Alex Neil’s men have done well on their travels so far this season, with comeback victories coming against Derby County and Brentford, while they picked up a point when they faced Norwich City.

They’ll also be looking to get back to winning ways following Sunday afternoon’s defeat at home to Cardiff City.

Scott told iFollow PNE: “It’s another tough game, they’ve had some changes coming to the club and players obviously leaving but for us it’s to go there and get the win.

“Our away form has been decent so hopefully we’ll keep that up and keep getting three points.

“We’re a little bit disappointed from yesterday but look there’s another game on Wednesday and hopefully we can bounce on now and turn a negative into a positive.”

The Cardiff loss marked a third league defeat at home for North End this season, a trend matched across the division with just one home team coming out on top this weekend, and Scotty thinks that the lack of home supporters makes a big difference.

He said: “I think it’s probably got something to do with the home fans – not having your own fans sort of support you, but this is what we’re in now and we’ve got to move on and keep going to win games.

“When you go into the game obviously there’s no atmosphere, there’s no sort of booing or screaming so it’s taken time to get used to.

A Match To Remember: Queens Park Rangers

“It’s the norm at the moment but hopefully the fans are allowed in. It’ll probably be some time next year now, but we’ve just got to get on with it and keep doing as well as we can, keep giving it 100 per cent and keep trying to play well.

“I think it comes down to self-motivation, I think you’ve got to get yourself up for it. When you go out there there’s no sort of atmosphere but it’s still a game, it’s an important game every single time we play so when you go out there it’s about getting yourself up for it, treating it as a normal game which it is but just with no fans.”

Away from home has been a different story though, and Scott has certainly thrived, having scored three goals in his last two.

“It’s great for myself to get the goals and to obviously help the team which have been doing well so far, but we need more wins now and to get them under our belt, but at the same time with our away form, hopefully we can keep that up.”
