Snodin hails defensive efforts

Simon Grayson's side, who climed to a fourth-placed finish, have lost only one of their last 15 league matches, won 11 successive home games and have conceded only six goals in their last 11 fixtures.

Jermaine Beckford and fellow strikers Luciano Becchio and Robert Snodgrass have hogged the headlines after scoring 63 goals between them.

But Snodin said: "We keep talking about the goals we've scored and the skill, but the back five have been the same.

"The full-backs have been terrific, the three centre-backs who've played, and the goalkeeper.

"If you're back five is solid and you have clean sheets, you can look at the middle of the park and go from there."
