Snodin On Importance Of Cups

24 August 2015

Assistant manager Glynn Snodin spoke ahead of the visit of Premier League Watford to Deepdale in the second round of the Capital One Cup.

The North End No.2 admitted that the tie was one the dressing room was looking forward to, with plenty of belief that the Lilywhites can take a scalp.

“Cups are important to us,” said ‘Snods’. “You want to go as far as you can and if you get to a big game or a final it is great. 

“We know what it is like at Wembley – we enjoyed that day and we want to win every game possible, whether it’s the Capital One Cup, FA Cup or a league game and these lads will go out and give everything that they’ve got.

“We can’t moan about these boys; they give everything they’ve got in every single game, no matter who we are playing.”

Coming up against the recently promoted Hornets is a good test for North End and the former Northern Ireland coach believes it will be a tough test, whatever line-up they choose to go with.

“I think it’s great that we are playing a Premier League club, it’s fantastic,” he continued. “You want to test yourself against better players; they have some good foreigners, who have good technical ability and they are a good outfit.

“They haven’t lost yet and they’ve had a couple of clean sheets in there and with all the ability they have at the back, they will be tight going forward as well.

“There will be a few changes. The fact they haven’t changed the game to Wednesday gives you that suggestion as well. They have a big game [against Chelsea] at the weekend and they will make big changes, but it will still be a good outfit with good players out there.

“We made changes in the last round and we have a good squad, who we know can get in there and adapt. Players have to be patient and they understand that. We chat with them all every other day to make sure they enjoy coming to work and are ready to play when they are needed.”
