Simon Grayson: ‘They Will Know They Have Been In A Game’

22 August 2015

Preston North End manager Simon Grayson was keen to focus on the positives following Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat against Ipswich Town.

That result ended North End’s unbeaten start to the season, but the Lilywhites outplayed the current Championship leaders for most of the match – a positive sign for the weeks and months ahead.

“We knew before the game that we were coming up against a really strong Ipswich team; top of the division and in the Play-Offs last year,” Grayson told PNE PlayerHD.

“They have got lots of quality about them and we had to make sure that if they were going to get a positive result they had to earn the right to get one – and that has been the case today.

“They will have come off the pitch knowing that they have certainly been in a game, and one bit of quality has won them it in the end.

“After 25 minutes we could have been out of sight in the game and we then got a goal against us totally against the run of play, but that is what the Championship is about.”
