Hugill Hoping For Derby Day Repeat

7 December 2016

Jordan Hugill will be aiming to help PNE to another derby day victory this weekend when Blackburn Rovers come to Deepdale.

Hugill scored in two big derby wins last season against Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers, and is aiming for more of the same on Saturday. 

"It's going to be a great month for the club, there are a lot of big games coming up. Obviously we've got the derby this weekend against Blackburn, I'm really looking forward to the game.

"We gave them a good game last time at Ewood Park, obviously I got on the scoresheet and hopefully I can do that again this weekend. 

"No one is going to want a draw from this game, the fact it's a derby game gives it that added edge as well and added motivation to win the game so I think both teams will be looking to go out and do that so we will see what happens when the game starts."

The 24-year-old is hoping the atmosphere from the home fans at Deepdale will replicate that of the away end at Ewood, when 7,000 North End fans packed out the Darwen End to cheer on the boys. 

"The atmosphere at Ewood Park was electric with all of the fans we brought and they didn't stop singing all game. 

"Hopefully we can bring that again this Saturday, especially with it being on the TV, hopefully the fans will come out in their numbers again."
