Liam: “Literally Only The Goals Are Missing”

16 August 2022

Following a goalless draw at home to Rotherham United, Liam Lindsay said “only the goals are missing” from Preston North End’s game at the moment.

Ryan Lowe’s men were dominant from start to finish under the lights at Deepdale, having 21 shots at goal, but ultimately they were unable to break the deadlock.

Keeping a clean sheet at the other end meant it was four from four in the Championship so far this season, however it’s just the one goal scored.

Speaking to iFollow PNE, Liam said: “Literally only the goals are missing, but listen we’ve had four clean sheets on the bounce, and that’s not just defenders, that’s everyone as a team working together.

“Us defenders could probably help chip in with a goal as well, me tonight especially, I think I had a couple of chances.

“Things are looking positive, and hopefully we go and put in a positive performance on Saturday."

The Scottish centre half could have got on the scoresheet himself, as he mentioned, getting on the end of a couple of corners from Robbie Brady.

North End finished the game with 63% possession and 21 shots, to Rotherham’s five, so there was a definite sense of frustration that the goal never came.

Asked if the players felt frustrated, Liam said: “I think everyone in the stadium is probably the same.

“I think we dominated them from start to finish, we just couldn’t find that goal.

“But we kept the back door shut, which is a positive, and we just need to look at positives at the minute because it’ll start coming.”

Liam himself finished the game with the EPIC Risk Management man of the match award, although he admitted he’d have preferred to have taken the three points for the team.

He’s featured in all four league games so far this season, helping his side keep clean sheets in all of them.

He added: “I don’t want to jinx myself, but everyone’s feeling good and you can’t not be [happy] with four clean sheets in the league.

“Everyone’s feeling good and long may it continue.”
