Fisher Hoping To Finish Season On A High

24 April 2018

As the 2017/18 season draws to a close, Darnell Fisher is delighted with the impact he has had on the pitch in his first season at Deepdale and is hoping to finish the campaign on a high.

Fisher has been a regular in Alex Neil's starting Xl throughout the season, and with just two games left of the regular season, the right back is hoping a win on Saturday against Sheffield United can spark an exciting end to the season.

Speaking to iFollow PNE ahead of the game, the 24-year-old said: "It's good to have played so many games, obviously I've been disappointed with a few injuries but it's been good and hopefully we can finish off well and get to where we want to be.

"Saturday will be a massive, massive game and hopefully we can get the points. We obviously only got a point on Saturday which was unfortunate but hopefully we take maximum points this weekend.

"When you are out on the pitch, you just want to win. After the game on Saturday when we didn't win, we felt let down by ourselves but we gave everything and we should have scored.

"Coming in to the dressing room and seeing the table, we know we are still in with a chance. Sheffield United got beat at the weekend and so going there on Saturday will be really tough.

"They only got promoted last season so they have punched above their weight if you like, as have we, but they will want to send the fans home happy and it will be a tough game."

North End have had a terrific record on the road this season, and Fisher is hoping that can continue with a win at Bramall Lane this weekend and wants the fans to travel in their numbers to support the boys.

"When we go away from home teams have to come and try and beat us, but we are defensively sound and they do find it hard. Obviously we then go the other way and we do well, we will look forward to Saturday and hopefully we can get a result.

"The fans have been really good, at Saturday's game they were good and then QPR away was great as well so it's testament to them coming out in their numbers and getting behind the team so hopefully they will get to Sheffield and show their support."
