Match Preview

Waiting game for Brown Preston boss Phil Brown will assess the fitness of several players ahead of the home clash with promotion-chasing Leeds. Goalkeeper Andy Lonergan and defender Craig Morgan missed Saturday`s 1-1 draw at Norwich with a gastric-flu bug. Striker Nathan Ellington turned his ankle during the warm-up and his place in the starting line-up went to Paul Hayes. Midfielder Barry Nicholson picked up a calf injury in the first half at Carrow Road and defender Leon Cort sustained a hamstring strain. David Gray left the pitch on a stretcher with a shin injury in the closing stages and Sean St Ledger and Billy Jones also picked up knocks. Brown will check on all of his walking wounded as he seeks to record his first win since his appointment in January. Leeds' latest loan signing Barry Bannan will go straight into their squad. The 21-year-old Scotland international, who will stay at Elland Road until the end of the season, is expected to feature at some stage. Manager Simon Grayson, who has no new injury or suspension worries, has the option of recalling skipper Richard Naylor to his starting line-up. Central defender Naylor, who made his first appearance since mid-October when stepping off the substitutes' bench against Doncaster on Saturday, had knee surgery in November. Grayson has plenty of options in defence, with Alex Bruce hoping for a recall after making way for Leigh Bromby on Saturday, and also in attack. Billy Paynter, Ross McCormack, Davide Somma and Sanchez Watt all started on the bench at the weekend and are hoping to play their part in Leeds' promotion push.

Match Report

Leeds punish Preston Promotion hopefuls Leeds climbed to fifth in the npower Championship table as goals from Neil Kilkenny and Billy Paynter saw them push Preston a step closer to relegation with a 2-1 win at Deepdale. Preston had started well at Deepdale as they looked to record a first league win in 14 games, but it was the visitors who opened the scoring through Kilkenny's fine strike. Paynter then doubled the advantage and Iain Hume's goal was not enough to help Preston secure a point. The win moves Leeds above Nottingham Forest and they now lie just three points short of an automatic promotion place. Preston are now 13 points adrift of safety and are in need of a miracle if they are to retain their Championship status. Preston were boosted by the availability of keeper Andy Lonergan and defender Craig Morgan, who missed the draw with Norwich with a stomach bug. They were also able to include on-loan Bolton man Ricardo Gardner while Leeds had their own loan signing, Aston Villa's Barry Bannan, on the bench. Despite their precarious position Preston almost made a dream start as Keith Treacy's ferocious strike from the edge of the Leeds box cannoned back off the crossbar with Kasper Schmeichel well beaten. Hume then fired over from distance as North End raced out of the traps. Striker Chris Brown, who grabbed his first goal of the season against Norwich at the weekend, also went close but Schmeichel was able to gather his header. Leeds captain Jonny Howson blazed over the bar on a rare foray forward for the play-off hopefuls but the hosts continued to look the more likely. Schmeichel made an athletic save to deny a low Eddie Johnson drive before Gradel forced Lonergan to do likewise for Phil Brown's men. Preston may have looked the more likely to grab an opener but they were stunned when the visitors took the lead against the run of play. The ball fell to Kilkenny 20 yards out and he hammered the ball beyond Lonergan into the top right-hand corner in the 29th minute. Paynter's shot was well blocked by Sean St Ledger as Leeds pressed for a second before Brown missed a glorious chance to level eight minutes before the break. Hume's cross found the striker six yards out, but he somehow failed to hit the target. Treacy again went close from distance upon the resumption but Schmeichel was again equal to the task. Simon Grayson's men now looked far more assured and the lively Gradel was twice narrowly off target from the edge of the box, but Paynter's effort a few minutes later was on target and saw Leeds double their advantage in the 57th minute. But Preston showed great spirit to respond just six minutes later. Treacy picked out Hume and the former Barnsley man smashed the ball into the top corner to give the home side hope of salvaging something from the game. Paynter could only hit the bar from close range from Gradel's cross, before the winger himself wasted a good chance by heading straight at Lonergan. Bannan made his debut as a substitute and Preston pushed forward late on in search of a leveller but Leeds held out for the three points.
