Aiden McGeady Raring To Go Ahead Of The Weekend

3 November 2016

After missing out on the last five games because of injury, Aiden McGeady is chomping at the bit to be involved this weekend.

The Republic of Ireland international made a more than creditable impression in his first few weeks in a North End shirt, but that was halted after the No.14 suffered a hamstring injury during the 2-0 victory over Aston Villa last month. 

Fresh from the announcement that he is to be included in Martin O'Neill's provisional squad to face Austria, McGeady revealed to PNEPlayerHD today that he is fit and ready to go should he be chosen for this weekend's fixture against Rotherham.

"When you're injured, you just want to get yourself fit because it's never enjoyable," said McGeady. "I felt as though I could have been fit for the weekend but it was probably not worth the risk for the sake of another week.

"I've been training all week as normal and I feel ready to go for the game at the weekend. 

"The lads have been doing really well especially this month. There's been a lot of good games and it's been frustrating to have not been able to play a part but that's just part of football.

"It's been enjoyable the first four or five weeks since I came in. Getting the injury was obviously frustrating but like I say I'm ready to go for this weekend."

After picking up ten points from a possible 15 from the top four last month, confidence remains high despite last weekend's narrow defeat to Newcastle United, and McGeady declared that North End are going into the game with the same mindset with bottom of the table Rotherham United playings hosts to PNE this weekend.

"We're not approaching this game differently," he continued. "The manager has said himself that he will get us motivated in a slightly different way but when you look at the results we've been getting, if we do the same things that we've been doing, there's no reason why we can't continue to pick up points from every game."
