Manager Simon Grayson has revealed that Preston North End are still hopeful of tying star striker Joe Garner – who hit the equaliser on Saturday – to an extended deal.
“We want to sign Joe and he wants to stay as well,” Grayson said.
“It’s just a case of getting his representative sat down so that we can thrash out a deal.
“We are certainly not a million miles away from it happening.”
Garner will lead the PNE attack in tonight’s Capital One Cup first-round tie at Rochdale (7.45pm kick-off).
