We would have hoped that would have held us together at times, particularly when they equalised. But we stopped playing at 1-1. That ‘s a brain position so we must continue to work with players to make indisputable we avoid this happen again. “ In the first one-half, there were a lot of positive things in the performance, but the final examination ball was poor. We go ahead just after half-time with a great goal and we could possibly have added a second base with two or three good blocks in the box. then we lose a poor goal, the game got stretched and we looked a moment leggy. And we lose the crippled off a recess which we should have defended better. ” Preston ‘s Ryan Lowe : “ We could have scored early doors, I thought we might have had a penalty besides, sol when they score a worldie strike, you think, ‘Is that department of justice ? Is that going to seal the plot ? ‘. sometimes you ca n’t do anything about a worldie strickle.

The train ground has been shut, but we got four days of influence into them and it paid off. We scored two fantastic, well-worked goals.
