Drought Continues

Last updated : 30 August 2022 By @pnemad

In reality a point away at Cardiff is always something that Preston would take with open arms but in the context of the season a worrying trend is now developing.

Whilst Preston have been rock solid at the back conceding no goals in their first six league games they have only managed to hit the back of the net once through a Potts spectacular strike away at Luton.

In South Wales Preston were probably fortunate with the hosts having hte majority of the play as acknowledged by Lowe until the final ten minutes when North End went forward with a view to snatching a wnner.

Ever since Archer left last season the goals have dried up. Lowe appears to favour one up front which takes us back to the days of Alex Neil when it was clear that Preston lacked sufficient goals from midfield to support a lone striker.

Parrott has coped well getting into goalscoring positions and holding the ball up but without support Preston have been unable to profit. Browne and Johnson have played attacking roles but have yet to score and questions are now being asked over the starting line up.

Preston now travel to Coventry in a bid to try and turn their early season draws into three points to shoot them up the table.
