Youl Mawene remains hopeful Preston can reach the play-offs following their 1-1 draw at Bristol City - provided their away form improves.
The French defender volleyed in a 69th-minute equaliser following Nicky Maynard's opener 10 minutes earlier to keep North End's promotion dream alive.
"It keeps our season alive," said Mawene. "But we will have to win away from home at some point before the end of the season and we have been poor away this season."
