Paul Lambert has been impressed with the level of work the squad have put in on the training pitch ahead of Saturday's clash at Deepdale.
After being announced as the club's new manager on Monday, Lambert has had a full week with his new squad at Brockhall and has been delighted with what he has seen.
"It has been great, really good," said the Scot. "The lads have responded, which you'd expect when any new manager comes in.
"The way they have trained and the way they have applied themselves has been excellent.
"When a new manager comes in everybody is a little bit tentative over what is going to happen and who is going to play, all that uncertainty, but the first four days we've been here have been really enjoyable.
"It this week has been good for us. It is great being back on the training pitch again and it will be even better on Saturday when you have that adrenaline rush and that feeling of a matchday.
"There are good players at this club, I've said that before, we just need to get a little bit more out of them and try and get them winning games."
