'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ferguson Upbeat Despite 4-0 Defeat

Preston North End manager Darren Ferguson remains upbeat despite watching his side lose 4-0 against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium today.

Ferguson said prior to the match that he has a much better team compared to the one that lost to the Swans 2-0 last season, but there wasn't much evidence of that on show today as they struggled to cope with our attacking play from start to finish.

'I always felt the early part of the season would be the hardest as we have a lot of new players at the club and it takes time, but it is going to be a long haul.

'We did well until we gave away that soft second goal but we want to be as competitive as possible to fix our place in this division and I have every confidence in my players to achieve that.

'We knew what to expect as Swansea are a good passing side but I felt we were comfortable until towards the end of the first half.

'It has been a disappointing start to the season with two defeats but I am sure that we can pull it round over the next few games.

'Despite the scoreline, our performance against Swansea was much improved on last season's visit.'
