‘Phenomenal’, ‘Quality’ – Many Preston North End fans heap praise on 24-year-old



Many Preston North End supporters have been suggesting that defender Ben Davies is too good to be playing in the Championship, following his performance in the Lilywhites’ 2-0 win at Stoke City on Wednesday night.

Davies has formed a real commanding partnership with Patrick Bauer at the heart of Preston’s defence so far this campaign, and the pair were again selected to start together for Preston by Neil, as they went into the game looking for another win to cement their place inside the Championship’s top six.

The defender was instrumental in helping Preston keep themselves on level terms during a first half in which they struggled to play with their usual fluency in possession, with Davies producing two excellent blocks to prevent both Tyrese Campbell and Sam Clucas giving the hosts the lead.

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

The 24-year-old continued to be a calming and assured presence at the heart of Preston’s defence throughout the rest of the game, with the defender managing to make plenty of clearances and winning some vital aerial duels at times to prevent Stoke from being able to create many clear cut chances.

It was a performance which was indicative of the sort of form that Davies has been able to show for the Lilywhites throughout the campaign, and the defender has emerged amongst some of the best centre-backs playing outside of the Premier League over the course of the season.

Here then, we take a look at what Preston fans have been saying about Davies’ performance on social media…
