Yeovil v Preston Match Report Predictor

Westley claims moral victory in 4-0 Mauling at the hands of The mighty Somerset outfit, Yeovil Town. Despite being 4 goals down at half time Westley refused to accept that his team didn't win the scoreless 2nd half. "The players thought they were playing Celtic, Westley added, it's not fair, their kit gave them an advantage, We'd have won if their players hadn't been allowed to wear boots. Still, it keeps the unbeaten run going".
 
Preston completed a rare trebble over form team Yeovil in front of a delighted bunch of supporters, whose decision to make the long trip to snowy Somerset was rightly rewarded by Beardsley's late strike. From the word go Preston went on to the front foot with Monakana causing no end of problems on both sides of the pitch. Westley had called for workrate and belief after the disappointing result in Essex on Saturday and both properties were in evidence in debutant Rudd's first half. Twice the loanee keeper denied Madden from close range, the second time with a save that would not have been out of place for England.

That PNE have waited so long to record their second three points of 2013 is something of a surprise given the verve with which they played a second half against a Yeovil visibly stunned by what was unfolding. Although there were late chances for the hosts it was Beardsleys effort which sent the three points back to Lancashire.

It will do little to silence Westleys many critics, but those who witnessed it will have seen something to suggest relegation can be avoided.

If we win 1-0 and Beardsley bags it then I'll defer to the lashers. That's how confident I am that this will not happen!
 
I never say never.

At least the home stands at Gloomfield are better constructed than the Gene Kelly.

I'm not denying we could get a result, we have beaten them twice this year, but Beardsley to score as well!

I get the feeling it will be a night of "it could have gone either way but we fell just short of the line".

We will definitely get beaten - but I do not want to share the prize for this competition so have gone for a unique entry :)
 
With caretaker manager Deepdale Duck watching over his new side.Preston recorded a suprise 0-0 winning draw.

Preston owner trevor Hemmings had heard that ex-manager Graham Westley only made one enforced change and Hemmings felt this was not enough to help him in his plan to ruin the once proud deepdale club.

Focusing on the match Deepdale Duck said his midfield worked hard and ruffled a few feathers, while the defenders fitted the bill. Duck kept the side in incubation for 60 mins after the game as the players did not understand what he meant when he said "You can all have rest day tomorrow".

One final work from Graham Westley "Preston who? they're not exactly Stevenage". this interview was cut short as a large duck with a large cap on flew over to deposit over Westley with the words "Thats from the PNE Faithful".

The first half was one of guts and relish and hunger. Courage, fortitude, bodies on the line. I wanted our players to stand up and be counted, cross the white line, step up to the plate and approach the line of scrimmage. And I think we did that.

It's a very thin line between blazing the ball over the bar and tapping it in, and it's not a line we have crossed courageously enough or consistently enough in recent weeks. 78% of our efforts have ended up in the crowd, 12% have rolled into the keeper's cap, 5% have been patted round the post and 3.5% have worried the woodwork.

We're talking hairline margins, wafer-thin fractions, but that's what we have to overcome if we want to win f'ball'm'ches. And believe me, I want to win f'ball'm'ches.

But sometimes, despite your best efforts and your guts, determination and fiddling about with a spreadsheet on the train, you're left waiting for the officials to see what you see, and give what you think they should give. But all too often, they seem to see and give something else entirely.

For the second half we were forced to regroup, obviously. Me and the lads talked about one or two things during the break, including a book I've been reading, but also what we might do in the second half.

Belief, strength, conviction. Valour. Those are 3, maybe 4 words I like to use around about this time in the match report.

Some days you can smell it in the air, that overwhelming taste of victory, and you can really sense that you're about to turn the corner, jump the lights, cross the viaduct, climb the staircase, burn the bridges, empty the dustbins. It's so tangible you can touch it.

And then other days, it's not.

Excellent . Couldn't have been better written by professor Stanley Unwin.
 
WESTLEY LOCKED IN TOILETS AS PNE GET HARD FOUGHT WINNING DRAW

As PNE fought hard to gain a point at in-form team Yeovil Graham Westley missed the game due to getting locked in the toilets in the changing room. The players didnt seem fazed by the loss of their leader and played their on tactics to good effect.

It is believed that once the game finished Graham Westley shouted through the door how did we get on, the players responded we got a winning draw, after a few seconds Westley screamed what the hell is a winning draw!!
 
Hostage Stand-Off Continues

Preston Manager Graham Westley is continuing to hold the club's players hostage at Huish Park, five days after Preston's embarrassing 8-0 defeat at Yeovil.

Westley locked the squad in the dressing room after the final whistle and is refusing to let them out until they have proved that they can "literally sweat blood".

Local reporters have spent the last 120 hours waiting outside the dressing rooms for his press conference.

At one point a wide-eyed Westley did open the door slightly and demanded to speak to Radio Lancashire's Gary Hickson, but he slammed the door in his face when Hickson admitted he couldn't work out the square root of 39,242.

The only contact Westley has had with the outside world since then is a text message sent to Preston's Freelance Director of Footballing Advice But Not Chairman, Peter Ridsdale.

Ridsdale said the message contained nothing but a photo of Westley's own testicles.

Did make me laugh ;)
 
After fielding a team with square pegs in round holes Preston went down 3-0 to Yeovil , westley said the players let themselves down by trying to play football instead of sticking with the plan of running at the opposition and trying to knock them over . Ridsdale was unavailable for comment but was heard saying that was some losing draw he had just witnessed and the people of Preston must be very proud . The preston fans reacted by chanting for him to leave while oddly 1 or 2 made efforts to check his prostate with what appeared to be there tongues as he passed by . In the interview after the game Westley said he still hadnt given up hope of the play offs and also suggested some fans not only wanted him to stay but had knitted him a spring and summer ensemble to wear at BBQ,s up and down the north west i summer . Surf was banned from future radio commentary for shouting clucking bell or something and John Roper has accepted the new role as Clairvoyant with the LEP .
 
10 man Preston succumb to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of in form Yeovil.

Things didn't get off to a good start for Preston. After the 9th minute, already injured Joel Byrom was brought down by what seemed to be a bottle of Powerade thrown from the sideline. Their is still speculation as to who threw the bottle, but it is understood Maamria was seen to have unfolded his arms during the disaster. With this, Preston had to play out the remaining 80 minutes with 10 men, as Westley had already used all 3 subs in a tactical switch.

Yeovil took the lead in the 34th minute when striker James Hayter headed in a close range effort beating reserve Goalkeeper Joe Garner, who said he didn't fancy playing outfield. Preston were asked before the game to defend from the front, and you could see the passion in striker Paul Huntingdon who chased everything down, but their one effort that half fell to him, and he blazed it over from close range.

The second half was a fiery affair with Preston picking up an incredible 3 yellow cards after committing just 13 fouls. It's understood boss Graham Westley isn't pleased, but refused to comment as he still has to work the percentages out of all League 1 fouls and bookings.

The game was effectively ended in the 83rd minute when man of the match Hayter added his second goal with a 30 yard rocket. Preston looked dissapointed and realised their 31% possession was wasted.

Westley commented " I knew the gods weren't with us early on in this one, I actually brought the Colchester tactics with me so had to change it around quickly, this my reasoning behind the 3 subs". When asked about Joel Byrom playing injured he added "He's a player who takes up 32% of the center circle, a player with that sort of percentage should really dominate the middle of the park, and turn stats and fortunes in our favour". "The incident is unlucky and I have no doubt we'd have won the game had I brought my other bag".
