Preston North End on the attack against Luton at Deepdale

Here are the PNE player ratings, with goalkeeper Daniel Iversen and left-back Joe Rafferty the two players to stand out.

The goalkeeper produced four good saves in the game and was so unlucky to get the final touch to Luton's winner.
The Liverpool loanee was pulled up for three foul throws in the game which was some achievement. Steady enough at right-back though.

Handled the threat in the air from Adebayo quite well. Helped keep Luton at bay until late on when a cross into the middle wasn't stopped.
Reasonable solid at the back bar one occasion when he dwelt on the ball too long and allowed Cornick a run at goal.
The left-back was PNE's best outfield player on the day, covering back well when team-mates slipped up and clearing the box well.
A welcome return to action for the midfielder after injury but lacked a touch of sharpness. Worked hard as per usual.
His usual range of passing was missing, the midfielder too deep and having to play long.
The winger was on the periphery of the game, save for one dribble in the second half which ended with him having a shot blocked.
Made skipper in Alan Browne's absence, DJ was unable to influence the game from his attacking midfield role.
Frustrating afternoon for the young winger with him unable to weave his skills from the left hand side. At times played too deep.
Worked tirelessly chasing long balls but found it tough going against the Luton defence. He had a close range shot blocked by the keeper.
Introduced as part of a double change, he played on the right-wing and then up front. Put a rebound over the bar.
Came on with Maguire and made a couple of good runs down the left-wing, getting behind the Luton back line.
Joined the action with nine minutes left and didn't have time to make an impact, this Bodin's first appearance since the end of January,
A late change, not long before Luton scored. Couldn't get into the game as he would have liked.
The last sub made, the last roll of the dice. Gallagher put in a nice cross into the box and in stoppage-time but no one attacked it.
