Harrison: Hard Work In Training Ahead Of Preston Game
By Callum Insull
Youth team forward James Harrison says his goal that was ruled out in last weekend's stalemate at Fleetwood Town was really ‘unlucky’, but insists if the team continue to put strong performances in they will get the wins.
The Seasiders picked up a point last time out, as they were held to a goalless draw by Fleetwood Town.
Winger James Harrison knows all about how important it is to be in the right place at the right time as an attacking player, just like he did at Myerscough on Saturday.
“I’m an attacking winger and Johnny (Johnston) and Jake (Daniels) have good movement as a front two so we are always causing problems for the opposition as we have the pace to do so.”
Harrison expressed that the team played well, but not well enough to break Fleetwood down who did a good job of frustrating John Murphy’s side and says they will change that ahead of the next game.
“Fleetwood seemed to be happy to defend in numbers and tried to catch us on the break a few times.
“We will work hard in training this week as we always do.”
Talking about one of the few clear-cut chances in the game, which happened to be a disallowed goal from Harrison, the young Seasider said, “the goal that was ruled out was really unlucky. I thought at the time I held my run well.
“I took one touch and finished well into the top corner for what I thought was the match winner, only to see the flag up.”
Having been on top for the majority of the game, especially in the second half, Harrison felt like he and his fellow teammates were hard done by not to take all three points from the game.
“Watching the footage back, I’m clearly onside so it’s a frustrating one to take.”
Next up for the side is a trip not too far away to Preston to face North End.
“Preston are a very strong team and we’ve had some good games against them. They won’t sit as deep as Fleetwood did so we will work hard and defend as a team.”
Harrison feels if they do more of the same going forward, the rewards will come this coming Saturday.
“We’ll look to get in behind them with our pace. We are a good team and I’m confident if we do put in a good performance, we're more than capable of getting the win.”
