Preston's Championship season continued with a win at Deepdale against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

An early strike from Doyle proved enough to separate the sides as Preston saw out a one-nil win over fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest, with this win adding to the pressure on Grayson's opposite number Freedman.

Cardiff loanee Doyle (2) was on target for Preston for the first time since his arrival with the striker on hand to follow up after de Vries had kept out Johnson's initial effort.

Garner, against his former side, could have made it two but he headed over when well placed.

That miss could have cost Preston with Mendes and Oliveira both going close to bringing Forest level but they couldn't take the chances with Ward going closest of all for the goal shy visitors, who have struggled like PNE when it comes to goals, but his effort grazed the crossbar.

This win, which perhaps only a second in a dozen or so Championship fixtures, did extend the unbeaten Preston run to five-matches and moved them up to 16th and six-points clear of the bottom three.
