Sepp van den Berg made a good impression in Preston North End’s 0-0 draw with QPR on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old made his first start since joining Preston in January on loan from Liverpool.

Van den Berg played at right-back and made a strong impression as Preston drew 0-0 with QPR.

After the game, manager Alex Neil told the club’s website, “Excellent, to be fair we did play our right and left back in a certain way in terms of keeping them in, they weren’t as expansive.

“We know Sepp is very good on the ball, he’s quick and gives us good size in terms of defending crosses into the box.

“I thought he had a really good performance for his first game, really strong.

“Defensively he was strong, on the ball he was strong and got his distances right – he’s a good player and with your first game at any club, you always want to set a marker down.

“I think tonight a lot of fans will look at him and hope that he can continue that because I thought he was very good.

“He played men’s football at 16-years-old, he is certainly confident and I think he believes in his ability.”
