Preston turn on style

Preston boss Simon Grayson was impressed with his players after they secured a 2-1 victory against Halifax Town.

Preston's Andy Little scored the opening goal when heading home from close range. Josh Brownhill soon made it 2-0 with his third goal in as many games with a curling shot from just outside the box.

Halifax responded through Ross Dyer just before the break.

Grayson told the club's official website: "I thought first half we probably played some of the best football seen since I have been at the football club."
