03/04: Preview: Preston North End
by Matt Rowson and Ian Grant
How did they do?
Absolutely no idea. The league table says that they finished twelfth. I have no recollection of this. Ran Bradford close as the worst side to visit Vicarage Road and still had the audacity to beat us, albeit a Cup-minded reserve side. Alexander's penalty remains the only goal to beat Richard Lee in his four starts to date.
How will they do?
Craig Brown's season of ship-steadying was fine as a first off, but will need to be improved upon this time around. Riccardo Fuller seems to be quite highly rated on the basis relatively few outings, he and Cresswell should score enough to keep Preston out of trouble, but not much more.
Preston as a shade of Crown Paint
Let's face it, they could do with a lick of paint. Didn't Preston used to be fun?
