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 mixed set of recent results has seen Preston North End collect wins versus Morecambe, Queens Park Rangers & Burton Albion while suffering adverse results at Leeds United, Reading, Derby County, Norwich City & Swansea City. Draws against Bolton Wanderers & Stoke City has seen them show mid-table form at best.
