Match Preview

Clarke missing for beleaguered North End Preston manager Phil Brown will be without striker Leon Clarke when his rock-bottom side host leaders QPR. Clarke, who scored his first goal for North End in Tuesday`s 2-2 draw with Watford, is ineligible to face his parent club under the terms of his loan. Striker Iain Hume has been nursing a hamstring injury but is edging closer to full fitness and may come into contention to face Neil Warnock's men. Midfielder Paul Coutts and forward Chris Brown are also hoping to be passed fit after injury to boost North End's options. Boss Brown said: "We will have Iain Hume hopefully back to add a little bit of strength to the strike force. "I have fingers crossed that they [Chris Brown and Paul Coutts] are going to be throwing their hat in the ring, but these players have been out for a while and are lacking a bit of game time." Tommy Smith will be missing from the QPR squad. The forward scored Rangers' goal in last Sunday's 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest, but suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury before half-time and faces another fortnight on the sidelines. With Smith out and Hogan Ephraim halfway through a three-match ban, Norwegian international Petter Vaagen Moen could be handed a rare start in midfield. Boss Neil Warnock could shake up his defence after blasting them for conceding against Forest so Danny Shittu could make his first appearance since returning to the club. Midfielder Akos Buzsaky (knee) will not be risked, while Peter Ramage (cruciate), Jamie Mackie and Patrick Agyemang (both broken leg) remain long-term absentees.

Match Report

North End hold Rangers to pick up point Barry Nicholson's second-half thunderbolt salvaged a precious point for rock-bottom Preston and denied npower Championship leaders QPR victory at Deepdale. Icelandic striker Heidar Helguson scored his ninth goal of the season to put Neil Warnock`s men ahead in the 37th minute but North End gradually improved after the restart. And midfielder Nicholson struck a superb effort from 18 yards in the 64th minute to level matters at 1-1 for the hosts, who remain without a win since Phil Brown took the helm at the start of last month. Preston went close inside the third minute when a cross by David Gray was greeted by Nathan Ellington, whose right-footed shot from 12 yards out drew a fine block from Rangers defender Clint Hill. Moments later the visitors fashioned their first opening when playmaker Adel Taarabt hit a fierce shot from 18 yards which forced a fine stop from Preston`s on-loan goalkeeper Iain Turner. In the 14th minute, the hosts went close again when an inswinging corner from the impressive Keith Treacy was met by a firm header from defender Sean St Ledger which flew wide. Yet again the pendulum swung back in Rangers` favour and, after Leon Cort fouled Helguson, Taarabt hit a free-kick from 30 yards which drew another fine save by Turner, who tipped the ball round a post. QPR`s Alejandro Faurlin then drilled an 18-yard free-kick over the crossbar before Treacy had an effort blocked by Rangers' Matthew Connolly. Rangers midfielder Wayne Routledge and North End striker Nathan Ellington both went close before the visitors forged ahead with their first meaningful goalscoring opportunity in the 37th minute. Ishmael Miller showed his quality on the left flank with a fine cross that Helguson met with a right-foot finish high into the net from six yards out. Preston almost responded immediately but Johnson had a shot saved by Paddy Kenny in the Rangers goal. Two minutes after the restart, Rangers almost doubled their lead but Helguson headed against the crossbar. Preston boss Brown then replaced Johnson with Paul Hayes in the 55th minute and the move breathed new life into the hosts as an attacking force. They were level in the 64th minute when Ellington`s neat header gave Nicholson the space to his a superb right-footed shot into the top corner from 18 yards. Ellington then drilled an effort over the crossbar before Taarabt hit an effort just wide of the mark and then drew a smart stop from Turner. Warnock made a change in the final quarter as Rob Hulse replaced Helguson up front. Preston had chances in the closing stages as they sought to find a winner but Rangers held firm to hang on for a hard-earned point.
