Terry happy to return to winning ways

Saturday’s Premier League defeat to Manchester City followed hot on

the heels of a Carling Cup elimination at the hands of Newcastle –

but Terry’s early goal and Nicolas Anelka’s penalty earned them a

2-0 win over Marseille to stop the rot and leave Carlo Ancelotti’s

side top of Group F with maximum points. “Coming here, we’d had two

losses which is very unusual for us,” he told Sky Sports 2. “So

we’re pleased to pick up three points, keep a clean sheet and

extend that lead at the top of the group. “In the second half we

had a few chances to make it three or four. We didn’t start the

brightest in the second half but we stayed solid and kept a clean

sheet. “With Sunday in mind we maybe took our foot off the gas a

little bit, saving a bit of energy for the weekend. “We’d have

liked to have got a third and killed the game off but they had a

lot of possession.” Describing his goal, he said: “I just made a

run to the near post and it was a flick with the outside of the

foot. “I’d like to dedicate that goal to a young girl named Ruby

from Make a Wish (Foundation) – she had a serious operation a

couple of weeks ago and thankfully she pulled through.”
