Before today's match against Chelsea, Peterborough's Chris Forrester said that there would be no holding back against the Premier League leaders at Stamford Bridge.

"We won't be scared of them," the 24-year-old Dubliner told Miguel Delaney in today's Sunday Independent. "There's no point in going and trying to defend for 90 minutes, losing 1-0 or whatever. We've only lost one game in 13, so we'll go in hopeful we can get a good result. I think you've just got to go and express yourself."

The Dubliner made an impressive start to the match but was at the centre of a controversial incident also when he went in hard on Cesc Fabregas. Forrester received a yellow card for his troubles but he was lucky not to get his marching orders.

Either way, the former St Pat's midfielder showcased his exciting talent to leave viewers praising his performance.
