Hull on Saturday, has a reputation for being quick around the pitch.

"Everyone knows I'm very quick and people like to talk about my pace," he told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

"But I'm here to show I can score goals not just run around."

The 23-year-old scored 17 goals in 86 appearances for the Silkmen, but signed a three-year deal at London Road on deadline day.

Sinclair has limited experience of playing in the Championship with Forest and is ready to make the step back up after his time in League Two with Macclesfield.

"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 said.

Posh were the top scorers in League One last season and have already put seven goals past Ipswich since promotion back into the second tier.

Sinclair says he is pleased to be joining a side who place such emphasis on scoring goals.

"I have been a fan of Peterborough and the way they've played in recent seasons," he said.

"Just coming here and joining in training you can see how well they keep the ball."
