Chris Hughton: “It’s been a case of back to work for us at training.
“It’s a tough game coming up against Preston, we’re looking at it in the same way we looked at Sheffield United who also hadn't won for a while.
“They are a side who are constantly challenging in this division and regular play-off challengers – even if they haven’t had the best of runs of late.
“They are one of the top five or six teams.
“All of the teams have had a break, but out of Newcastle and Preston, we’ll see who has welcomed the break the most.”
