Beavon Not Afraid To Have A Go

3 October 2012

Striker Stuart Beavon scored his third goal in Preston colours against Doncaster…

“It is important we pick up points away from home and express ourselves in the manner that we did tonight against Doncaster. It is important that we build from this and make sure we play well at Oldham on Saturday.”

“Beardo [Chris Beardsley] works extremely hard and helps me out a lot like he did for my goal when he chested the ball down and allowed me to run at the Doncaster defence. We complement each other’s game well.

“It is part of the game, you take heavy knocks but you have to get up and get on with it but all the lads are delighted to come away with the win.

“Last season I managed to score a few from outside of the box and it is one thing that I will always do, if I see the goal in sight from good distance I won’t be afraid to have a dig.

Beavon, who was prolific in the front goal last season at Adams Park, continued his exclusive interview with PNE.Com by saying he is familiar with scoring goals from outside the box and believes his partnership with Chris Beardsley can only get stronger.

“When you play away from home you want to silence their crowd which is what we did tonight.”

“In the second half that is how we want to play our game on a consistent basis, take the game to the opposition and then they have to deal with it.

“We had a slight lapse of 15 minutes in the first half were we went on to concede from a set piece but in the second half we did what we had to do, stood firm and made sure we got on top of the game.

Speaking to the Club’s official website after the final whistle, PNE’s deadline day capture said: “It was a great game, we wanted to come and build on our win on Saturday with an away performance to be proud of and we did that.

It was a professional away performance from Graham Westley’s men, as they frustrated the home crowd with their clinical finishing and resolute defending.

It hasn’t taken long for former Wycombe man Beavon to find his goal scoring boots at Preston North End, as he contributed the final goal of three North End scored at the Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday night.
