Reach On Regaining Momentum

7 March 2016

Adam Reach is hoping PNE can get back on a winning run and build on Saturday's draw with Brighton and Hove Albion.

After the disappointment of the defeat to Cardiff City the week before, Reach was happy PNE could bounce back quickly with a terrific point against the Seagulls, and is looking to take that momentum into Tuesday's game against Nottingham Forest. 

Speaking to PNE PlayerHD ahead of the match, the on loan Middlesbrough man said:"No team is going to go the season unbeaten, the true champions lose and then go on another run. Off the top of my head I think that's what we've done everytime that we've had a disappointing result, we have gone on a run of good games afterwards.

"Obviously that first one against Brighton is out of the way now and we've got two very winnable games I think if we go and perform well. If we are disciplined and take our chances then there's a lot of points up for grabs. 

"You never know what's around the corner, so you can't even get complacent, but on the flip side don't ever think that you can't win a game because you can.

"I think that's what we've done very well since I came, we've respected every team but we've also been confident in ourselves."

With two games against sides in the bottom half this week, the 23-year-old sees an opportunity to take points from both fixtures, but knows admits North End must not be complacent. 

"We have another tough two games this week but if we go with a game plan, be disciplined, and take our chances when we get them then we could have six points.

"We can't get complacent though, yes Forest have lost four games in a row but all runs come to an end and they are going to have to pick up a result at some point but hopefully if we put on a disciplined performance like we always do away from home, we've got a good away record at the minute, there's certainly points to be taken.

"They are low on confidence, the fans there expect better than what they are doing at the moment so if we can quieten the crowd and then we get the ball and do what we can and hopefully take three points.

"They have got good players who can hurt you on their day so we need to respect them but if we play anywhere near as well as we can then it will be a good game and I think it's a chance to take some points.

"It's important to get a run going, especially at this time of the season when there's a lot to play for at the bottom and the top. Teams are fighting for every point they can, and if we can take away four or six points on top of the draw with Brighton then you can't ask for much more in the Championship from three games in a week."
