Huntington Ready For County Test

19 November 2012

PNE.Com speaks to defender Paul Huntington following his return from suspension last weekend.

“They have been going well this season and have been in the top six for the majority of it, their form away from home is excellent.”

The number four concluded: “Notts County are a good side, Brentford were as well but we are strong at home and we are all looking forward to playing another game so quickly and we are looking to take the game to County.

Aware of the threat the Magpies cause, Huntington is looking forward to the challenge and hopes by 10pm tomorrow night, County’s record has been broken.

County, who were beaten 2-0 at Deepdale last season, are unbeaten away from home this season and come into the game following a 2-2 draw at Scunthorpe on Saturday.

“The fans really got behind the lads, especially after the first goal it helped a lot and it was a shame we couldn’t hold out in the final few minutes, we will be looking for an immediate reaction.”

“I am enjoying playing with Robbo [Chris Robertson], he is a great lad and he is very professional and we bounce off each other both on and off the pitch which helps.

“We didn’t perform to the best of our abilities but we turn our attention to the next game and we want to get back to winning ways. We have to pick ourselves up and go again and establish our place in the top six as soon as possible.

“We spoke as a group after the game about not feeling sorry for ourselves, sometimes these things happen, they didn’t many attempts on goal and we defended well.

He said: “It was good to come back into the team, I enjoyed the game but obviously disappointed with the result. Overall from the team performance we can take a lot of positives heading into Tuesday’s game against Notts County.

With Saturday’s result now a past thought, Huntington told the Club’s official website the team will certainly not feel sorry for themselves and are determined to get back onto the winning track with three points on Tuesday night against Keith Curle’s Notts County.

Partnering Chris Robertson in the heart of the back line, Huntington and his fellow defenders were rarely tested by the Brentford attack and were dealt a harsh blow late on when the Bees salvaged a late equaliser.

The former Premier League defender played the full 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw at home to Brentford after missing the Lilywhites empathic 4-1 victory at Stevenage the previous week.
