PNE.Com speaks to striker Stuart Beavon ahead of the Sheffield United clash.
“The manager has a number of options up front to go with and it keeps everyone on their toes, Akpo Sodje has come back in and he has continued where he left off by scoring goals so we are all fighting for a place.
“We have got three tough games coming up in the next week or so and we want to win every single one of them. If we can get three wins then we are going to be right in there.
He continued: “It is important that we keep on recording clean sheets because if you do that then you always know you will walk away with a result. We want to be winning football matches without having conceded any goals.
In front of the Sky cameras last week, North End showed their stern back line to keep their fourth clean sheet at Deepdale this season, and Beavon stresses the importance of making clean sheet number five on Saturday.
“I played against Sheffield United last year a couple of times during my time at Wycombe Wanderers, they are going to be a tough outfit and we are going to have to be at our best.”
“In the second half against MK Dons we showed exactly what we are capable of, we are not far away and the job now is to carry that form all the way through rather than just for half a game.
North End’s number 29 said: “Saturday will be another tough test at home against a team vying for promotion but if we can apply ourselves like we did in the second half against MK Dons then we are more than confident of getting the right result.
Beavon, who scored for Wycombe last season in a 1-0 win for the Chairboys against Sheffield United at Adams Park, is hopeful he can once again find his name on the scoresheet against the Blades, but this time for Preston.
His work rate has been well documented by the North End faithful also, as he put in another committed shift against MK Dons last weekend.
The 28-year-old has made an immediate impact at the Club since his deadline day switch from League Two outfit Wycombe Wanderers and has found the back of the net three times so far for Graham Westley’s men.
