Sodje Has Goals On His Mind

31 August 2012

Striker Akpo Sodje tells PNE.Com he is starting to feel the benefits of the training regime at Deepdale

“The work I have put in at the training ground and it is paying off now and I am happy with that but my target is to keep on working hard and score more goals for this football club.”

“Sunday will be another good game to play in front of the home supporters, and we want to taste victory again.

Sodje, who joined the Club late after a brief spell in China, is starting to feel the benefits of the training programme at Deepdale.

“There we will teams coming to Deepdale this season scared because of the reputation we are going to create here and we will be a strong team and a hard team to beat.”

“We are improving every day, getting fitter and stronger and we are gradually going to become better and better.

“Like I have said it will be a tough place for Swindon Town to come and they won’t want to be playing here.

“It is going to be another tough test,” said PNE’s newly acquired number 12. “But there is no test we can’t overcome, we are growing as a team and we are getting stronger every game.

However, Sodje is determined not to let the Robins spoil the party, and believes the visitors won’t be looking forward to the trip to Lancashire.

North End will be presented with the challenge of last season’s League Two title winners on Sunday with Paulo Di Canio’s Swindon coming to town on the weekend in which Preston celebrate the Guild.

“It has been good to get two goals in the last two games and I am looking forward to scoring more for Preston North End.”

Talking to PNE.Com, the experienced frontman said: “I am hoping to make my second start in a week on Sunday.

The former Sheffield Wednesday striker has found the back of the net in North End’s last two games, but he is now ready to make his home league bow this weekend.

Striker Akpo Sodje has set himself a simple target ahead of this weekend’s clash against Swindon Town, make it three goals in as many games.
