At half time in the Brentford game it seemed that Preston were heading into the international break in poor form. Toney had scored both goals to give Brentford a comfortable lead and it appeared Preston would be left with one point from the first month of the season.
North End turned around the game and also their recent history away at Brentford. Maybe it was the new Brentford stadium but an inspired spell in the second half saw Preston score four goals without return.
Sinclair is proving to be a key player. He seems to be the most clinical in front of goal and has the pace to worry defenders. He bagged a brace in quick succession to level the scores before Potts gave Preston the lead. Maguire scored from close range to finish the job.
Four points is rather healthier than one. Added to this Preston lost to Stoke after being reduced to ten men for the majority of the game so can say that on another day they may have had another result.
North End did have a tough start. They now need to push on. It is still a very competitive division and Alex Neil will be hoping that Preston can get on a run to lift themselves up the table into a comfortable position.
