The Lilywhites capitulated 4-0 on Saturday and have now gone five games in all competitions without a win.
Irvine is hoping to stop the rot sooner rather than later.
He told the club's official website: "It is good to have another game to go in to and hopefully to go back and do things right.
"If we win then great we can start moving on, but we must move on.
"We are not going to be given a lot of time to dwell on this, there is not a lot of time at the moment to learn our lessons but we will have to learn quickly."
