Phil Brown believes pressure is mounting on free-falling Preston

Preston North End manager Phil Brown believes that the pressure is beginning to mount on his out-of-sorts side.

The Lilywhites are now without a win in seven league games and face a welcome distraction in the form of a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy clash with Rochdale tomorrow night where Brown is hoping to the shuffle the pack.

A thumping 5-2 defeat at league leaders Charlton on Saturday continues to force focus upon Brown’s beleaguered backline and he told Sky Sports News that the pressure on the side will only get worse if they fail to turn their form around: “When your team is losing and you are looking over your shoulder and now you are wondering who is coming to the party that’s the hard part of football and we have got enough characters in the changing room to address it on a Saturday.

“Unfortunately the pressure mounts and the longer it goes the worse it becomes and you start wondering when the next win is coming and how you get yourself out of it. That quite simply is my job and my responsibility.

“I have tried a lot of things in my short time in management and hopefully try something different tomorrow night that will stand us in good stead on Saturday and the following Saturday.”
