No Slowing Down For Greg And Co.

15 March 2016

Greg Cunningham insists North End won't be slowing down now they have met the 'magic number' of 50.

Reaching 50 points is often regarded as safety in the Championship, and though the target at the start of the season was survival, the boys won't be relaxing now they have all but achieved that. 

With PNE sitting in tenth place, just seven points off the Play-Off places, there's plenty to play for in the final nine games of the season but Simon Grayson's men will continue to take each game as it comes. 

"It's that magic number isn't it, but obviously as the season has gone on we have reached that so we want to make sure that we can keep kicking on.

"Without being to naive, we don't know where our season can go still. There's still nine games left to play, there's a lot of points to play for, so we will take each game as it comes and see where we are come the end of the season and maybe nick in that last place, but we will keep pushing on. 

"We don't want our season to just fizzle out now we've reached that magic number. We are in a position where we still have a lot to play for.

"The gaffer and the coaching staff keep reiterating that so we have nine games to go, we have a lot to play for and we will give it everything until the end of the season and see where we end up.

"We need to be solid at the back and build from that like we have done all season, I don't think we need to change too much because it's got us to the position that we are in now.

"I don't think our tactics or our game plan can go out of the window now we've reached that magic number but I suppose you could say we could now play with a little bit more freedom now that we are sort of safe.  

"We will keep playing the way we are playing and keep picking up results and see where it takes us."
