Brad Potts scored a spectacular winner to help Preston produce one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. The hosts had the best chance in the first half when Luke Freeman dragged his shot from the edge of the box. They were made to pay when Brad Potts scored in the 18th minute for the only goal of the game.
Luton’s Nathan Jones: “It’s frustrating for a number of reasons. One, we concede a poor goal, they can say it’s a good goal, two we’ve had enough opportunities to get something from the game. We’ve had enough chances, good chances, opportunities, balls in and around their box, set-plays, enough of the game to have got something from it, and then just the flow of the game was really frustrating for us. I said to the players before, get the first goal as it’s very difficult to chase a game in this weather and in this current climate, and I don’t mean just the weather, I mean the way football is played in terms of how much time it takes to do anything.”
Preston’s Ryan Lowe: “I just remember seeing him in the air with his two feet and thinking ‘what’s he doing and it hits the back of the net. Potts has got fantastic goalscoring attributes, I think he’s had that all his career, but in a different role. I’m pleased with one wing-back crossing to the opposite wing-back and finding a goal, that’s how we work, we want them in the box. If he continues to keep scoring goals like that, I expect the wing-backs to get between five and 10 goals anyway, and he’s off the mark with two. I thought the performance was okay, we could have done better in certain situations.”
