Time at Club:
Preston North End are now managed by former Norwich City boss Alex Neil following the departure of Simon Grayson to Sunderland. Grayson had took charge in February 2013, following the departure of Graham Westley. Grayson led the club up to the Championship in 2015, which was followed by two very respectable 11th place finishes in the second-tier,
Preston are famously the first English champions, having won the inaugural Football League (unbeaten!) way back in 1988/89, an achievement they repeated the following season. Remarkably the club has yet to add a third title, although they've finished runners-up a sizeable six times. Preston also have a brace of FA Cup triumphs to their name.
A single draw against Sheffield Wednesday in an otherwise black and white set of results has seen Preston North End struggle for consistent results. Wins against Chorley, Cork City & Ipswich Town and defeats to Brentford, Wigan Athletic, West Bromwich Albion, Leeds United, Sheffield United & Reading demonstate slightly erratic form.
