Last season, Simon Grayson saw his Preston North End team promoted via the play-offs from Sky Bet League One into the Championship.
The main objective for the season was really just to stay up and avoid relegation back to where they came from.
However, the season has panned out very differently for them this season as play-offs have been a genuine possibility for the majority of the campaign.
They currently occupy a position in the top half of the table and have been many people’s surprise package this season, especially when you compare them to the disappointing seasons of the other newly-promoted sides.
There are a few people that have seriously stood out for North End this season who the fans will be desperate to see back again but if they were to give a realistic ‘Dream XI’ there would be many replacements.
If Preston are realistically wanting to push on for promotion next season then it seems that good summer signings will be essential.
