Preston North End at home - match day thread

Recommended Posts

Strange half. Preston started and ended well, looking most dangerous throughout.

We had a decent spell in the middle of the half but couldn’t turn the pressure to chances. Getting the ball into some decent positions but lacking the quality to create.

Preston breaking and finding width well, some great runs into the channels and Johnson has way too much time and space to pick his dangerous passes.

Need more pace and we can cause them some trouble.

Brief first half reflections.

PNE have had the more clear-cut scoring chances and have looked mobile and comfortable with the ball, having lots of space. Hit the bar on 38 minutes. Daniel Johnson pulling the strings with simple, telling passes.

We have looked a bit disjointed and hesitant, resorting to too many hopeful long balls, the young- uns CP, HNM and RA look up-for-it.

Feel we are somewhat fortunate to go in at 0-0.

Really frustrating. We’ve put in some really good performances against the likes of Boro, Swansea and Cardiff - but today I have to say we look really poor. Not able to string more than 5 passes together, full backs woefully out of position and offer nothing in attack, ball not sticking up top… Nigel has his work cut out this half.

Preston do pass the ball around well, but also are very niggly and physical. Ref has given us very little, but we have also been bullied off the ball far, far too easily this half.

Sort it out Nige!
