Alan Browne was named Man of the Match in Preston’s 1-1 draw with Notts County and was encouraged by the spirit and fight from his team.
Jake Cassidy fired the visitors into the lead on 51 minutes before Joe Garner’s late equaliser sealed a point in the opening game of the 2014/15 season.
The 19-year-old said: "We dominated the first half. But when they got the goal it gave them a bit of life and got them back into the game.
"The last twenty minutes was really tough but we kept going and it’s a good point to take from the first game but I think we deserved more.
"Team spirit here is massive and I think we showed that by not giving up until the end and it paid off for us."
