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

Backing For Preston Boss

Graham Westley has received, pretty much, that dreaded vote of confidence.

Westley had insisted that he wasn't going to walk away from the Preston job and Peter Ridsdale, as he told BBC Radio Lancashire, backed him to handle the pressure he is under: 'His job is to fix it (and) I expect him to fix it.

'If you're not winning football matches, everybody's under pressure. Is there pressure to start winning? Of course there is.

'Football is all about winning and we're not at the moment.

'Is everybody at the club under pressure? Yes they are. Does that include the manager? Of course it does.'

Westley knows what he has to do with Ridsdale knowing he does, adding: 'He knows, like we all know, that our supporters want to see us win. The pressure's there, but to some extent it's coming from ourselves.

'The last thing I want to do is spend my Saturday afternoons watching losing football. It's not what I'm used to and it's not what I want to do. My knowledge is that the manager feels exactly the same way.'

Preston really need to win at the weekend, defeat may well not cost Westley his job but he probably doesn't have many more games left to save this!
