Preston North End keen to bring in some fresh faces

Preston North End boss Alex Neil has said some signings would help his side this January, as per a report by the Lancashire Post.

The Lilywhites have made a solid start to the Championship season but have hit a slump of late.

They have lost back-to-back home games against Reading and Middlesbrough and are in the hunt for some new signings to inject some energy and enthusiasm into their ranks.

Alex Neil has given away nothing in terms of who or what positions they are targeting: “That’s going to stay in-house, I’m not going to mention where we’re going to try and strengthen if we are going to strengthen at all.”

“Every single manager in the country will say to you they want to strengthen their squad before the window ends, naturally. You don’t want to leave yourself weaker than when you go into the window. Albeit we’ve had two poor results, we’re still in a good position in the league. We need to start winning a few more games, naturally, because our form isn’t as good as we’d like.”

Neil admitted that signings would be beneficial to his side: “A few fresh faces would certainly help us and would give the lads a boost as well. That’s certainly needed if we can do that.”

Preston are in FA Cup action this weekend and take on Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.
