Neil Looking To Add Goals

28 December 2017

"It's one of those things I can hopefully carry on and take in to this game, we've been doing well as of late, we've been unbeaten so hopefully we can carry on that little run against Cardiff on Friday.

"There's a real belief in the changing room. I think as the results have not gone our way as much as we would have liked them to the last few games, we always want to improve.

"We always want to go one better than what we did the game before so I think that with the work we've been doing on the training pitch and with a lot of games coming around thick and fast, it's one of those things where you can quickly improve on the last game.

"You've got to win your individual battles and for me personally, I know that playing against Morrison and Bamba is a tough test. They've got good players and they are very physical players but I relish the challenge.

"It's one of those things where you know they are going to come out fighting so you've got to be on it from the very start."

On Cardiff City's season so far, the striker continued: "They deserve to be in the position that they are in at the moment and I think that come the end of the season they are still going to be there or thereabouts.

"You want to test yourselves against the top teams, you look at the league now and it's starting to take shape, we know where we want to be so we need to do well against the teams that are up there as well competing with us.

Hugill is the club's leading goalscorer this season going into the final game of the calendar year and after ending last season top of the goalscoring charts, the forward is pleased with his form during 2017.

"I'm very pleased, it's been a great year for me personally and a brilliant year for Preston to be honest. We can only take what has happened this year and improve on it, I think there's a lot of room for improvement with the team and for me personally.

"You can never stop improving, you can never stop learning. I look at other strikers like myself, regardless of what league they are in, and look at the way they play and see that it's how I want to play, I want to add this to my game, I want to add that to my game. So there is always that willingness to learn from me."
