Karlan: We showed good character

12 March 2018

On-loan striker Karlan Ahearne-Grant believes Reds showed commendable character to claim a point against Morecambe on Saturday.

The Charlton loanee scored his fourth goal since joining the club in January as Reds drew 1-1 with the Shrimps to extend their unbeaten home run to six games.
Ahearne-Grant converted Dannie Bulman's low cross in the third minute of stoppage time after the visitors had taken the lead two minutes earlier.
"It was a strange game, we seemed to be attacking all the time," said Karlan.
"Their keeper made some good saves and we kept pushing, even after they scored.
"We showed good character to be honest. We could have just accepted it but we kept pushing and in the end it was a good point having been 1-0 down in the 91st minute."
Reds dropped to 12th in the League 2 table but are still just five points off the play-off places with ten games to go.
On Saturday we make the long trip to Carlisle United and also have games against play-off contenders Wycombe, Swindon, Coventry, Exeter and Mansfield still to play.
"We'll prepare well and look forward to Saturday," added Karlan. "It's a long way and we need to get something up there. They are going well and it should be a decent game."
