0-0 draw against Preston North End, their boss

Mark Warburton

says that the disappointment that they are feeling shows how much they have progressed.

“That was a hard-earned point for us,”

he said

. “We came here for a midweek game against a Preston side who will have been smarting.

“They had a bad defeat at the weekend, so we knew it would be tough here.

“There was a real challenge to be met here, and I thought we did that.

“The second-half performance was much better than the first, and I was delighted with the way our wing-backs got forward.

“I think it says a lot that the lads are really disappointed back there at only coming out of this game with a point.

“This is a tough place to come, and it was an energy-sapping pitch out there.

“The lads showed terrific character throughout and stood up to the challenge.

“It’s another clean sheet for us, and that belief is still growing in the camp.”

Here is what Preston boss Alex Neil said about the game:

“It was a big improvement from Cardiff,

“That was a really difficult performance to describe, we missed two penalties and it just wasn’t to be for us.

“I thought we definitely lifted the level of performance, so I’m pleased with that.

“We were more aggressive, offensive, and at the end of it we just lacked that bit of quality you need.

“We enjoyed the bulk of the possession, but we just didn’t manage to take our opportunities when they came our way.

“We should have landed the first blow, but we didn’t. We got into some great areas, and we looked a real threat at times.

“Over the piece, I think if any team had deserved to go on and win the game, it was us.

“I’d asked the players for a more positive approach, and I got that.

“Goals are the hardest thing to add to any team, and that’s been the big difference between picking up all three points or not.”
