Darren Ferguson has set his sights on guiding Preston to the Barclays Premier League following his appointment at Deepdale.
Ferguson, 37, has been installed as Alan Irvine's successor on a three-and-a-half year contract.
The Lancashire outfit have not been in the top flight since 1961 but Ferguson is determined to end that unwanted cycle. He will be forced to work on a limited budget but sees no reason why Preston cannot push hard for promotion this season after last season's play-off semi-final defeat.
He added: "Hopefully we can go one better and get to the promised land (of the Premier League).
"We are eight points off the play-offs with a game in hand and that bodes well. The aim definitely is to get there and, along with winning games, my philosophy is to entertain and that's never going to change."
