Browne Sees ‘Great Opportunity’ To Go On Run

7 February 2022

Alan Browne feels Preston North End have a great opportunity to put a strong run together in the coming weeks to push themselves up the Championship table.

PNE have proven hard to beat in the last couple of months, and head in to Wednesday night’s game against Huddersfield Town on the back of picking up eight points from their last four games.

The most recent of those was the weekend’s away victory against Hull City, with Cameron Archer’s second goal for the club giving the Lilywhites all three points, and club captain Browne feels a return to Deepdale midweek is something to now take advantage of.

He told iFollow PNE: “It's a great opportunity for us to build on that and really put a strong run together.

“I think draws and losses aren’t something we’re looking at, you want to see the W on your last few results.

“I think back-to-back wins in this league at any time of the season is really important and can really project you up the league so that’s what we’ll be looking to do, and if we can manage that then it’ll be a good couple of weeks.”

Since manager Ryan Lowe was appointed, PNE have lost just one of their nine Championship games.

While recognising the importance of being hard to beat, Browne is looking to get more wins on the board, with four of the results in that nine-game period being draws.

“For us it’s obviously good to have been quite solid and lost only one game but we need to start turning draws into wins,” he added.

“I think that’s really important. You might take a loss here and there to then go and win a couple of games.

“It’s a good thing for our confidence and our momentum not to lose games, but I think the more we can win the better off we’ll be.”

In Huddersfield Town, PNE’s No.8 will come up against a side on Wednesday who he has enjoyed many a good game against.

He’s netted four times in seven appearances against the Terriers, with two of those coming in a comeback victory at the John Smith’s Stadium last season, but Browney remembers a different 2-1 win, back in February 2016.

On his form against the West Yorkshire side, Browney said: “It's not something that will come into my mind when I’m facing them, but now that you mention it the goals seem to come back into the memory.

“I obviously have some good memories against them. I think I scored late on at home at Deepdale one year, I scored in a 2-1 win after we were 1-0 down to go on to win the game, so I’ve had some really good memories and hopefully I can add to that on Wednesday night.”
