Manager On An 'Outstanding Team Performance'

13 February 2016

Simon Grayson was delighted his team came away with the three points after a terrific away performance.

North End came out 2-1 winners against Wolverhampton Wanderers to lift the Lilywhites into the top half of the Championship table. 

Speaking of his side's dominant performance against Kenny Jackett's side, the manager told PNE PlayerHD: "I think when you look overall we played very well. We dominated the first half with the ball and we were good off it as well. 

"We made them look very ordinary, we didn't allow them anywhere near our goal, we defended when we had to defend but we certainly controlled the game.

"The four that we had in midfield certainly caused them a lot of problems, they had to change their system a little bit and bring different personnel on. 

There were a number of stand out performances on the day, but the manager was pleased with the collective performance of his side. 

"I think it's hard to pick out individuals when collectively as a team we were outstanding. 

"We had to make sure that we were very good off the ball, we had to stop them from playing and I thought we did that from the first whistle. 

"We utilised the ball well,  got it in to Reach in that pocket when we played him, he was running in behind with his pace and his link up play with Joe [Garner] was good.

"But the other lads behind them were very good as well, so overall some very good performances, but as a team, it was very satisfying today."
