Joe Garner goes into the new year ready to start his second year as a PNE player and can see a marked difference in the Club to when he arrived 12 months ago.
The Lilywhites’ top scorer joined on 6th January 2013 and in the main interview for Wednesday’s edition of The One And Only, he was looking forward to pressing on with his career at his boyhood team.
“I think it’s a totally different place from when I came in,” he told the official matchday programme. “The fans’ attitude has changed, the whole atmosphere has changed and it’s a great place to be. It is a lot happier place to be and we are doing well in the league, which always helps, so yes, I would definitely say it is a different place.
“I know a lot of people who support the Club, so they tell me what they think. Everyone always has a different opinion about the games, but since the gaffer has come in, the whole place has done well and therefore people don’t have as much to say and long may that continue!
“On a personal level it would be great [if we could achieve something this season]. I used to watch the games when I was younger. I went to the Play-Offs against Bolton and we were unlucky in that period not to get promoted to the Premier League.
“Personally I believe the status of the Club is better than its league position. I believe we at least a Championship club, but it is alright saying that, we have to get there, put a performance in every game and hopefully we can be there or thereabouts at the end of the season in the promotion mix up.”
