    We huffed & puffed and the wind blew the ball around. Lacking some quality this afternoon despite the efforts of all.

    Lots of effort and desire from both but no quality .

    Defences very much on top.

    We were made to look pretty lightweight and they marked Dennis out of the game well

    Attendance 19,374 - there must have been around 3,000 from Preston.

    About 2000 short of full. Given the season has been effectively over for a bit, I'll take that.
    Very weak officiating.

    And then some. Perfunctory and officious officiating didn't help.

    I was just glad they didn't nick a goal!

    Got the impression their fans weren't very impressed with the negative play from them.

    Yes. Because of the rail strike... ihad to get a 7.37 train from Leeds this morning and am now wending my way hi e via Sheffield and another train company for another £70..
    Just very thankful Preston shooting was so poor.
    I realise this was my first home game since covid...

    It was poor after the previous couple of games. Maybe our expectations were raised to a level that wasn't achievable. Tom hasn't lost yet, and has turned things around to a degree, but Preston showed what a Championship scrap is all about, and we couldn't break them down.

    The players are hoping that Tom gets the job full time.

    It's all part of a cunning plan for PNE. Just miss out on playoffs ,so as to avoid any chance of a season of misery next time. Can then reflect on a decent season, with hope for the next one.
    It didn't look like PNE actually wanted the win - particularly near the end with no urgency. Missing some key players can't have helped.

    That's a tradition we should pinch - we usually give up 15 minutes after the start.
