Full Time: Derby County 1-2 PNE

North End get the win in the end!

A good all round display from Alex Neil’s men who unjustly fell behind to Knight’s poke at goal after the PNE defence failed to clear. 

Tom Barkhuizen came off the bench to equalise with a stunning volley from the edge of the area, clipping the crossbar on the way in.

In the 91st minute Preston completed the comeback, Fisher’s cross striking an arm and Johnson’s confidently dispatching. 

Brighton and Hove Albion or Portsmouth await PNE in the third round. 

Two minutes into added time

North End won their penalty right on the stroke of the final minute of the game and are currently two minutes into added time which will be extended due to the goal. 

Never in doubt! Johnson confidently steps up to put the ball into the top right hand corner of the net.

DJ to take on his return...

Fisher’s cross is handled!

Sinclair cut inside well and forced a save from Roos, the ball is recycled by the right back and a Derby defender leans his arm into the ball.

Evans makes way in favour of Jack Marriott. 

George Evans is booked for a heavy challenge on Darnell Fisher.

Barkhuizen shot blocked

Matt Clarke charges down another Barkhuizen volley from a knock down at the edge of the area. PNE pushing hard now. 

Barkhuizen with a screamer!

Darnell Fisher nods the ball down to Barkhuizen on the edge of the area who unleashes a vicious volley which clips the bar on its way in! A goal of the seaosn contender already!
