Preston North End top scorer Scott Sinclair added to his season’s total with the match-winning goal in Wednesday’s trip to Birmingham City.
The Lilywhites’ No.31 grabbed his eighth goal of the campaign - after an excellent move involving new signings Ben Whiteman and Jayson Molumby - seven of them coming away from Deepdale.
But with the Sky Sports cameras and fifth-placed Reading in PR1 this coming weekend, the attacker is hoping to add to his solitary strike on home turf.
Speaking to iFollow PNE the former Celtic man said: “It was a great performance from the team. It was good to get the three points and for me personally, scoring away again, it seems to have become a habit.
“Hopefully I can bring that form to the home games and we can keep winning.
“It was a tough game in tough conditions on Wednesday, with the heavy rain, but these are things we have to deal with and put in the performances.”
As mentioned previously, Scott combined well with new Irish midfielder Molumby for the first and the 31-year-old feels that have added a freshness to the group.
“All the new lads did really well,” he continued. “There is healthy competition now. That’s what you get when new players come in. Everyone has upped their game and it is great that they have come in and done so well.
“When you see new faces around the place it does uplift the atmosphere and everything around the training ground and the competitiveness in training does go up a notch.”
The visitors have been in good form of late and occupy one of the coveted Play-Off spots after three wins and a draw in their last four league games and Scott wants to try and get the win to keep the pressure on those above the tenth-placed Lilywhites.
“They are a good side. We got a good result away when we played them, but we have to deal with this game. We need to take what comes and do what we need to try and get the three points.
“The position we are in at the moment, all the teams above us will be looking over their shoulders, so it is for us to keep pushing, keep winning and put the pressure on them,” he added.
