Pottsy On ‘Unbelievable Feeling’ Of Last-Gasp Winner

10 April 2023

Brad Potts described his last-minute winner against Reading as an “unbelievable feeling” as Preston North End won for a third game in succession.

North End deservedly went ahead in the 56th minute thanks to Tom Cannon’s sixth goal in as many games, before the visitors pulled a goal back against the run of play seven minutes from time.

It looked as though PNE would be made to settle for just the one point until Pottsy popped up in the second minute of stoppage-time to win the game and cause carnage inside Deepdale.

He told iFollow: “Obviously after the way we played, I think it was frustrating to be 1-1 going into the final few minutes.

“To be honest with you, I’m not normally in the box for corners and free-kicks. I just thought I’m going to get myself in there because I knew we needed a goal. 

“Thankfully it dropped to us and it was an unbelievable feeling when it goes in the back of the net.

“With last-minute goals, the celebration probably does get a little bit out of hand.

“I’m just delighted but I’ll be having a few words with Leds [Ryan Ledson] because I think he just about took my neck off like!”

Gaffer Reacts To ‘Great Moment’ As PNE Win Late Against Reading

10 April 2023

PNE had a host of opportunities to go ahead before they did manage to make a deserved breakthrough, with goalscorer Cannon coming close on a couple of occasions in the first half, as well as the likes of Andrew Hughes and Potts himself.

There was pace to North End’s play all day long and the wing back – who has now netted in consecutive home matches – feels the performance was up there among the best this campaign.

He said: “At the minute it doesn’t matter how you play really, but you’ve got to get the three points. 

“I think the way we did play was probably one of the best we have all season to be honest with you. 

“I thought we totally dominated the game. Obviously we missed chances, but apart from that we looked really good. 

“As I said, it’s all about getting three points at the minute, but it was good as well to play as well as we did.”
