Simpson laments Preston slip

23 Apr 2007 - 11:56:20

Preston North End boss Paul Simpson has admitted a dramatic loss of form has left his side relying on other results to secure a play-off place.

The Lilywhites lost 1-0 to Leicester City at Deepdale on Saturday as they suffered their fifth defeat in six Championship matches.

The disastrous run has seen North End slip from automatic promotion contenders to fourth place and just two points away from dropping out of the play-off places altogether.

West Brom could leapfrog Preston with victory in their game in hand at Burnley on Monday evening and Simpson has admitted the final two games of the season will be nervous ones for everybody concerned with the Lancashire club.

"We're still fourth but we're relying on other results to stay there after Monday night," he said.

"If we'd done our job right over the last couple of months and been as consistent as we were in the early part of the season we wouldn't have to worry about other results.

"But we've made it interesting for other teams because we haven't been consistent enough."
