Striker Stuart Beavon insists the goals are coming for him and strike partner Jack King
The duo have found themselves spearheading the North End attack in recent weeks and have combined, with the help of others, to create a host of chances as of late and the PNE No.29 believes that the net will begin to bulge, sooner rather than later.
“We have had the same partnership up front for a little while now and we are starting to create a lot more chances in front of goal and we know that it is not going to be long before we are both scoring a few more and hopefully that starts on Saturday,” said Beavon.
“We have a good understanding of each other and I gamble off his knock downs and stuff.
“I like to get in behind and it is working well at the minute.”
Saturday marks Simon Grayson’s first game in charge at Deepdale and the players are just as excited as the gaffer to return home and play in front of the North End fans.
“It is the gaffer’s first game and there is going to be a good atmosphere like there was the last time and the boys are focused and we want to get a win and we can’t wait to get out there,” added Stuart.
“It has been a while since we played at home and all the boys and myself are looking forward to getting back there.
“Playing in front of the Deepdale crowd last time was amazing, it was loud and it was brilliant and as I said, for myself and all the boys, we just can’t wait to get back in front of them and start turning Deepdale into a bit of a fortress.”
Three impressive performances of late have seen PNE pick up five points and build momentum, as they look to continue their recent unbeaten streak.
A run Beavon is keen for them to extend at the weekend.
“We are three games unbeaten and we would like to have picked up another four points in the last two, but it wasn’t to be, so hopefully we can pick up another three points on Saturday,” said the man who has scored nine times in North End colours.
“Everyone has looked sharp and everyone is ready and raring to go for Saturday.”
