Wroe Ready To Break Record

20 August 2012

PNE.Com speaks to former Shrew Nicky Wroe ahead of Tuesday's trip to Shropshire

“There is always that bit of uncertainty in the first game of the season because you want to see where you are at, what sort of games they are going to be and teams you are going to be coming up against.

“The gaffer has been using different combinations during pre-season and the first two games me and John [Mousinho] have been able to play together. We are forming a decent understanding but we are learning from each other and we want to take it onto the next level and improve.

“By the time we get back to Deepdale we want to have seven points under our belts and looking in a healthy position. We want to keep building as the week’s go on and evolving as a team. 

He continued: “We were slightly disappointed that we didn’t get the win on Saturday after what we did against Huddersfield Town on the Monday night. Hopefully we can take positives from Saturday’s performance and take them into Tuesday’s game.

Wroe is adamant though the next time the players walk out onto the Deepdale surface, they will have seven points on the board.

North End will head to Shropshire in high spirits following two promising displays against Huddersfield Town and Colchester United in front of their home supporters.

“Runs always have to be ended at some point and those records have to be broken and hopefully we can go there on Tuesday night and upset them.”

“We did well at Shrewsbury last year and the previous season we were unlucky not to win promotion, so it was good to taste success last season but that is all in the past now and my focus is with Preston North End.

“I am looking forward to going back,” Wroe exclusively told PNE.Com. “It is always a place I have enjoying playing so I can’t really see why that would change but we are hoping to pick up all three points.

Wroe, who holds fond memories of his time in Shropshire, is looking forward to returning to the club where he tasted promotion only three months ago.

The former Shrew will be making a swift return to Greenhous Meadow following his summer switch to North End alongside defender Shane Cansdell-Sherriff.

Creative midfielder Nicky Wroe is ready to help break Shrewsbury Town’s impressive 18 month unbeaten home record, one in which he played a part in creating. 
The first game is now out of the way and now we are concentrating on working hard and hopefully pick up some good results.”
