Preston boss Alan Irvine insisted he was pleased with a point at Charlton despite North End staying two points outside the top six.

The Lancashire side have the best home record in the league but their poor away form looks set to cost them a play-off spot and they could only draw 0-0 with bottom club Charlton at The Valley.

Irvine said: "You have to look at the circumstances. We have been down to the bare bones before but we've stripped them even more."

He added: "We've had to dig deep and we could have felt sorry for ourselves but they dug in and should be commended for that.

"We try and prepare the same way for away games as we do at home but the margins are very fine in this division.

"The break will give us a chance to get a few bodies back and there are six really hard games to go."
