Wright Time To Score

11 October 2012

PNE.Com speaks to Aussie defender Bailey Wright ahead of Sunday’s game…

“We scored some good goals at Morecambe and put in a good team performance but everyone is fighting to get hold of a shirt for Sunday and there is competition for a starting place against MK Dons.”

“The lads who played did brilliant on Tuesday night, they showed good character to come back from 1-0 down and to win the match 4-2.

“It is always nice to return to your home stadium after a run of games away from home, we love playing in front of our own fans.

“MK Dons have a strong squad and they did well last season and they have started this season strong too. All the lads know it is going to be a tough game and it is set up once again to be a good game.

He continued: “Every game that you play is a huge game, regardless who you are playing, you have to be ready to take all three points and that is what you always look to do.

With the game put back a day to Sunday with the Sky cameras in place, Wright is putting that aside and told the Club’s official website the most important thing is to get the win, and the Dons clash doesn’t have any more importance than any other of the 43 League One games this season.

“It was a brilliant day for the Club and for me it was nice to score my first senior goal and the atmosphere when I scored, I still remember it now it was unbelievable.

“The atmosphere last April was unreal, I remember the amount of fans that we had behind us and everything that was going on for Sir Tom Finney’s birthday.

Reflecting back on the day, Wright said: “It was a big occasion for the Club the last time we played MK Dons because we celebrated Sir Tom Finney’s 90th birthday. It would be nice to score again on Sunday but the most important thing is to pick up the three points.

North End’s young prodigy was the star of the Sir Tom Finney 90th show in April as he scored a 90th minute equaliser against MK Dons as the Lilywhites.
