Preston North End youngsters fall to defeat after going ahead and have Blackpool...

North End have brought in four players so far this summer – Freddie Woodman, Dai Cornell, Ben Woodburn and Robbie Brady – but want at least three more.

They are still after two strikers and a left wing back, and depending on how Matthew Olosunde gets on, potentially a right wing back.

PNE returned home from their Spain training camp yesterday, after six days in Campoamor, but work was ongoing back home whilst they were away.

Lowe said: "James Wallace and Andy from MRKT Insights are on it 24/7, they had a day off because it was Sunday but even then I had a few phone calls.

"We're on with a couple of things. There are some good things hopefully that will come but we've got to be patient.

"Without making any secret, we know what type of player we want and need but ultimately those players are at other clubs and we have to respect the other clubs - whether they're loans or permanents.

"Someone might not want them but they can't get out of contract, there's loads of factors.

"We have to keep going down the list of what we need and when we have something we'll tell you.

"I'm not in a situation where I'm panicking, there's no chance. We know we need two strikers and maybe one or two in different areas but we're not rushing around for them, we have targets and hopefully we'll try and get the targets that we've identified.”

Lowe is happy with the progress his men have made in the off season but admits it will improve as each game passes.

North End travel to Accrington this Saturday, 3pm, for their fourth pre-season friendly.

He said: “They've taken everything like a breath of fresh air, they've come out of their comfort zone - they're up at seven o'clock every morning doing runs.

"Every single player has been fantastic. Where we are is fine, next week after the Accrington game I will be a lot more pleased because we can get more minutes into other lads who have not played as much, that's what we want to do.”
