Extra Incentive For PNE's John Welsh

13 February 2015

Growing up as a Liverpool fan, John Welsh has added motivation going into Monday's FA Cup clash with the Reds' rivals Manchester United.

Speaking to PNE Player, the midfielder claimed he can't be held responsible for his actions should be score the winner against United, and admits that the dressing room feel it is a winnable tie.

"Everyone knows of the rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester United, it's going to be a great game, I'm really looking forward to it. I can't be held responsible for if I score the winner, so if it's me that scores the winner in the 92nd minute then anything could happen!

"It's really exciting times and I'm sure it's exciting for Preston North End fans who are seeing this game.

"We believe it's a winnable game, any games winnable no matter who you're playing or who you're coming up against. We've seen Cambridge give them a game at home so it's definitely a winnable game.

"It's going to be tough, we're going to need eleven players to be playing really, really well to get anything from the game and I think we've got that in us to do it.

"It's a great occasion, and these are the nights where legends or heroes are made. Super Tommy Clarke is one that came from the Blackpool game. So whether it's me or whether it's anyone, if we win the game then I'm sure we'll all be heroes for a couple of weeks and that's the aim and that's the plan. So whoever it is who gets the winner, they'll be a hero in my eyes lets just say that!."
