There was plenty of pent-up frustration behind Chuks Aneke’s ferocious strike which almost broke the net at Peterborough United last weekend.
The force behind the vicious effort? A year’s worth of frustration at not being able to play games and score the types of goals Dons fans are beginning to see and enjoy from the 23-year-old.
“There was a lot of frustration in that shot,” Aneke said with a smile. “A lot of the lads are getting onto me about my celebration because I showed a lot of emotion. It all just came out because, everyone knows, I’ve had a hard time with the injury.
“When I was injured I did a lot of strength work and I feel like I’m in good shape. In the earlier games I was getting chances but not finishing them. I’m delighted that I took a few in this game – I feel like this is all a reward for all that hard work.
