Preston North End players and staff celebrate their stoppage-time equaliser

Here are the player ratings from the Good Friday clash which was Frankie McAvoy's first game as North End's interim head coach.

The draw saw PNE drop a place to 17th place but they increased their lead on third bottom Rotherham United to 10 points.

The PNE keeper made saves from Mumba, Cantwell and Stiepermann - his first-half block from Mumba the pick of the bunch.

Looked comfortable enough at right-back again, couple of safe passes going forward when a bit more adventure needed.
Worked hard in the centre of defence and was solid in the main. Had an early headed chance at the other end which went over.
Not as solid as Storey next to him. Teemu Pukki tended to pull on to his side of the back four to test him out.
Had Buendina and Pukki down his side of the pitch and was reasonably solid against them.
Provided the assist for the equaliser. Ledson played the sitting role in an attacking set-up so had plenty to do when Norwich pushed forward.
Played firstly on the right side of the midfield diamond and then at the point of it. Didn't get into the game as much as he would have wanted. Subbed in the second half.
Played in a narrow role in the midfield diamond rather than his usual wide position. Didn't really fit his style.
Played behind the two strikers at the point of the diamond. Had a chance in the first half which he might have done better with.
Had Preston's best chance until the late equaliser, going one-on-one with Tim Krul but seeing the keeper save his shot. Raw at times but worth sticking with.
Competed well physically with the Norwich centre-backs but noting in the way of chances came his way.
Introduced as PNE's first substitute in the 57th minute. Didn't make a major impact.
North End's last-gasp hero, scoring the equaliser. Energetic in all the time he was on pitch.
Part of the triple substitution in the 71st minute. Played off the striker in a bid to add creativity.
Given the job of leading the attack in the last 20 minutes as PNE chased an equaliser.
Had a late shot as PNE pressed for an equaliser. Came on with Maguire and Gordon.
