'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fighting On

Graham Westley isn't willing to throw in the towel, and insists that he'll "fight on" as Preston manager.

The Lilywhites were booed off following their latest Deepdale defeat at the weekend, however Westley felt that his side deserved more but concedes you have to accept criticism if things aren't going right: 'There were some strong passages of play and on a different day it could have been a very different result.

'I don't think you can expect to be the manager of a club in this league and not win games and have people happy. It's realistic to expect people to want your blood when things aren't as everyone would want them to be.

'When it doesn't go right you have to be strong and you have to focus on the job you need to do. Nobody wants to walk away from a football ground with yet another defeat.'

Should his side play as they did against Shrewsbury more often than not Westley feels that results will follow so he is still "encouraged", adding: 'I think it's difficult for any player to go on a field of play when there's a sense of disappointment around, but when you come to a club like Preston North End it's all part of the process.

'I think that as we go forward that group of players will not put in performances like that and go away with nothing on a regular basis. There's a lot to be encouraged about.'
