Sheff Utd 1-0 Preston

28 August 2010 05:33
Gary Speed claimed his first win as Sheffield United boss as a goal from Jean Calve gave his side victory over Preston at Bramall Lane.Right-back Calve, on loan from Nancy, was making his Blades debut and marked it with a spectacular 35-yard strike. [LNB]Preston could only rue Keith Treacy's bad luck when a free-kick hit the bar. [LNB]Jon Parkin thought he had rewarded Preston pressure with a late penalty but a foul on him by Kyle Bartley was adjudged to be outside the area. [LNB]The defeat leaves Darren Ferguson's North End with three defeats from their opening four games and they are without an away win since January.
