Preston North End player ratings vs Stoke City with one 7/10 in disappointing defeat

PNE were beaten 1-2 by Stoke City on Saturday afternoon

Preston North End's play off push took a blow on Saturday, as the Lilywhites were beaten 1-2 by relegation threatened Stoke City.

The Potters took the lead in the second half, after a dull and drab first 45 minutes. Lynden Gooch - who was lively all day - saw his low cross put into his own net by Andrew Hughes. PNE hit back four minutes later through substitute Milutin Osmajic, but Stoke centre-back Luke McNally popped up with a scruffy winner three minutes from time.
