Individual errors cost us - Holden

Dean Holden says individual errors cost City as they slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Preston North End's Deepdale.

Substitute Sean Maguire bagged the winner for the hosts, just moments after Famara Diédhiou's 11th goal of the season had cancelled out Alan Browne's brilliant lob.

To make matters worse, Aden Flint was red-carded late on for an altercation with ex-City left-back.

The centre-back picks up an automatic three-match ban and will be joined on the sidelines by Joe Bryan, who starts a two-game suspension for collecting his tenth caution of the season.

Holden felt City deserved more from the game for their second-half efforts, but were ultimately made to pay for their own errors.

Speaking on BCTV, the coach said: "We win together and we lose together but individual errors have cost us tonight and we can't get away from that.

"We're disappointed with the two goals we conceded tonight and that makes it difficult to win any game away from home.

"Ultimately we were a little slow to get started and Preston got on top of us.

"Obviously if Maggy (Hordur Magnusson) gets a good clearance on it then nothing comes from it. It's fallen to Browne and it's a moment of magic from him.

"We got back in the game thanks to a great header from Famara and looked like we were in the ascendancy then.

"Then we gave the second goal away. It's a poor defensive goal to concede and it's cost us.

"A draw would probably have been fair because for the final 25 minutes we had them penned back in. Bobby Reid's chance happened so fast and it's a great save from the keeper.

"It's getting to that time of the season where every point and every minute of every game matters. We've been undone tonight but we pick ourselves up and get ready for Saturday (at Burton)."
