Byrom Glad To Be Back

8 September 2012

Joel Byrom tells PNE.Com he hopes to now stay injury free after making his debut for the Club...

One of Byrom’s strengths is his eye for a pass, and in spells you could see what he could offer this season for Preston.

“We have got a good week ahead now to spend some time on the training ground, it has been a bit hectic lately, so this will give us a chance to work on a few things ready for next Saturday’s game against Crawley Town.”

“Over the last few weeks I have been working hard, I feel good and the job is for me to now get back into the side.I hope to stay injury free now, get myself match fit and help the team pick up some wins. 

“It has been frustrating, especially as I completed the full pre-season programme and I picked up the injury in the final game. 

“It was good to make my debut, I have been desperate to get into the team and get myself back fit but it has been about coming back at the right time.

One of the stand out performers during the Lilywhites’ pre-season programme, Preston’s number 13 admitted to PNE.Com he has glad to be back and hopes that will be it for him on the injury front this season.

Byrom, born and bred in Lancashire, made his competitive debut for the Club as a second half substitute against the Shakers.

A sight which will have pleased both manager Graham Westley and the Preston North End supporters was the return of midfielder Joel Byrom from injury in the 2-1 win over Bury.
“It was a sloppy goal to concede at the end and we know we should be seeing those games out but it is a good win and it is good to get our first league win away from home.

“Preston versus Bury is a local derby, the fans were superb again today, and they outnumbered the home supporters which is magnificent. They really got behind the team and you could see them pulling the ball into their net in the second half.

“We are trying our best to get our away form right but it is important to pick up wins when you don’t play at your best.

“It was good to get the win today, we know we were not at our best but it is important that we have picked up all three points,” he concluded.

Reflecting on today’s game, the former Accrington midfielder is happy to see the Club pick up their first win away from home in League One this season, but is aware the performance wasn’t up to scratch.
