Preston North End manager Graham Westley has said that he is extremely happy with the performance of his team in the match against Exeter City recently. Ian Hume scored the two goals in the 2-1 win over Exeter City recently. The win is the first Preston North End have had in the last five matches.
As result, they still remain in touch with the play-off position, although that likelihood has been reducing for the last few matches now. Preston are currently a massive 10 points behind sixth placed Carlisle United, while they will be facing the likes of Bury and Barnsley in the next few matches.
Ian Hume squad after just 11 min on the clock after a cross from Danny Mayor. However, Liam Sercombe equalised for Exeter City just a few minutes later. Just when it seemed that it was going to be yet another disappointment for new Preston North End manager Graham Westley, Ian Hume scored his second goal of the night with a delicate finish. Artur Krysiak failed to collect the long ball from Thorsten Stuckmann, which Ian Hume promptly despatched into the back of the net.
“I am more pleased with the performance than the result. The players showed a tremendous work ethic and a lot of desire and commitment to go about their work in the right way. You can see they wanted the points and they made up their mind they were going to go and get them. We have been on the back foot and that can happen when you are a side that are used to posting negative results,” Westley said after the match. Preston have won just one match in the last five, but will be hoping that this victory helps them in some confidence for the upcoming matches.
