Grayson Delighted With Win Over Walsall
Manager Simon Grayson was delighted that the game went the way it did and North End kept up with the leaders at the top of the league.
Daniel Johnson got the only goa of the game in the first half to add to the one he got at the weekend in the win against Scunthorpe United.
The score could have been far bigger had Walsall not had such an inspired keeper as Richard O'Donnell who made some fine saves.
Grayson told www.pnefc.net/ "We got the goal and after that we wanted to get another - but we started to give the ball away too cheaply at times and when you give the ball away against good teams who can handle it then you`re going to put yourself under pressure.
"But saying that I think they only had two shots on target so for all the possession they had towards the end, they didn`t trouble us too much and we defended resilient."
