Match Preview

Leeds will be without suspended winger Robert Snodgrass for the home clash with Preston.

Snodgrass, who recently returned from a knee injury and made only his second appearance of the season in Saturday's win over Sheffield United, sits out a one-game ban after being sent off for two yellow card offences.

Snodgrass replaced Lloyd Sam at the weekend, so the latter can expect to start again, although manager Simon Grayson has plenty of options in midfield, defence and attack.

Grayson must decide whether to stick with Bradley Johnson, preferred in central midfield to Neil Kilkenny, while Sanchez Watt and Amdy Faye, yet to make his first appearance for the club, were unused substitutes' on Saturday.

Luciano Becchio partnered Davide Somma up front against the Blades, but Ross McCormack and Ramon Nunez could also come into contention.

Preston manager Darren Ferguson could be without Wayne Brown due to a hamstring injury sustained in the 2-1 win over Coventry on Saturday.

Callum Davidson, who recently overcame a calf strain, returned to the starting line-up at the Ricoh Arena and is expected to retain his place after coming through the encounter unscathed.

On-loan Manchester United pair Matt James and Josh King will again miss out as they continue to struggle with respective ankle injuries, although the latter could return for the game against Reading on Saturday.

North End ended a five-match losing streak to secure just their second win of the season against the Sky Blues and move off the foot of the npower Championship table.

Match Report

Parkin treble inspires stunning North End comeback Jon Parkin struck a hat-trick as Preston produced an astonishing comeback to beat Leeds in a pulsating 10-goal encounter at Elland Road. In a game that had everything North End, who began the evening in the drop zone, recovered from 4-1 behind after 39 minutes to snatch a barely believable away success. Parkin had given them an early lead before the hosts responded brilliantly with Davide Somma's double added to goals from Luciano Becchio and Alex Bruce seemingly putting them in control. Anyone in attendance at Elland Road who thought the game was over was to be proven badly wrong, though, as North End produced a remarkable riposte. Parkin, who was applauded by the home support when he was substituted late on, was the star, netting either side of goals from Keith Treacy and Callum Davidson, before Iain Hume added a sixth. Going into the game on the back of winning only their second game of the season, against Coventry on Saturday, Preston enjoyed a dream start as, after tricking his way down the left, Treacy forced Shane Higgs to parry into the path of Parkin, who tapped into the empty net. Going behind seemed to spur Leeds on, though, and they soon restored parity as George McCartney supplied a cross which Becchio powerfully headed past Andy Lonergan. Leeds nearly went ahead moments later, only for Lonergan to deny Somma after he was brilliantly played in by a Becchio backheel. But the vocal home support did not have to wait too long to see their side take the lead as, after the resulting corner was seemingly cleared, Sean St Ledger ludicrously headed across goal to leave Bruce with the simplest of chances. Not content with a one-goal advantage, the Whites pushed for another and got it in the 20th minute as Somma's deflected effort beat a helpless Longergan. Simon Grayson's side were simply irresistible for the next 20 minutes, causing Preston's hapless defence all sorts of problems. Somma was again on hand to enhance his growing reputation in the 39th minute, cleverly cutting inside from the left wing before unleashing an unstoppable effort into the bottom corner. North End were not ready to give up without a fight, though, as Parkin reduced the arrears just a minute later after ghosting in behind the Leeds backline. The Lilywhites picked up where they left off at the start of the second period, with Treacy somehow scoring direct from a corner in the 54th minute to add to the tension. The game continued to compound the expectations of even the most imaginative fan as Preston made it 4-4 moments later when, after Bruce brought down Hume, skipper Davidson slotted the resulting spot kick home. And one of the most astonishing comebacks was complete when Davidson's long throw found Parkin, who showed brilliant control before completing his treble with an excellent half volley. The visitors were not finished there, though, adding a sixth as Billy Jones' diagonal ball found Hume who looped a header over Higgs into the opposite corner. And, despite Johnson rattling the post, that proved to be the last goal as Preston saw the game out to claim an astonishing victory.
