Under fire Preston boss receives backing from chairman

Preston chairman Maurice Lindsay has pledged to back under-pressure manager Darren Ferguson in strengthening his struggling team. Ferguson confirmed after Tuesday night's 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Barnsley that he was looking to bring in three new faces ahead of Friday's clash with Hull.

Preston have been linked with temporary moves for Stoke's Danny Pugh and Michael Tonge, while fellow Potters Tom Soares and Ryan Shotton are also believed to be on the radar.

Lindsay told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph said: "We will try and give Darren all the support he needs.

"Every player he has asked us for so far, we have got for him.

"We are working away now to help him further."
