Greg Raring To Go

17 November 2016

After a couple of weeks without a game due to the international break, Greg Cunningham is raring to go again this weekend.

North End now have three home games from the next four and the Irishman is hoping the Lilywhites can continue their impressive home form of late. 

Speaking of the return to action, Cunningham said: "We are all looking forward to it, we had a couple of days off last week which was nice to recharge the batteries, a bit of a change of scenery and we've had a good week of training and we are raring to go now ready for Saturday. 

"The atmosphere has always been fantastic at home, we've had some great support and with Newcastle bringing the numbers they did and the numbers that we brought it was close to a sell out.

"The atmosphere was electric and it's just as important for these games that we give the fans something to shout about and make sure we are up for it no matter who we play. 

"It's vital to win your home games then try and pick up points away, we are trying to make Deepdale a fortress and be defensively solid and take our chances."

First up at Deepdale is Wolverhampton Wanderers who will be led for the first time by new manager Paul Lambert, and the 25-year-old admits that the focus will have to be on PNE this weekend rather than the oppostition who will be somewhat of an unknown quantity. 

"It's always a bit of an unknown when a new manager comes in to a club and tries to stamp on his own style of play.

"We just need to make sure that we continue to do what we have been doing over the past couple of months. Set up well defensively, take our chances and we will see where that goes. 

"We were unlucky at the start of the season when we were playing well but we didn't have the rub of the green. In the last couple of months we have had the results that we deserve and we want to keep that going, keep out performances high and as consistent as possible."
