What they said: 'We dug in but it was an ugly game. We didn't do nearly enough when we had the ball and we weren't composed enough. That's not me being critical because we showed great character.

'That happens in games and it seemed liked a long 25 or 30 minutes after they got the goal back but we got tackles in, made blocks and got our head on things.

'We got the rub of the green that maybe we haven't had in other games."

Preston boss Darren Ferguson gives his assessment of his side`s crucial win.

What we saw: A positive and committed Sky Blues display saw them well backed to the end by the home fans.

What's next: A Yorkshire double for the Sky Blues with Doncaster Rovers visiting the Ricoh Arena on Tuesday night and a trip to the KC Stadium to face Hull City next Saturday.

What's happening elsewhere: Most bizarre City-themed story of the week concerned former loanee goalkeeper Stephen Bywater, whose 'garden art`collection has attracted numerous complaints from his neighbours.

Amongst other items, Bywater has a decorated portable toilet and horse box on display although he is now auctioning them off for charity.

He said: 'Although I consider this a private issue, I would like to apologise to any supporters and local residents in Derbyshire who have been offended."

What were the chances: The win for Preston was their first away from home in the league this season and the Sky Blues first reverse at the Ricoh Arena.
