Chelsea youngster Todd Kane hopes the lessons he learned at Preston will stand him in good stead for his month long loan with Blackburn Rovers. "It was a good experience (at Preston) of different philosophies of playing football," said the 19 year old. "Physically I feel like I've got stronger, playing with men every day and I've learnt a lot from them.
"It was different from being at Chelsea, obviously I was used to finishing training and doing a bit extra in the gym. At Preston the manager said I do the hours so I can get that little bit extra (fitness) and it might help after Christmas.
"I wasn't disappointed. I knew I was there to get some games and experience and I'm happy that I played five games and got five starts. I would have liked to play more but I thank Graham Westley for giving me the opportunity.
