Phil Brown insists that Preston’s Carling Cup win over Charlton will help the side gain confidence as they mount a long-term push for promotion to the Npower Championship.

Preston currently sit at eighth in the table in Npower League One, with just goal difference separating the side from the play-off zone.

And after collecting 13 points from their first six matches of the season, Brown believes that the Cup win over Charlton will only increase their confidence further.

"It was very pleasing because I came to see Chris' team in the last round against Reading and at the weekend - despite the changes, the philosophy of playing is the same,” Brown said of Charlton.

"My hat is off to Charlton as they've gone top of the league without playing and I'd gladly swap this cup win for a league win.


"To be able to dictate and control the game as long as we did, I was delighted, and to keep a clean sheet was a testament to a lot of hard work from the defenders.

"It's a good test when you come to The Valley and they're a team flying high in our division but the lads proved tonight that they can do it."

Preston move on to play Brentford away at the weekend, before taking on Southampton in the next round of the Carling Cup.
