Simon Grayson On A “Great Day”

25 April 2015

Preston North End manager Simon Grayson was proud of his players following a terrific 3-0 victory over Swindon Town at Deepdale.

Joe Garner was the hat-trick hero for the Lilywhites, but from back to front North End were immense, pressing well and nullifying the Robins to only two shots on target the entire afternoon.

Speaking to PNE Player after the annual lap of the pitch which follows the final home match, Grayson said: “It was almost the perfect afternoon in terms of the result, what we can affect, getting three goals, a cleansheet, a big crowd, a good atmosphere, it was a fantastic effort by the players.

“We were playing against a good footballing team who have the ball a lot, we had to be patient, we had to be disciplined, you have to make sure you go chasing the ball as a team or you get picked off – we did that a couple of times, but we got the goals at the perfect times.

“The first one gave us a big lift, the second one right on half-time, but most importantly the third one, when we have had two goal leads in the last three games nerves could creep in a little bit, but all-round a great day for us.”
