Woods: "It's A Club You Want To Be Part Of"

16 October 2017

Calum Woods was delighted to sign a contract extension this week, extending his stay at the club until at least the summer of 2019.

Woods, who joined the club in 2014, has returned to action this season after a year out through injury, and is pleased to see his hard work during his recovery pay off.

On extending his contract, the 30-year-old said: "I'm absolutely delighted to sign an extension to my deal, it's a great feeling to know that I'm going to be at this club even longer.

"It was a dark place when I got my injury so it feels like all that hard work has paid off now, I'm just absolutely delighted.

"It's a club that you definitely want to be a part of at the minute. You see where we are in the league at the minute and you look at where we actually could have been as well if we were to win the game on Saturday, we could have been even higher up the table.

The defender is also enjoying the new style of play under manager Alex Neil, he continued:

"You've seen throughout the season so far, the manager has come in and put his stamp on things and the way we have been playing under the new manager has been brilliant."

After two appearances so far this season, Woods came back into the team against Fulham and was delighted to get his first full 90 minutes of competitive action under his belt since the injury.

On his return, Woods added: "I've had a few games now and so I've got over that fear of anything happening and I'm made up to get through those games and obviously to get 90 minutes on Saturday was a big thing. Obviously we didn't get the result that we feel we should have got but there's no point dwelling on that now.

"We will focus on this Saturday against Wolves and be ready to go again."

With North End in fine form after nine games unbeaten, Woods sees no reason why the club can't maintain their league position and feels there is nobody to fear in the Championship.

"We just need to take each game as it comes but we've played a lot of the top teams now and we've got nothing to fear against anyone.

"We believe that we can go anywhere and we can beat anyone at home and you never know where that will take us.

"You see the amount of chances we are creating against these good teams, we could have scored four or five on Saturday so we need to take our chances and if we keep doing what we are doing then who knows. "
