Player ratings: Preston North End 0-0 Hull City

North End had the better chances in the game and were unlucky not to find the back of the net at times.

For the second week in a row Troy Parrott was the man to find the opening but the back of the net still eludes him.

PNE boss Ryan Lowe during the draw with Hull City.

It is a similar story to the 0-0 draw with Wigan Athletic on the opening day of the season, where Lowe’s side had chances to win the game.

Aside from not finding a way through the deadlock, Lowe was happy with how his side performed in attack.

He said: “We should have won the two games, the clean sheets are good but the football we have played has been fantastic.

"Over 500 passes, over 20 shots, plenty on target and a few off. Limited a Hull team who have spent millions of pounds to one shot on goal.

"Yeah, we should have won the game, we know that. The chances that we have missed I'm confident the lads will put in the back of the net once they get one.

"I'm frustrated but certainly proud of the way the boys are playing in trying to get that goal and that win. As you can probably see, it isn't far away.”

Lowe is not one to linger on the neatives as his side fell just a little short again.

He is left to rue what might have been having been the most threatening side in their last two games but will only be focusing on the good side of his team’s game.

He said: “There are positives, there are no negatives at all - I'm a positive manager and we're positive people.

"On another day you've got four points in the bag rather than two and on even better days you've got six.

"It wasn't to be, we have two points and if you look at it where we haven't lost in two and haven't conceded that's definitely a plus.

"I'm pleased with how they're playing just frustrated in lacking that bit of quality to open the scoring.”
