Storey Disappointed PNE Couldn't Capitalise On Chances

6 August 2022

Man of the match Jordan Storey was disappointed PNE couldn’t capitalise on the chances which fell their way in the goalless draw at home to Hull City.

The central defender, in his 100th game for the club, played on the right-hand side of a defence which limited the Tigers to very little.

At the other end, North End had plenty of chances to win the game, with the likes of Troy Parrott and Robbie Brady coming very close, but ultimately the goal never came.

Speaking to iFollow PNE, Jordan said: “I think for how well we played at times, it’s very disappointing to come away with one point.

“We created quite a lot of chances and unfortunately we couldn’t capitalise on it.

“They hardly had a sniff. They only had one shot on target in the whole game so I think to not take our chances and capitalise on it is disappointing because we were the better team throughout the game.”

Emil Riis probably had the best chance of the first half for PNE, seeing a fourth-minute effort kept out by Matt Ingram.

Ingram was busy again in the second period, with his most important act being to deny Spurs loanee Parrott from a one-on-one situation, while he was helpless when he also saw former Hull man Brady hit the woodwork.

Jordan added: “As a team I think we worked really well. Like I said we have been creating chances, we just haven’t been taking them.

“I think we’d be even more disappointed if we weren’t creating chances at all, the chances are there.

“The movement, the style of play’s there, it’s just the end product really.

“I think as soon as that goal comes in, they’ll flood in hopefully and I think when the goals come we’ll definitely start to pick up points and win games.”

Despite ultimately being disappointed to have not ended the day with three points, it was still a positive one for 24-year-old Jordan, who ended his 100th appearance for the club with the EPIC Risk Management man of the match award.

“It’s nice to get the man of the match [award] on my 100th game,” added Jordan. “I think it’s good that the money goes to a charity of our choice as well, it’s good from the club.

Lowe Looking For Clinical Touch

“I think it’s just disappointing we couldn’t top it off with a win.”

Having been away on loan at Sheffield Wednesday last season, Jordan returned to PNE in the summer with a clear idea of working his way back in to contention for first team football.

He’s certainly done that, having started both games so far this season, and he's looking to maintain his place in the side.

On his aims, Jordan said: “I think cementing my place and just to keep building on each performance. It’s still relatively early in the season, there's still a lot more games to play and I think my main objective is to get the Play-Offs.

“I think the aim was always to try and play as many games as possible. I think to finally hit that milestone is a happy achievement for me, it’s now on to the next 100 really.”
