Running the rule over North End’s 5-1 win at Wycombe.

Declan Rudd 7

This was the keeper’s third debut for Preston after two earlier loan spells. Not overly tested but made a couple of couple of decent saves.

Calum Woods 7

Played his part in a solid display at the back from North End but pulled up with a hamstring strain just before the fourth goal.

Tom Clarke 8

The skipper was moved into the centre of defence and assigned the job of marking Akinfenwa, which he did very well.

Paul Huntington 7

Strong at the back and good in the air, he also won the penalty for North End’s fourth goal when his shirt was pulled.

Greg Cunningham 7

Set up the fifth goal with a great run and cross from the left channel. A big 90 minutes under his belt after returning from injury.

John Welsh 7

First game for a while and he needed to shake off a layer of rust. But was his usual competitive self in the middle of the park.

Alan Browne 8

An excellent strike for his first goal and then showed composure from the penalty spot for the second. Plenty of energy.

Billy Bodin 7

Decent debut from the midweek signing after just two training sessions with his new team-mates. Has a presence about him.

Josh Harrop 8

Had a great game in the No.10 position, opening and closing the scoring with great finishes. Showed a great range of passing.

Daryl Horgan 8

Scored the third goal and played his part in three of the others. Looked a real threat 
cutting in from the left.

Callum Robinson 7

Led the attack in the No.9 position and did very well. Helped stretch the Wycombe defence and unlucky not to score.
