Ian Holloway identifies what Preston North End need to gain promotion

Published

on

Ian Holloway has stated that if Preston could add ‘a couple’ of faces then they’d have what it takes to get promoted.

The Lilywhites have enjoyed a fantastic first-half of the season and find themselves third in the Championship, ten points off the automatic promotion places.

Preston have been brilliant all season, and if they could get out some of the inconsistent away performances then they would be much closer to Leeds in 2nd.

Alex Neil’s side are hoping to achieve a quite unbelievable achievement of getting to the Premier League, but Holloway has expressed that they must strengthen first in order to reach their ambition.

Speaking on EFL on Quest, Holloway said: “They’re at you all the time, they play at high intensity and they don’t spend anything like the amount of other teams.

“Two seasons ago it was seventh and last season they had a bad start and a bad end and fell to 14th. I think if they could just add a couple (they’d go up).”

Callum Robinson top-scored for Preston last season, but where did the side finish in the league?

The Verdict

Holloway’s right, Preston are excellent and terrific in all areas of the pitch, but if they could improve it would have to be through a couple of new signings who can push them over the line in some of the bigger games in the Championship.

The Lilywhites will hope to achieve what would be a quite superb landmark in getting to the Premier League, and the way the club is run, it seems unlikely that the side will spend throughout January.

Deepdale has been a fortress this season, but they have to keep going and if they can do that then who knows, this year could be one of the most memorable in the club’s history.
