New Preston North End chairman Maurice Lindsay says he's ready to take the job thanks to the experience he earned with Wigan Athletic.

Lindsay was named new PNE chairman last week.

He told the club's website: "I'm coming with a new approach, some experience because I was at Wigan for a number of years; I have been at Dave Whelan's side for a few years, I have been around the block a few times.

"I am really excited about the challenge and lets make no bones about it, it is difficult times but let's hope to get through the difficult times and lead on to better days."
