King: Nice To Be Back At Deepdale

26 August 2012

PNE.Com speaks to hero of the last round Jack King ahead of the Palace clash...

“We are new as a team and every game we play we are learning together and we are gelling together every time we play,” said King.

Thanking them for showing patience whilst the team continues to gel, King is confident North End can make it two wins in three at Deepdale so far this season and progress to the third round at Palace’s expense. 

King, like a number of his new PNE team mates have commented on a regular basis the fantastic support the Lilywhites’ fans have given them since their arrival at the Club.

“We want to get into good habits and we want to get into a habit of winning, success breeds success. It is a competition we are taking seriously and we are not looking lightly at this game.”

“We should have won on Saturday but we are looking to win every single game that we go into and it is no different on Tuesday.

“We have been stuttering a bit at late in regards to winning football matches but we have shown promising signs and we are creating chances at the moment but we are not converting. 

“Crystal Palace are going to be completely different opposition and it is a game we are all looking forward to and a game we are looking to win. 

“It is nice to have the games underway and it was nice to score against Huddersfield Town in the previous round,” the former Woking man told PNE.Com.

Ready to come head-to-head against Championship opposition yet again in the form of Crystal Palace, King knows they will be a completely different proposition than the Terriers.

The tireless number 22 is enjoying his debut season in the competition, and has already made his mark by scoring the opening goal for Preston in the last round against Huddersfield Town.

The Capital One Cup might not be a new experience to a strong percentage of the North End squad, but it is to versatile midfielder Jack King.
“Deepdale is not an easy place for away teams to come to and we will be looking to assert our game on them instead of the other way around.”

“Crystal Palace are an established Championship side, we know all about the qualities that they have got but we are confident.

“We are pleased with this draw and it is nice to be back in front of the home supporters and I am sure all the fans will be looking forward to the game. 

“There are some very big teams in this cup and it is something for the fans to look forward to if you do manage to draw one of the bigger sides.

“Hopefully the supporters can see that we are progressing in the right way and Tuesday is another opportunity to do that.
