Hayes hails King

Preston striker Paul Hayes believes on-loan Manchester United striker Josh King is destined for a bright future in the game. Hayes scored the only goal in Saturday's morale-boosting win over Portsmouth at Deepdale. Although Hayes was on the scoresheet, the 18-year-old King also caught the eye with a fine performance alongside him. Hayes said of the teenager: "It was good to play up front with Josh, we have four strikers at the club and we play in different ways. "Josh is a good player, you're not at Manchester United for no reason and he gives us something different with his pace and trickery. "Sometimes you don't realise he is only 18. With a bit more composure he would have scored himself."
