Preston ended a four-year absence from the second tier with promotion last season

Preston manager Simon Grayson has praised the way his squad have adapted to injuries to achieve a club record sixth clean sheet in a row.

The Lilywhites kept QPR out on Saturday in a 0-0 draw, their fourth stalemate in the last six games.

It means they go into the international break 17th in the Championship after their promotion last season.

"I think everybody deserves a huge amount of credit," 45-year-old Grayson told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"We've worked hard on the training ground, but you can do that and not put it into practice on a matchday, and full credit to the players that have done it.

"We've got Tom Clarke out, Greg Cunningham out, so we've not really had a first-choice back four or five and the lads that have been there have been fantastic.

"It was a really professional performance and a lot of satisfaction for the players who've dug deep again, defended with their lives and worked extremely hard so it is a really pleasing result."
