Robinson Talks Familiar Faces

3 April 2017

Callum Robinson is preparing to go head to head with a number of familiar faces on Tuesday night at Deepdale.

North End host Bristol City on Tuesday evening, seeing a return to PR1 for former players Bailey Wright and Josh Brownhill.
With Wright only making the move from PNE back in January, Robinson admits it's a strange feeling to be coming up against the Aussie defender but insists all friendships will go out of the window at kick-off. 
"It's a bit mad because through all of my loans here and even the start of this season Bails was a really good player so I will be looking forward to playing against some players that I know and also Bails. 
"I know a lot of the players and obviously Josh Brownhill went there as well, then there are players like Bobby Reid, Korey Smith, Aaron Wilbraham, there is still quite a chunk of players there from the League One season and also when I was there on loan in the Championship.
"Obviously I know them but we need to get the three points, I know that and if I'm selected I will give my all to the team and hopefully we can get the win.
After picking up a point against Nottingham Forest on Saturday, North End moved up to eighth in the Championship and will be looking to close the six-point gap with a victory over the Robins. 
"We were a little bit disappointed not to get the three points on Saturday but to be fair to Nottingham Forest they were really good, especially in the first half. 
"It's like a six-pointer now going into the Bristol City game." 
"Bristol have got some good young players and some good experienced players, they've put a lot of money into the club, they've got a nice ground now and they are looking to move forward.
"They are obviously struggling and they need to get points so we know it's going to be a tough game again but we've got got to bring our 'A game' and make sure that we don't have the first half that we had on Saturday and we play well for the whole 90 minutes."
