Tommy Spurr On 'A 90 Minute' Performance

20 August 2016

Debutant Tommy Spurr felt North End stuck to their game plan from the first, to the 90th minute this afternoon.

On his competitive debut for the Lilywhites, Spurr was part of a North End side that acquired their first points of the season with a convincing 2-0 victory away from home against QPR.

Spurr slotted into the side as a left sided wing back after Simon Grayson made four changes to Tuesday's last-gasp defeat to Derby.

Despite the lack of game time, the 28-year-old put in a resilient performance and Spurr was glad to complete his debut with a win and a clean sheet.

"It's been frustrating for me not playing," said the summer signing; "but I've managed to get the start today and we've got the clean sheet so it's a good weekend all round.

"If you look at the performances this season, we've played well in parts but today we managed to put a 90 minute performance together which is what we were after and it paid off. 

"The lads played with a tempo and pressed high and made it difficult for them to play at home.

"We missed a few chances and could have scored more, but all in all it's a positive performance."
