Goal Hero Joe Garner Celebrates “Nice Day” For North End

14 March 2015

Not one to get carried away, a composed Joe Garner was pleased with his and his teammates’ day at the office following a 5-1 rout of Crewe Alexandra.

The frontman took his tally for the 2014/15 campaign from 16 to 20 with four goals in a five star showing by the Lilywhites, strike partner Jermaine Beckford plunged the final nail in the Alex coffin on Saturday.

But Garner insists that three points and cementing second place was the highlight of the day despite his goal scoring exploits – exploits which saw him become the first Preston player to net four in one match since Alex Bruce against Colchester United in 1978.

“I thought we played well today, the first half, the first 25 minutes, I thought we were really strong and to come away with four goals and three points is obviously a nice day,” said the PNE No.14.

“It is always nice to score a hat-trick and four is a bonus, but I’m more happy with the three points and we are sat nice in the league now and we have got a massive game on Tuesday.”

When asked for the pick of his strikes, Garner said: “I enjoyed the fourth goal, I knew Becks wasn’t going to cut it back to me, I just had it in my head it was going to hit the post and it happened so it was nice to follow in and get a tap in.”
