Boss ready for Leicester test

Simon Grayson is relishing the chance to face his old club Leicester when his Preston side welcome them to Deepdale this Saturday.

The Lilywhites finish their pre-season preparations with the visit of Leicester, the third Premier League side Preston have faced in as many weeks.

Grayson admits he can't wait to face his old club where he enjoyed a successful spell in charge.

"I spent six years there, successful times, had a few Wembley appearances and lifted a few trophies there, so it is great that we have them coming up to round off our pre-season preparations," Grayson told the official club website.

"They are the third of three Premiership teams that we have had which is testament again, as I have said many times, to us as a club that three teams wanted to come and play us."
