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
“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.”
