How do you look at Preston’s goalless draw at Portsmouth?
It was a mixed bag I suppose. If you take into account they were facing a club who won the FA Cup four years ago, it wasn’t a bad point.

On the other side of the coin, Pompey haven’t won for quite a while and it is sides like that which North End need to be beating.
Probably the best way to look at it is to be pleased with the clean sheet, put the point in the bag, and move on.
