Liam Expecting Good Battle At Norwich

6 October 2022

Liam Lindsay expects a good battle this weekend when Preston North End take on second-placed Norwich City away from home.

PNE head into the fixture fresh from the midweek victory over West Brom, while the Canaries were held to a point a day earlier against Reading.

They’ve made a fast start to the season though, sat second in the table with an impressive 24 points from their 12 matches played.

Speaking to iFollow PNE, Liam said: “They’re flying so it’ll be a tough test.

“Obviously they came down last year so they’ve still got Premier League players, so it’ll be a tough test, especially away from home, but I’m sure we’ll give it our all and give them a good battle.

“I think if you look at last season’s results, we’ve always done well against them kind of teams, so hopefully it happens again Saturday.”

Liam himself goes into the game no doubt full of confidence, having been named the EPIC Risk Management man of the match for the fourth time this season on Wednesday night.

That was after he helped the Lilywhites keep a ninth clean sheet of the league campaign, and he’s featured in every single minute of that action.

Speaking about his recent awards, Liam said: “I didn’t expect it last night, but it’s been a good start to the season for me, and I hope I can get a few more.

“Of course it’s nice. It gives you a little bit of confidence, but I’d rather three points.

“If I get three points on top of that, then even better.”

He came up with countless blocks once again to keep the Baggies at bay, especially in the second half when North End had to dig deep to see the victory through.

PNE got an early lead courtesy of Emil Riis, and created further chances in the first half, before having to soak up some pressure in the second.

Liam added: “I think in the first half we played some good stuff, probably could have been two or three up come half-time, but I think the second half was a slight contrast.

“We defended well and kept the back door shut, but we didn’t really create much, but at the end of the day the three points is what we came for.

“I think we’re a bit sick of the 0-0s so thankfully we got the goal, defended as we have done for the full season, and it was good to give the fans something to cheer about as well.”
