Preston North End have won the LG sponsored LMA Performance Of The Week Award following Tuesday’s superb win At Bramall Lane.
Preston manager Simon Grayson will receive a specially commissioned trophy made by world renowned silversmiths and LMA Partner, Thomas Lyte of London, in a presentation to commemorate the award.
This is the Lilywhites’ second award of the season having previously earned it for a fine win against Bristol City in Sky Bet League One on 22nd November last year.
Two goals from Paul Gallagher and one from Paul Huntington sealed a terrific come back from a goal down at half-time, a result which delighted the North End boss.
“We had a disappointing January, not getting the results we expected,” said Grayson.
“This win was just what we needed to provide a platform for a strong finish in the league.
“The incentive to win and play in the fifth round against Manchester United was absolutely massive and we took up the challenge well.
“We now expect a great day at Deepdale which is one the fans and supporters are really looking forward to.”
Congratulations to Simon and all the players on their award.
