Sam Johnstone 'Buzzing' For Derby Day

27 March 2015

Goalkeeper Sam Johnstone is looking forward to this weekend's derby clash with Fleetwood Town at Highbury.

Speaking to PNE Player ahead of the game, the North End stopper admits there is an extra buzz around the training ground ahead of the fixture.

"All the lads are buzzing, we've been training this week and the standards are still high and the lads can't wait to play. Obviously it's the added bonus that it's on TV as well.

"My little brother plays there, he's only young but he went there in the summer as a goalkeeper as well so I will probably see him around the ground as well, so he will be watching.

Speaking of the other North End connections at Fleetwood, Sam insists that come kick-off both sides will be solely focused on getting the three points.

"Obviously some of their staff have been here but for them they will want to win the game and we will concentrate on ourselves. We take it game by game but we need the three points on Sunday.

"You can't affect what happens in other games, only in our games, so we concentrate on ourselves and we try our best to get three points every time we go out and play the game."
