Ryan Lowe Apologies to Fans After Heavy Luton Defeat

Preston North End manager Ryan Lowe apologised to the club’s supporters after his side were beaten 4-0 by Luton Town in their final match before the international break.

Preston were three goals behind going into half-time, with a Luke Berry brace coming either side of Peter Kioso’s strike, and went further behind in the second half through an unfortunate Bambo Diaby own goal.

Lowe confirmed that North End’s travelling supporters would be reimbursed the cost of their match ticket following the defeat.

He said: “First and foremost, I just want to apologise to the fans because that’s not what I was brought in to do. I was brought in to give them some good times back and get my team to play the way they want them to play, which in all fairness, they’ve done for large parts of games and since I’ve been here that’s hopefully a one-off. A bad day at the office.”

“We’ll reimburse the fans their money back because it’s their hard-earned money, they’ve travelled away on a cold Wednesday night and they’d have been better watching a Sunday league game because that was nowhere near good enough for what we want to do.”

“That’s a performance I want to forget very quickly as a Preston North End manager and I will. That’s happened to me before as a manager, it’s probably happened to Preston North End as fans and as a club, but it won’t happen many times again because I won’t allow it to.”
