Preston boss Alex Neil said:

"I thought we played better today than we have in some of our recent wins here, just our quality of ball at times was poor.

"We lacked a bit of incisiveness in the final third. We relied on a centre-back to come and score us a goal.

"For the opportunities we had and the pressure we put on we deserved to win the game."
