Simon Grayson in confident mood ahead of Preston North End's FA Cup replay

Simon Grayson says that his Preston North End side will create chances against Nottingham Forest in their FA Cup fourth-round replay tonight.

Preston North End manager Simon Grayson has said that his side will create chances in tonight's FA Cup fourth-round replay against Championship side Nottingham Forest.

Preston, of League One, held Forest to a goalless draw in the initial tie to earn a replay tonight, and Grayson expects another strong showing from his players.

"It is not just another game for us, we want to win this game, but we are still the underdogs," he told the club's website. "We need to be hard to beat, but we will create chances even against a top Championship team.

"It was a good game down there and they were very complimentary of how we played and rightly so, because we put in a professional performance."

Both sides are in the playoff places in their respective divisions, with Preston fourth in League One and Forest fifth in the Championship.

Preston have already knocked out Championship opposition in Ipswich Town to reach the last 32.
