Neil Kilkenny put in a man of the match performance in the draw third round tie at Portman Road ten days ago.
Back at Deepdale he is hoping to finish the job off. He spoke to The One And Only as the main interviewee for the game and said that he was delighted to have secured his future at the Club for the rest of the season.
“I was looking forward to the loan spell, when it began, and I have enjoyed every minute so far,” he told the matchday programme. “Everyone has been so welcoming. I know the manager and his assistant very well and they both made it an easy decision and I have enjoyed everything so far and hopefully the results and the performances can carry on the way that they have so far.
“I had a bit of bad luck for the first few weeks of being here. I played at Orient and then had my first start against Colchester, which was a really good performance from the whole team – we just missed so many chances, but we should have gone on and won the game comfortably – then the others things all happened. But this is a brand new start and hopefully I can perform for the Club. It’s a great Club and I am really looking forward to it.
“I’m ready to kick on. I want to kick on now and if we can keep winning games, then we will be right up there at the end of the season; which is where we want to be. Every game is a big one at the moment and we are looking forward to them all with a positive mindset.
“There is a lot of quality in the dressing room. We have produced a lot of good football and a lot of chances in the last few games that I have played in. The performances that we have been seeing have been very good and we want the quality to improve and shine through and hopefully we will be right up there at the end of the season.”
