An away game at Luton is always a tough test for Preston and this one proved no different. Changes were made to the midweek side that defeated Huddersfield in the Cup.
Parrott started as a lone striker with Browne, Ledson, Mccann and Whiteman palying in midfield. Brady played on the left in place of the injured Fernandez.
The game was fairly tight with Luton just edging the better of the possession but it was Preston who managed to get the breakthrough in the first half to the delight of the strong travelling support.
Brady put in a deep curling cross from the left. Potts came in off the opposite flank and almost karate kicked the ball in the net as it came at him at a height. It was a superb finish.
Preston came under some pressure in the second half and the hosts had a couple of decent chances to equalise. One was a through ball where the striker couldn't control his shot and ended up chipping both Woodman and the keeper.
The home side also had another effort which went wide. All in all Luton will be disappointed that they didn't score but Preston maintained their third clean sheet on the bounce in the league.
It wasn't a thrilling performance but nevertheless Preston will always take a win at Luton which is notoriously a difficult place to take all three points. North End must now use the early season momentum to keep apace with the top sides in the division.
