Robbie: “We Won’t Be Taking Anyone For Granted”

28 March 2024

Robbie Brady says Preston North End will be taking no one for granted in the remaining nine games of the season, as teams fight for points at both ends of the table.

North End kick off the end-of-season run-in on Good Friday when Rotherham United are the visitors to Deepdale.

The Millers arrive in desperate need of points as they sit bottom of the Sky Bet Championship, while PNE are looking to keep within touching distance of the top six.

Robbie said: “I think at this stage of the season everyone is sort of fighting for their lives at the bottom of the table. They’re looking to pick up points.

“We’re at the opposite end wanting to push forward now and have a right push at the end so I think it’ll be a competitive game definitely, which I think all the games will be now until the end.

“We need to prepare as well as we can and make sure we get the points we need. We won’t be taking anyone for granted now.

“We’ll take each game as it comes, starting with Rotherham tomorrow, and we’ll be all guns blazing to come out and get the win we need.”

Four of North End’s remaining nine matches are at Deepdale, where PNE have been strong on the whole so far this term, having taken 31 points in 19 matches.

Robbie feels those games on home turf could have a big part to play.

“They’re massive,” he said. “As you’ve seen over the last while the atmosphere at the ground has been excellent and we need it to be the same and help us when teams get tough in the game to give us that extra push.

“I think it’s sort of all hands on deck now until the end of the season. There's four home games to go and we’ll be looking to pick up the points at home.”

During the international break, the 32-year-old was one of four North End players away representing their country.

The Republic of Ireland international started both games at the Aviva Stadium against Belgium and Switzerland to take his tally to 62.

“It was great,” said Robbie, reflecting on the international break. “Obviously personally it was great to be back and get back into the fold and play a couple of games. I love being back there so it meant the world to me being back playing for my country.


“It’s not to be taken for granted. I had a bit of time out but to get back in and play was excellent.

“I’m okay. My body’s fine, took a couple of knocks in the game, but nothing I can’t get over. I’ll get a bit of treatment today and I’ll be ready to go.”
