Irvine makes point

Published Add your comment

Preston manager Alan Irvine admitted his side had come for a point after the goalless draw with Reading.

Steve Coppell's men started the game five points behind leaders Wolves and despite dominating were unable to find a way past North End goalkeeper Andy Lonergan who produced two superb saves in the first half.

Irvine said: "We knew we would have to defend well as Reading have the best home record in the country let alone the division. The lads deserve a lot of credit.

He added: "It's a fantastic point for us, there's no question about that. I felt we could get something here but only if we were at our best. The lads did their jobs."
