Jordan Storey Hoping For More Memorable Afternoons

23 January 2019

Centre half Jordan Storey got his first goal in Preston North End colours last weekend in a tremendous away performance and he hopes there are plenty more like it to come.

The No.14 scored the second goal in the 4-1 win, slamming home a volley after Ben Davies has flicked on Paul Gallagher’s right wing free kick, before flicking on another Gallagher set piece to set up Alan Browne’s third and he acknowledges it was a red letter day for the 21-year-old.
 
“It was a memorable afternoon for me,” he told iFollowPNE. “To win the game, in the manner that we did, on the back of a few draws and defeats was great and to chip in with a goal and an assist was great for me.
 
“I think if I had hit the ball with my left foot it was going over, so I thought I’d go with my right, first time and luckily enough it went in the back of the net, so I was pleased with it.
 
“You always have to be expecting it to come your way and be on your toes and I was quick to react to the flick on from Davo [Ben Davies] and now I have got my goal.
“For the assist, it was another great ball from Gally and I just tried to get anything I could on it and thankfully Browney was in the right place to put it away and from there we put the game to bed.
“We controlled the game from early on and as the goals began to come in, we took even more advantage and grew into it.”
 
The Yeovil-born man’s burgeoning partnership with Ben Davies was in impressive form against a tough forward line of Nahki Wells and Matt Smith, against Steve McClaren’s men and Jordan fells it is something that will continue to develop the more games they play together.
 
“We are young, but game after game we have built an understanding together and we have looked pretty solid in every game we have played,” he continued.
 
“We both enjoy the job of defending. We are still developing and game by game we will understand each other more and more. We hope to keep improving with every game.”
 
The next test is up against Stoke City and whilst they also have a formidable squad their disposal, the former Exeter City defender says the Lilywhites are more than capable of repeating their display in the capital last Saturday.
 
“We have to take each game individually. We can’t under-estimate or over-estimate any teams; we have to face them head on and we know we are more than capable of putting in another excellent performance.
 
“All the lads are fighting for a place in the team. It is a big help when you have strength in depth and things can only get better for us, now we have numbers back available for the manager,” he added.
