Wright Ready To End Sky Blues' Run

20 December 2012

Bailey Wright tells PNE.Com he is ready to help stop Coventry City’s run of good form.

“It is good take on into Saturday, it is a good confidence booster for the squad and we want to get back to winning ways in League One.” 

“It is always good to go into the next game after a win, even if we did it the hard way at Bury. We showed good character to take the lead three times but we got the win and that is what we went there to do.

“We were screaming and shouting at each other all the time, it is good to communicate on the pitch and some communication is better than no communication, even if it doesn’t make sense sometimes. It is our job to keep one another on their toes.

“The three goals we conceded we were not happy about but there were a lot of positives to take away from the performance at Bury.

“We started a new partnership on Tuesday, it is the first time me and Luke Foster played alongside each other in a competitive game. 

Pleased to heading into the game off the back of a win, Wright concluded by saying he is determined to get the Club’s league form back on track. 

Wright, who has completed the last two games for North End partnered debutant Luke Foster in the heart of the Preston back line, and from the stands at Gigg Lane it was clear to see the pair were a vocal force.

“It will be nice to play against Adam Barton, he was here for quite a few years and I played alongside him a few times both in the reserves and the first team. It will good to see him but there are no friends out on the football pitch.”

“You play football to play against the best and David McGoldrick has proven he is a quality striker. He has scored a few goals this season in League One and has played in the Championship; it will be a good test.

“Coventry have been on a run of good form at the minute so it will be a good game. We will be looking to take the three points but they are a team in form at the minute but it is our job to stop it. 

Ready to come up against a former team mate plus League One’s top goal scorer David McGoldrick, Wright is looking forward to the test.

The Lilywhites travel to the Ricoh Arena on Saturday to face the Sky Blues who are unbeaten so far in December, but will climb above Mark Robins’ team with all three points.
