Welsh Looks Ahead To 'Biggest Game Of His Career'

13 May 2015

Midfielder John Welsh may have played in some huge games in his career, including the Champions League but he insists the Play-Off final is the biggest yet.

Welsh has been a pivotal part of the team since fighting his way back into the starting Xl earlier in the season and can't wait to play at Wembley in front of the North End faithful and feels the squad has the experience to go all the way. 
Speaking to PNE Player, the 31-year-old said: "I think probably for myself, it's one of the biggest games of my career. Obviously I've been at Hull when we got promoted and I've been at Liverpool winning the Champions League but for me this is the first final where I can win something where I've been involved a lot in.
"It's definitely the biggest game in my career, and it probably will be for some of the other lads. I think the good thing about our squad, and obviously with the gaffer is they have been there and they have won or they've been at Wembley and they know what it's all about and they know what they need to do to win there.
"Clarkey [Tom Clarke] has been there, Joe [Garner] has been, Calum Woods has been and the gaffer has been so the good thing is they have been there and they have won so they know what it takes and I'm sure their experience could be the difference between getting us the win.
"It's going to be a great occasion, I'm sure the lads are really looking forward to it but it's a game of football and that's what we have got to treat it like.
"I'm sure once you get there the blood will be pumping and the adrenaline will be going so I think you can use that in a positive way, I certainly will.
"Obviously we will enjoy it at first, walking out onto the pitch and seeing the fans, you always enjoy that but I think once the whistle goes you're back to business and you know what you've got to do to win the game and you just plan on doing that."
