Cape Town - Peterborough United’s South African defender Kgosi Ntlhe has admitted that his last season for the League One outfit was not up to standard and hopes to improve in the 2015/16 campaign.

Posh, as Ntlhe’s club is known, are aiming to get push for promotion next season and the defender recognises that he now has more responsibility as one of the team’s senior players.

“I’m a senior player here now and one of my jobs is to explain to new players how things work at this club,” the South African said according to the Peterborough Telegraph.

“We all believe that hard work is the key to success and that we won’t get back to the Championship without it.

“It’s what we all want, but we don’t discuss it amongst ourselves because we don’t have to. We all know what the aim is next season.

“We are like a big family here. We support each other all the time.”

Ntlhe is just 21-years-of-age but only two other players have been at Posh for longer than him and as a result he feels that he should be putting in better performances.

“Last season I was average. I didn’t play as much as I wanted to and I didn’t play as well as I wanted to.

“I had a hamstring injury which took a while to get over and that didn’t help and nor did the red cards.

“My season finished early because of the second red card at Barnsley, but I came back early to pre-season training in order to get a head start.”

Ntlhe has recorded one cap for Bafana Bafana against Morrocco on 2013. He was called up by Gordon Igesund for the game against Brazil at Soccer City in 2014 but he didn’t leave the bench during the 5-0 rout.
