Donohue: "We showed great character to get back into it."

Dion Donohue scored his first ever goal for Chesterfield during the 3-3 draw with Peterborough on Tuesday night.

The Welshman netted the Spireites third goal to draw the team’s level in the second half, and was pleased to score his first goal and also praised his team-mate for the assist. 

“Sylvan’s done well to pull it back to me. I took a touch and just thought have a go and luckily it went in for me,” said Donohue. 

It was an entertaining, end to end game full of excitement. The Posh went in to the break 3-2 up and the 23 year-old got his first taste of a crazy game. 

“I don’t think I have been involved in a game like that,” he commented.  “Five goals in the first half, you don’t really see that. It was disappointing to concede three goals in the whole game but definitely in the first half but we showed great character to get back into it.” 

The former Sutton Coldfield Town man has been seen in a number of roles this season, but was allowed to play further forward and felt he did well in the second half although is frustrated he hasn’t scored a second. 

He said: “I think first half I could have done better.

“It was a disappointing first half all round, but personally I think I could have done better and second half I’ve got the goal and I think I should have had another one. 

“The defender’s more or less used both hands to save it so how the ref hasn’t given a penalty I don’t know but it was nice to play further up the pitch.” 

Gary Caldwell’s men turn their attentions to a trip to Bristol Rovers on Saturday, needing maximum points, but go into it on the back of two draws and good performances. And now Donohue wants to build on the positives. 

“Definitely, it’s two games that we haven’t been beaten now so we can only build on that on Saturday and hopefully get the win,” he added.
