Preston manager Simon Grayson said:

"I am disappointed as you know when you come to Portman Road and play against a Mick McCarthy side, you have to compete and battle.

"We lost too many individual battles and not enough players played to the standard that I know they are capable of.

"There was not a great deal in the game but we didn't do enough, on or off the ball, to get anything out of it.

"I am hoping to strengthen. I have given a list of names to the owner and I am hoping to tick some people off. It is going to be a crazy three or four days through all the divisions."
