The Lilywhites went into the international break full of confidence, with a 3-1 win over Swansea City seeing the side rack up three wins on the trot in all competitions, as Sepp van de Berg, Emil Riis and Ben Whiteman all got on the score-sheet at Deepdale.Meanwhile, Preston new boy Josh Murphy has discussed his ambitions for the season after joining the club on loan from Cardiff City, and said: “I’ve got a lot to prove. I haven’t played a lot of football in the last two years or so.

“This is a chance for me to enjoy playing football again, play week in, week out, score goals and be near the first team. It is a completely different style to what I’ve been used at Cardiff and hopefully it will suit me down to the ground.

“If you enjoy your football, everything takes care of itself and performances follow.”

He continued: “I know I have to work hard to get into the team. It is something I want to do and I’m willing to work super hard for it. I’m excited about playing at Deepdale and building up that bond with the fans as quickly as I can.

“We’ve got a couple of away games to start with after the break, then we play at home.”
