Shrews midfielder Paul Parry found the top corner after four minutes to score the games' only goal as Preston failed to mount a comeback.

The visitors enjoyed plenty of possession but did little with it against a well-drilled home defence, with Nicky Wroe's powerful 70th-minute free-kick as close as the Deepdale men came to a leveller.

Westley said: "Having gone behind, we dominated play in the first half and created some good moments but didn't take our chances.

"In the second half it was a bit backs-to-the-wall from their point of view. We kept the play going forward but didn't do enough to score the goal that would have got us back in it.

Westley added: "This is a tough place to come. They know how to play their ground, know how to play the officials and they're a tough nut to crack here."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
