Greg Cunningham Hails PNE Fighting Spirit

20 April 2016

North End full back Greg Cunningham believed PNE's never say never attitude saw them secure a share of the spoils tonight.

The Lilywhites came back from two goals down to secure a point at St Andrew's with Irish duo Alan Browne and Greg Cunningham both on the score sheet in North End's favour.

It was Cunningham himself who snatched a last minute equaliser with just a minute of normal time remaining, and the Irishman praised PNE's approach to the game this evening after manager Simon Grayson demanded a reaction from Saturday's 1-1 to MK Dons.

"It was a frustrating second half at the weekend and we know it wasn't at our usual standards," conceded Cunningham to PNEPlayerHD. "But we knew we had a few days to put it right and I thought we more than deserved to get something out of tonight.

"It's annoying to concede early doors, but we've come back before and that just shows the character in the dressing room.

"Clarkey slotted in at right back brilliantly so there was no real issue as such, we've had a few injuries but I thought we coped with it well.

"We just kept knocking on the door and kept going and it gives everyone a lift. The fans were very vocal tonight and fair play to them who have travelled down. 

"The corner came in, I've hit the post, I think Bailey's shot and it's then fell kindly to me and I just smashed it from two yards and I'll take those all day of the week. We've shown great fight and attitude all season and tonight, we've got what we deserved."
