Fisher Full Of Confidence

14 September 2017

Darnell Fisher feels there is a belief in the squad that they can get their first away win of the season against Birmingham City at St Andrew's this weekend.

North End have put in some impressive performances on the road so far this campaign, picking up points against Leeds United and Middlesbrough, and Fisher believes there is still more to come from Alex Neil's side.

"I think we've had some big games and done well, especially against Cardiff who were top of the league, I think we did really well against them but Saturday is another game and it will be a hard game.

On putting three past Cardiff, Fisher continued: "I think that's been coming, we should have had that in a good few games this season, so to get three goals was good, it could have been more again but there is more to come and I think it's looking good.

The Lilywhites head into the game against Harry Redknapp's Birmingham City on the back of a 3-0 win over Cardiff City who were top of the league before Tuesday's defeat at Deepdale.

Fisher feels that game, along with recent performances on the road, mean North End can go into this weekend's game full of confidence.

"I think we are going down there with confidence, we know they've got good players but so have we, so we will go down there and give them a good game.

"I think we were really unlucky to not get a win against Middlesbrough, and even Leeds with ten men so we will take confidence from that and I think we can go down there and get some points.

"When you go away I think the most important thing it to quieten the crowd down, keep them quiet and then we can play our game and see what happens from there."

The recent form has come despite injuries to a number of key players, but the right back knows that any player who comes into the side can do a job, showcased by John Welsh who was outstanding on his first start in almost a year on Tuesday night.

"After not playing for over a year, coming in to play at that level and that intensity for 90 minutes is a testament to him as a guy and how hard he has worked.

"I think everyone that comes in slots straight into the team because we work hard out on the training field so it just goes straight into a match."
