Liam: “We Probably Should Have Won The Game”

24 September 2023

Liam Lindsay felt Preston North End could have taken more from their visit to Rotherham, but was pleased to see the unbeaten run continue.

PNE were playing some good stuff in South Yorkshire but fell behind in the 35th minute to Rotherham United’s first and only shot of the game, which came from former North End striker Jordan Hugill.

Ryan Lowe’s side levelled things up in the final minute of the half through Liam, who headed home from a Robbie Brady corner, and the visitors then had a number of chances in the second period to extend the winning streak to seven matches.

Liam said: “I think it went how we expected it. I think we created a lot more chances than they did and probably should have won the game, but the unbeaten run continues so we just need to keep looking forward. 

“I think it was a game we all thought we could get the three points, but we just didn’t take our chances really, and they took their – well it wasn’t even a half chance – it was just a great finish to be fair. That’s a game of football.

“We’ve had more chances today than we have in any other game and we're still unbeaten so [we need to] keep continuing that.”

The central defender wasn’t pleased with the role he played in the opening goal of the game, feeling that he could have cleared the ball before Hugill picked it up and curled into the top corner.

He soon had redemption, though, as he headed in his second of the campaign just before the break.

The leveller ensured PNE’s unbeaten run stretched to eight matches, however there was a slight feeling of disappointment in the dressing room that they missed out on an unprecedented seventh successive victory.

Liam said: “I think we were a bit down because it was a good opportunity for us to get seven wins on the bounce which is pretty unheard of.

“The gaffer ended up coming in and telling us to keep our heads up, and a point away at Rotherham is nothing to shake your head at.”

North End will now have a full week’s preparation for the visit of West Brom, which will be followed by trips to Leicester City and Ipswich Town.

“We’re unbeaten so we can’t get any more confidence from our start so I think we’re all looking forward to it,” Liam added.

“Leicester will be up there and Ipswich are a good side, so we’ll see where we’re at.”
