McGeady Aiming For Positive Run Of Results

26 September 2016

Winger Aiden McGeady is hoping PNE can go on a run after three wins in four games for the Lilywhites.

After victory on Friday night at Deepdale, McGeady is hoping North End can maintain their recent form and go on a winning run in the Championship. 

"The key in football is to try and maintain a steady line and not get too carried away with positive things and not too down when negative things happen.

"That's the way I try to be in football but we obviously want to go on a bit of a run and maintain the way we have been playing. 

"Hopefully we can put a run together now of maybe three, four or five games and try and climb our way up the table."

Next up for Simon Grayson's side is a trip to the Midlands to face Birmingham City, speaking of the game, the Republic of Ireland international continued: "It will be a tough game, I think they've been doing quite well so far this season. I played against them last season, it was actually my full debut for Wednesday and it was a tough game at St Andrew's. 

"We ended up winning 2-1 but it's always a difficult place to go, they are a well organised team and it will be a good match up I think."

With two games to go until the international break, the 30-year-old will be hoping to impress his national team manager after being selected in the Republic of Ireland squad for their upcoming games against Georgia and Moldova. 

The focus is on the next few games for McGeady though, who is just happy to be playing again and being around first team football on a weekly basis. 

Speaking of his time at Deepdale since joining in the summer, he said: "It's been good so far, I'm getting to know the lads, I've already played four games, four 90 minutes so I can't complain.

"We've got a couple of wins since I came in and a much needed win on Friday night against Wigan, things have been going well and I've just been enjoying it.

"It's been refreshing for me to go from what I was like last season and the start of this season, to now be playing every week and being amongst the lads and training every day competitively. 

"In the games that I've played I've completed every game, obviously I missed the game against Bournemouth because the manager left me and a couple of the lads behind, partly because we've played so many games with three games in a week.  

"It's been a breath of fresh air, I'm just enjoying getting playing again and looking forward to matchdays."
