This exactly-'We might have dominated but Preston had the quality to bother us constantly'. How many times have we done this in the past only to be outdone by better teams? I would that we have that meanness in defence and a killer instinct. I never felt we were going to lose last night and going in level at half time the game was ours for the taking.ryone and rorystowel like this
This is a post on the Stoke forum. He’s unsure that any Stoke player would get into PNE side.

Dominated the game, outplayed and outsmarted where it really mattered. tbh that's what top and bottom of this league look like. So how to rate Mick on tonight? He did a lot of things right and to me at least it didn't feel like another Derby. I'm not usually big on blaming players when problems could have been sorted with better training ground routines - but it didn't feel like that today either. We might have dominated but Preston had the quality to bother us constantly and that didn't help us make good decisions on the pitch when it mattered.
Wonder how many if any of our starting X1 would have got into that Preston side? I'm not sure anyone would and that speaks volumes.
So I'm saying either, too many players' limitations got shown up tonight - or, we've still got a few months' hard work before we've got the confidence as a squad to win games like this one.
A surprisingly generous 7* for MoN from me
add * if you were there please
