Gaffer: We Believe In The Players

18 August 2016

Manager Simon Grayson has confidence his squad will get points on the board sooner rather than later.

After a successful return to the Championship last season, North End are yet to get off the mark points wise but the PNE boss fully believes that victories are just around the corner. 

Speaking to PNE PlayerHD ahead of Saturday's trip to Queens Park Rangers, the gaffe said:"There's no crisis of confidence or anything like that, they [the players] have just got to keep believing in what they are doing. 

"We believe in them, we believe in what we are trying to do, we'll keep working hard on the training ground, maybe add one or two recruits along the way but ultimately we won't get away from what we did last year. 

"We are working towards that and hopefully we will see the benefits on Saturday and get a positive result down there like we did last year. 

With the division as competitive as ever this season, every game is challenge for the teams involved but Grayson feels that's exactly how it should be. 

"No game should be an easy game, I went to QPR v Barnsley last night and Barnsley were very good and kept on going and got the 90th minute winner and we saw a lot of qualities that we had last year. 

"They were hard to beat, they made sure they worked the opposition and they never gave up and they got their rewards at the end of it. 

"There are a lot of games and the opposition have got to know that they are not in for an easy game and that's what the Championship is all about, tough games right the way through."
