Preston North End will be needing to do a lot of reflecting at the end of the campaign with the Lilywhites having not been able to kick on during a difficult season.
Alex Neil’s side headed into the campaign aiming to challenge for a place in the Championship’s top-six, with them having fallen out of the play-off positions during the end-of-season run-in last season. However, Preston have found consistent results and performances hard to come by and there have been a number of infuriating results along the way.
There will be a lot of scrutiny placed on Neil in the next few weeks and months and Preston will need to show they can have a strong ending to the campaign for him to be confident of keeping his job.
