How PNE players rated at Adams Park
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.
Andy Boyle 6
Replaced the injured Woods at right-back with 11 minutes left. Got a late yellow card.
Daniel Johnson 6
Took Bodin’s place as part of the double sub with Boyle. Kept possession well.
Paul Gallagher 6
Introduced in the 83rd minute for Robinson. Played in midfield with Harrop pushed up.
