Wroe: Lairdy Is One Of The Best

22 November 2012

Nicky Wroe shows his support to team mate Scott Laird, describing the Lilywhites’ number three as one of the nicest men in football

for further herePreston North End are offering supporters a fantastic package on tickets for our two festive fixtures against Bury and Doncaster Rovers at Christmas. Please

“There are no mugs in League One, we have seen that so far this season and it has been proven, it is a tough league so we are going to have to play at our best to get results"

“Orient’s ground is similar to the one at Stevenage, we will not be afraid of that and we will adapt to this game to suit the dimensions of the pitch.

“We have been doing well away from home; Saturday presents another chance to get three points. Leyton Orient are doing well and are just below us in the table so it will be another test.

“Hopefully we can get back to winning ways on Saturday at Leyton Orient and continue our unbeaten record.

“Last time we headed south it was a good afternoon; we put in a good performance against Stevenage. We are disappointed we haven’t picked up as many points as we would have liked since then even though our performances have been at a decent standard.

Ready for the challenge Orient will present, who have won their last four games in all competitions, Wroe believes North End’s game plan will see them head back to Lancashire with all three points.

This weekend, North End head down to London, with Leyton Orient the opposition, and Preston will be looking for their second consecutive away win following their triumph at Stevenage two weeks ago.

He continued: “It has been disappointing to hear those types of things, it hasn’t just been on Tuesday night it has been a matter which has reoccurred throughout the season. Whether the referee is coming with a pre perception I am not sure but it is disappointing if that is the case and hopefully that will change.”

In recent weeks, refereeing decisions have been in the spotlight but Wroe hopes it will be soon be a thought of the past.

“I don’t know what will happen with his little fine book, we will have a meeting to see who will take over for the time being, maybe Scott will take tabs of it from home, we are not sure yet.,” joked the Lilywhites’ midfielder.

“He is one of the nicest guys in football, you couldn’t wish to meet a nicer lad and he is a massive part of our dressing room.

“Everybody has sent Scott their well wishes via text and Twitter. Scott has been inundated with support and that just shows what type of lad he is, everybody holds him in high regard as a friend and a player and the response has been unbelievable, he has played a big part for us this season.

The 24-year-old, who begins his recovery back to fitness will be missed by his team mates, but Wroe revealed it is yet to be known who will take over from Laird as the Club’s official fine man, a position which Laird held in high importance.
