Captain Tom Clarke believes Preston North End have got back to their best ahead of Millwall test
Tom Clarke believes Preston North End are getting back to what made them Championship play-off contenders last season.
The Lilywhites got back to winning ways with a 1-0 win at Nottingham Forest and have lost just one of their last 11 games ahead of Millwall visiting Deepdale this Saturday.
“It feels like we’re back to how we used to be,” said Clarke, who returned to action at the City Ground wearing a mask to protect his broken nose.
“We’re hard to play against, hard to beat and have that threat that our attacking players give us.
“A little run in this league can get you up the table and we’ll be looking to go on another run again after the win at Forest.
“We want to keep pushing like we did last season and get up there and there’s no reason why we can’t.
“We’ve got no-one to fear in this league.”
Millwall, like PNE, have had a slow start to the season after making a run for the play-offs previously.
Neil Harris’ men arrive in Lancashire just a point and a place outside the relegation zone.
“We know it’s going to be a tough game, we know what Millwall are about,” Clarke said.
“They’re a hard-working team and we need to be ready for them.
“The games really start to come thick and fast now.
“We want to be looking up. A good result on Saturday sets us up for a busy period.”
