Amoo Sharpening Up

9 August 2012

PNE.Com speak to frontman David Amoo after his return to action against Plymouth Argyle

“I am loving life at Preston, my target now is to get my fitness up, get sharper and see how it goes.”

“I met a few of the fans last Saturday at half time, it was great and they are lovely so hopefully we can have a good time at the training day this weekend

Before Monday night’s Capital One Cup first round tie against the Terriers, Graham Westley’s side will hold an Open Training Day for supporters at Deepdale, something Amoo is excited about.

“Everybody is looking forward to the Huddersfield game and hopefully we will make a good impact.

“The team spirit has been great it is the best I have ever seen in a team, they are a great set of lads and we are all bonding well.

“We have got a mix with the wingers, we have got players who like to come inside and do different things, so we have got a very good variety and that can only benefit the team.

“We have got a lot of pace in the team with the likes of Will [Hayhurst] and Lee Holmes on the left, they have all got pace,” he continued before heading off to the away dressing room.

The youngster was one of four North End wingers on show in Devon on Wednesday night, with Will Hayhurst, Jeffrey Monakana and Lee Holmes all making an appearance.

“It was good to get some minutes under my belt and start building my fitness up so I can stake a claim for a starting place against Huddersfield on Monday. Every chance I get I will make the most of them.”

“I made a good run for the goal but it is all about getting my sharpness now because I have been out injured which has been very frustrating.

“It was good to finish off pre-season with a win, we came to Plymouth and they played really well but we were resilient defending and managed to come away with the result,” said North End’s number seven.

Playing the first 45 minutes at Home Park, Amoo told PNE.Com after the final whistle he is glad to be back out there building his fitness back up before Monday’s season opener. 

The former Liverpool trainee showed his potential by setting up the only goal of the match scored by Akpo Sodje with a weaving run past two white shirts in the fourth minute.

After a frustrating pre-season on the sidelines, frontman David Amoo looked like he has never been away with an encouraging performance against Plymouth Argyle on Wednesday evening.
