Harrop 'Ready To Go Again'

6 September 2017

Josh Harrop is raring to go again this weekend at Deepdale with the international break now out of the way.

Harrop has recovered from an injury picked up in pre-season and although he has featured in recent games, the midfielder is hoping to step up his involvement and secure a place in the starting Xl.

On the start of the 2017/18 campaign, the 21-year-old said: "We've had a good start to the season, it's been good to get some rest into the lads' legs and get everyone back going.

"We are really happy as a team and we feel confident, we've had a bit of a rest now but we've still been working hard in the training sessions we've had but we are ready to go again and we are raring to go.

"It's been a bit of a slow start for me, I've not started many games yet but I've had a bit of an injury which I've had to come back from so I'm just looking to get as many games as I can now and to start performing.

"The injury set me back a little bit because I got a niggle but I'm feeling good now, I'm feeling very fit so I just can't wait to start playing and it's going to be a good season I hope."

The next test for Alex Neil's side is the visit of Barnsley this weekend, the first of two home games in four days, and Harrop feels the confidence is high within the dressing room going into a busy month of games.

"We go into every game now believing we can win and we go into every game proving what a good team we are so the plan at the weekend will be to go and win the game and all the lads are confident we can do that and we are looking forward to the weekend.

"The aim is to win every game and we will go out there and try and do that, we have a couple of games at home now and we've performed well at home so far so it will be good for us to get back playing at home after this international break.

"We don't mind away games as well because we know we've got to go out there and do the job away from home as well.

The former Manchester United youngster was on the scoresheet in the Lancashire Senior Cup on Tuesday against Burnley, and he is now hoping to bring that to his game in the Championship.

"It's always good to get a goal, it sort of sets me off now so I'm hoping to get a few more, you've just got to get off the mark which I am now so I will be hoping to get a few more this season.

"I want to be scoring and assisting goals, that's my game, I got one of each yesterday so that's set me off well and that's what I want to take into the weekend."
