David Buchanan believes that Preston North End’s JPT victory over Port Vale can be used as an advantage going into the weekend’s league clash.
The postponement of last Saturday’s game with Swindon meant that they meet the Valiants in back-to-back games.
Said Buchanan: “We will have learned something about them and they will have learned something about is.
“I don’t know if they will play any differently but we have got one up on them.
“We will treat them with the same respect on Saturday that we did last week.
“This week in training we will work hard to prepare and then will work hard in the game.
“In this league you need to work your hardest to get three points.
“What I’ve found in this league is if you are not quite on your game then anyone us capable of beating you.
“In some divisions you can maybe get away with being slightly off your game.
“But that doesn’t seem to be the case in this one.
“Unfortunately you cannot win every game but so far this season we have done okay.
“Hopefully we can keep our goof form going.”
