Norwich City manager Daniel Farke believes his side are starting to get into their rhythm as he looked ahead to the visit of the Lilywhites to Carrow Road on Wednesday night.
The German boss says he side were disappointed with their last minute loss to Sheffield United at the weekend, but he is not concerned by the team's start to the new season.
"We were frustrated with the result," he told the gathered media at his pre-match press conference, as reported on City's official website canaries.co.uk. "Just one point from three games is not what we wanted. It's fine margins.
"You have to handle the reality, but we know it's fine margins. In this situation, we need to show our chests and stick together.
"We know we have conceded too many goals but lots of our defence missed pre-season. We got the feeling we are coming more and more into our rhythm.
"I didn't have the feeling after our first three games that there has been a big tactical problem. But we have to concede less goals to win more points. I'm not too concerned.
"We just have to focus a bit more on these details and fine margins. If we combine this with our offensive play, I'm sure we'll win more points."
Farke, who replaced Alex Neil as Canaries boss was very complimentary of his predecessor when looking ahead to the game, continuing: "I'm full of respect for his [Alex Neil's] work. We had two really close games against them last year.
"They have one of the best defences in the whole league. It's important that we are clinical."
The media have been at pains this week to report on the change of colour to the away dressing room walls at Carrow Road, but the City chief was keen to stress it was not something he had too much involvement in.
"We were struggling last season with the home games so everyone was thinking about how we could improve it.
"We've looked at warm-ups, songs pre-match... I'm responsible for many things, but I'm not interested in the colour of the dressing room.
"I'm not a big believer in this. For me, it's not a topic at all," he added.
