The final whistle is blown by the referee.
Mears misses derby day
Burnley manager Brian Laws will be without defender Tyrone Mears for the home clash with derby rivals Preston.
The right-back was sent off in the 1-0 defeat at Swansea and now serves a one-match ban, with David Edgar in line to deputise.
But Michael Duff is closing in on a return to full fitness having sustained a calf problem on the opening day against Nottingham Forest.
Striker Chris Iwelumo missed Scotland's double header against Lithuania and Liechtenstein after suffering a hamstring injury late in the defeat to Swansea.
He will also be assessed, but Laws is hopeful both Iwelumo and Duff will be passed fit for action.
Midfielder Chris McCann remains a long-term absentee with a knee injury.
Preston boss Darren Ferguson's injury concerns have begun to ease.
Defender Craig Morgan sustained a toe injury but was still able to play the last 15 minutes of Wales' 1-0 defeat in Montenegro on Friday.
He looks certain to be available to face the Clarets along with winger Keith Treacy, who has been nursing a groin strain.
The former Blackburn trainee pulled out of the Republic of Ireland squad ahead of the international break after picking up the injury in the recent defeat at Sheffield United.
Treacy is hoping to be fit and centre-back Wayne Brown, a summer signing from Leicester who has yet to make his competitive debut, is also set to come into contention.
Midfielder Barry Nicholson remains a long-term absentee but Ferguson has no other major worries.
Clarets toast late comeback
Substitute Jay Rodriguez scored a dramatic winner as Burnley mounted a remarkable late rally to leave derby rivals Preston devastated following a 4-3 thriller.
North End boss Darren Ferguson saw his men establish a 3-1 lead after 70 minutes as Jon Parkin added to earlier goals from Adam Barton and Keith Treacy.
But Chris Iwelumo, who opened the scoring, netted twice more in the closing stages after Billy Jones' dismissal to complete his hat-trick before homegrown hitman Rodriguez headed home the winner.
Sir Alex Ferguson - whose Manchester United side had been denied victory at Everton earlier in the day in similarly dramatic fashion - was at Turf Moor to see his son's team in action.
United duo Matty James and Josh King are on loan at Preston and both youngsters made the starting line-up.
Preston began in vibrant fashion when King tried his luck from 18 yards but Daniel Fox made a fine block to avert the danger.
Moments later former Blackburn trainee Treacy hit a fierce left-foot shot from 20 yards which drew a smart stop from Clarets goalkeeper Brian Jensen.
But with eight minutes played, Burnley went in front when a superb cross from former Preston winger Ross Wallace reached Iwelumo and he headed home.
In the 14th minute, Wallace went close from 30 yards with a fine effort as Burnley threatened to claim a second.
Yet midway through the first half Preston drew level when rookie midfielder Barton showed impressive pace and strength and fired home a right-footed shot from 12 yards into the bottom corner.
In the 28th minute, King succumbed to injury and was replaced by former Cardiff winger Paul Parry.
Three minutes later, Preston defender Jones hit the crossbar with a 25-yard strike and moments later his side were level.
Treacy showed neat footwork and pace to find space inside the left-hand side of the hosts' penalty box before a superb low shot flew past Jensen and into the bottom corner.
Preston went in search of a third goal after the break when Treacy hit an 18-yard shot which Jensen held comfortably.
The visitors went close again moments later when an inswinging corner from Wallace was met by defender Clarke Carlisle at the far post.
His effort flew just wide but Preston claimed their third with 20 minutes remaining when Parkin connected with a fine left-wing cross from Treacy and volleyed home right-footed from 10 yards.
Yet Preston lost Jones with 12 minutes remaining after he collected his second yellow card and a late rally reaped rich rewards.
Iwelumo produced a fine volley to make it 3-2 and then produced a deft flicked header - after Graham Alexander's cross skimmed off Jack Cork's head - to draw the hosts level.
But there was more drama to come as Rodriguez headed home when unmarked six yards out.
