Ched Evans relives his best moment in a Preston North End shirt and reveals dentist trips every week
and live on Freeview channel 276
Evans’ header in the 93rd minute was enough to win the game at the Bet365 Stadium, sending the Welshman and the travelling support into hysteria.
And so far, nothing compares when it comes to his time at PNE.
He said: “I had a few attempts before but the delivery was perfect, the connection was good and to watch it nestle at the back stick was nice but it was also nice for the fans as well.
“There is no better feeling, it was a special moment for me - probably the best in a Preston shirt yet. The way the team performed is how we perform when we're at our best. We're hard to beat.
"We had a few half chances, the save for Ben Woodburn's shot was unbelievable but the grit and passion that we showed throughout the game, and to get the goal in the last few minutes was brilliant.”
Evans’ goal jumped PNE up five places in the Championship table into 10th and keeps them in the running for a play-off place, currently just a couple of points off the pace despite losing three games in a row before victory at Stoke.
He was quick to wheel away after watching his glancing header come off the inside of the far post and into the net - in the excitement he chose to take off his shirt, resulting in a booking.
But could that be the best booking he receives all season?
Evans said: "Yeah, definitely! I struggled to get my shirt off for a bit, it was a bit sticky! But it's pure passion, when you've worked so hard to get what you've set out for in the game in the last few minutes is mega.
"It's mega for the team, mega for the mentality and mega for the club. It was about getting back to what we're good at as a team. We created chances, we had chances to score, we defended really well. Freddie Woodman makes a great save in the first half and it's being hard to beat, not conceding and then nicking them goals.”
Evans now has six goals in his last seven games for PNE, those goals responsible for six points on their own.
He his growing more and more into a key figure for North End and a man both the players and fans look towards to deliver and that is not at all something that Evans is fazed by.
The 34-year-old is prepared to do what he can to help his side to the points, which even lately includes sacrificing his own teeth – starting with his second goal of six to win the game at Reading in November.
He said: “I'll always take the responsibility. I'll never shy away from any challenge on the pitch, I think that is clear to see. I'll always put my body on the line, literally. That's all I can do week to week and hope that it pays off.
"I've been to the dentist every week for the past five weeks. I've hurt my nose, I'm going to need some stitches in my mouth but I'll take that every week if I get a goal in return.”
