Simon Grayson: “Ingredients Are There For Fantastic Encounter”

23 October 2014

Preston North End host Fleetwood Town for the first time in a competitive fixture and PNE manager Simon Grayson is expecting an exciting encounter.

The Lilywhites will be looking to make it seven wins on the bounce this weekend and despite the hype of a derby game, the gaffer told PNE Player he has his sights set solely on the three points. 

"Local derby, the added ingredients of Grezza coming back with a few other ex-Preston players, I think first and foremost though it's going to be a tough game. 

"Hopefully there will be some good numbers, hopefully there will be numbers through the gate, home fans and the away fans make it an attractive proposition as well. 

"Regardless of the spiciness and the rivalry, we want three points, that's all that matters, it can be like a morgue on Saturday and then we win it doesn't really bother me.

"But the ingredients are all there for a fantastic encounter and hopefully we can give our supporters the bragging rights come the weekend.
