Potts told the iFollow PNE: “I am pleased with how it has gone so far. It is good to have got off the mark with a couple of goals.

“I was brought here to try and score goals and create, so to get a goal so early, I was really happy with that.

“We have been playing at a high level as well. All the lads have been in good form since I have been here and confidence is high; we just need to try and keep that and keep this run going.

“The quality I have seen has been very good; it is obviously a step up from League One – it is going to be – but I am really enjoying it and am happy to be testing myself against better players.”

Potts says he is enjoying working with manager Alex Neil has he looks to continue to make progress.

He said:  “The manager has been great with me since I have come in. He has worked with me in training, trying to improve my game with little bits, step by step; I have really enjoyed working with him so far and look forward to continuing to do so.”

“Every game is a big game, but with it being a local derby, it gives it that extra bit to it and everybody is looking forward to it. We are on a decent run and we want to carry that on.

“With four and half thousand travelling fans you want to make them proud and give them a performance that travelling back home they are happy with, with three more points.

“They were great away at Stoke and I am sure that with more than double the amount we had down there going to Bolton, that they will make a lot of noise and hopefully we will respond to that with a good performance for them,” he added.
