Bails Hoping To Break Off With Three Points

17 March 2016

Bailey Wright is hoping North End can go into the international break on a high by picking up three points on Saturday.

PNE host Queens Park Rangers at Deepdale on Saturday, and the Australian international is looking for a positive start to the two week break from Club football, as he joins up with his national side.

Speaking to PNE PlayerHD ahead of the weekend the 23-year-old said: "It'a another opportunity for us playing at home against a good QPR side who have hit a bit of form lately.

"We know that they are tucking in right behind us in the league, keeping us on our toes so it should be a good game and it would be nice to go away for the two week break with three points."

After a superb backing from the travelling North End fans against Bolton Wanderers last weekend, Wright has asked for similar support at Deepdale in the final five homes games of the campaign.

On how the fans inspire the players on the pitch, Bailey continued: "I think the fans can really help us change the game. If they are buzzing and create an atmosphere, it can really help you up your game and perform even more. Naturally you should be able to do that anyway but it definitely helps.

"Obviously the atmosphere at Bolton was unbelievable. I remember even at the start of the game just walking out, the place was rocking and all you could hear were Preston fans.

"If we could recreate that at home and get everyone really going, which we have at times this year. Sometimes it's been a little bit quiet but maybe that was the football or what, but it can go both ways.

"If we can give them something to shout about, then hopefully then can give a bit of a shout and it can help us up our game even more.

Hopefully this run in towards the end of the season we can keep getting good crowds and see where it takes us."
