Match Preview

St Ledger set for North End return Preston boss Darren Ferguson looks set to be boosted by the return of Sean St Ledger for the home clash with Portsmouth. The highly-rated Republic of Ireland international has yet to play this term after suffering a hamstring strain in the pre-season friendly at Oldham. However, he has trained this week and seems certain to bolster a North End defence that has shipped six goals in their opening two matches of the season. Fellow centre-back Wayne Brown, a summer signing from Leicester, has yet to make a league appearance for Ferguson`s side. He suffered a hip-flexor injury in pre-season and then picked up a slight calf strain. Midfielder Barry Nicholson remains a long-term absentee as he recovers from a leg injury. John Utaka is an injury doubt for Portsmouth. The Nigerian forward limped out of last Saturday's 1-1 draw at Reading after aggravating a hamstring problem and has not trained all week. But Pompey could be boosted by the return of fellow forward Tommy Smith, who missed out against the Royals and Stevenage in the Carling Cup with a hip injury. Defender Aaron Mokoena was also absent last week after his return from international duty with South Africa was delayed and he will be available. Hayden Mullins, who has been playing as a makeshift right-back, is set to continue despite being hampered by a knee problem. Veteran striker Kanu remains unavailable until his contract dispute with the club is resolved.

Match Report

Pompey hit by Hayes fever Paul Hayes breathed new life into Preston's season with a first-half winner that sunk Portsmouth and lifted his side off the bottom of the npower Championship. The summer signing from Scunthorpe struck in the 18th minute with a clinical right-foot finish after a fine cross from Billy Jones. It was his third goal of the season and proved enough to secure the points for Darren Ferguson's men, who had lost their opening two matches of the season without finding the net. Progress has been slow at Deepdale since Ferguson replaced Alan Irvine at the turn of the year but their campaign is at least up and running. The result lifted Preston above Portsmouth, who look destined for a long season after collecting one point from their opening three matches. North End could have led in the seventh minute when Paul Coutts was afforded the time and space to blaze wildly over the crossbar from close range. Pompey threatened in the 11th minute when Marc Wilson hit a 30-yard shot which drew a fine block from Coutts. Wilson tried his luck from distance again moments later but Hayes' opener from Jones' delivery put Preston in control. Former Deepdale favourite David Nugent fired over the crossbar from the edge of the penalty area in the 18th minute and Portsmouth midfielder Michael Brown missed the target from 25 yards. Hayes and on-loan Manchester United midfielder Matty James also went close for the hosts before the break as Preston struggled to translate their dominance into goals. Pompey striker Tommy Smith went close for the visitors shortly after the break but Hayes should have added a second for Preston in the 58th minute only to volley wide when well placed. The hosts went even closer shortly before the hour mark when 18-year-old striker Josh King - also on loan from Old Trafford - fired goalwards from inside the penalty box, forcing visiting goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown into a smart stop. In the 69th minute, James brought another impressive save from Ashdown with a fierce close-range shot. Portsmouth sought to find a response as Carl Dickinson rifled in a shot from distance which Danny Mayor did well to clear. The visitors threatened again in the 75th minute when Ibrahima Sonko headed wide from six yards out. King then forced Ashdown into another superb save and Keith Treacy also went close as the hosts finished the stronger.
