Horgan: ‘We're Not Far Away’

9 January 2018

After one defeat in 11 games, winger Daryl Horgan believes North End are in a good position going into the second half of the season.

The Lilywhites are three points outside the Play-Off places and the 25-year-old has said his team are coming into good form.

Speaking to iFollow PNE ahead of Saturday's trip to Millwall, the Irishman said: “We’re looking good for the second half of the season. The second half against Middlesbrough was disappointing, but the first half was scintillating – we should have been four or five up.

“The beauty of the Championship is no game is over. Hopefully we can kick on because I definitely think the Play-Offs are within our reach, if not further.”

Horgan has been a key figure during the Christmas period for Alex Neil's side and impressed against Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday, scoring the third goal in the rout at Adams Park.

He said: “I’m delighted because it’s been a tough first half to the season. It was frustrating because I was working hard in training and not getting the chances, but when I did get the chances I didn’t play as well as I wanted to.

“Thankfully I’ve worked away, the manager has given me a chance and I’ve done well, but there is still room for improvement.”

North End face Millwall at the Den this weekend, with over 1000 fans making the trip to London, and Horgan has said the away following has been outstanding this season.

“It really can make a difference,” said Horgan. “That bit of noise behind you is brilliant, especially when you are going to a hostile place like The Den.

“Hopefully we can get a good result and we can go home happy.”
