Grayson looking to next season
Preston boss Simon Grayson believes the club is well positioned
for a more successful campaign next season.
The Lilywhites have lost just one of their six matches since the
former Leeds manager took charge and he says the foundations are in
place for a positive 2013-14.
“I still know there’s work to do to make us a force this time
next year,” he told BBC Radio Lancashire.
“The endeavour and the application is there. We just want to
bring it all together to give us a foundation for a successful
season next year.”
North End were in and amongst the top six for much of the first
half of the season but soon fell away before Grayson replaced
Graham Westley back in February.
Winger Lee Holmes is equally optimistic about their promotion
chances next season under a manager that has won promotion from the
third tier with all three of his previous clubs – Blackpool in
2007, Leeds in 2010 and Huddersfield in 2012.
“We have to think like that,” Holmes said. “In the last month,
we’ve played some good teams who are at the top of their game and
near the top of the league.
“I think we’ve either matched them or been better than them.
That bodes well going forward.
“There’s a lot that we’ve got to learn and be better at, but
it’s a good starting block for us.”
