Daniel Iversen reflects on his year and a half on loan at Preston North End in the last edition of The One And Only for the 2021/22 campaign!

As PNE welcome Middlesbrough to Deepdale for the final game of the season, on-loan Leicester City goalkeeper Iversen talks all about his time with the Lilywhites in an extended interview.

Also in the programme, Cameron Archer answers fan questions, while Andrew Hughes, Daniel Johnson and Josh Earl take part in other player features.

There's also our usual 11-page focus on our visitors, a look back in time and we get the latest from the Preston North End Community and Education Trust.

Read part of Daniel Iversen's interview below:

Speaking to The One And Only about his time with the club, Daniel said: “I’ve enjoyed it a lot. I’ve played a lot of games and it’s been a good year and a half, so I’m really pleased to have played for Preston North End.

“At first it was just about going out to play some games, so it didn’t really matter where, I just wanted to play.

“But I’m really happy it ended up being here. I’m pleased I’ve played so many games for this club.”

Given his performances this season, it’s a surprise that the reason for his first loan to North End actually came about because he became second choice with OH Leuven, a Belgian side who he joined on loan at the start of the 2020/21 campaign.

Following the injury troubles of Declan Rudd at Deepdale, though, the club moved to sign the Dane, who left his spell early with Leuven in favour of signing for PNE.

Alex Neil was the man in charge when he first stepped through the door, and the goalkeeper admits he didn’t have the easiest time understanding the manager’s thick Scottish accent!

Dan laughed: “He rang me a couple of days before I signed and it was like ‘just say yes and hopefully that’s right’.

“When I met him here, it was more easy. I knew Polly [Mike Pollitt] to start with from Rotherham so he made it a little bit easier to come into training as I knew his sessions.

“It was an easy club to come into, just the dressing room, the staff and everyone around the place are nice people.”
