Beardo Proud With North End Fightback

29 September 2012

PNE striker Chris Beardsley talks to the official site after his return to action from injury…

“Hopefully we will have a good following like we had at Bury and Walsall, and we will be looking to pick up all three points.”

“We will start building up towards Doncaster on Tuesday, give them the respect that they deserve and also talk about ourselves and what we can do there.

“We will come back in on Monday, have a talk through today’s game and look at what we can build on.

“It was nice to get 80 minutes under my belt, I was a little bit tight towards the end so but that was to be expected after I have been out for the last 12 days with a hamstring injury.

Concluding his interview he said: “ I did a lot of work early in the week with the physio to get two sessions in on Thursday and Friday so I could be ready for today.

Attention now turns to Tuesday’s nights trip to Doncaster Rovers, who won 2-0 at Leyton Orient on Saturday, and Beardsley is under no illusion it will be an easy game.

“We are growing all the time, we are learning all the time. We have got two young wingers in Jeffrey Monakana and Will Hayhurst and they played pivotal roles in the win which is great for them.”

“Hopefully the fans will go away happy, they have seen a win and a spirited fight back in the second half.

“In football there can be a lot of over the top analysis, if you look into things too deeply you can find answers for questions that are not even there in football.

“Sometimes you just have to put the points on the board, learn from your mistakes, learn from how we played in the second half and move forward.

“I have been part of promotions before and championship wins and sometimes you have to just win the football match, it is as simple as that.

“We gave possession away too frequently and although we looked quite comfortable, Yeovil looked like they were never going to trouble our goal. We have to be better with the ball when we do have set backs.

Reflecting on today’s play the former Stevenage man said: “The penalty knocked us back in the first half, we didn’t really recover, we didn’t get our game going and we were naïve in possession.

But a strong fight back in the second half saw North End once again come out on top of a goal thriller against Yeovil, with 12 goals now scored in the last two meetings between the two sides at Deepdale.

With both teams looking to get back on the winning road ahead of kick-off, PNE didn’t start the match how they intended after conceding an early first half penalty.

on the chest, the ball has taken a diversion and I have bundled it in with the Yeovil full back.”
Talking about his first league goal for the Club, he continued: “I will claim the goal, no doubt about it, I didn’t see it until the last minute and I was going to head the ball but Stuart Beavon flicked it on and it hit me

North End’s number 20 was making his first appearance since limping out of the 5-0 win over Hartlepool United with a hamstring strain, and marked his return with the Lilywhites’ second goal in the 3-2 win over Yeovil Town.

“It is good to get three points after the two results last week, it is nice to be back out there and in the second half we showed what we are all about,” Beardsley told PNE.Com.
