Leeds 0-0 Preston
Stubborn Preston ground out a hard-earned point against Leeds.

Liam Miller made his debut for Leeds on loan from Manchester and he curled a delightful 25-yard effort that Carlo Nash did well to save.

Leeds boss Blackwell attempted to breath new life into his side's faltering attack bringing on Robbie Blake and Jonathon Douglas.

With seven minutes remaining, the unmarked Blake fired in a shot, but Nash produced another fine save.

  • Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell:
    "Liam Miller only joined us on Friday but he did well.

    "The pace of the Championship is different from the Premiership and you can't dwell on the ball.

    "I am pleased for him that he has got a game under his belt because he wasn't getting many opportunities at Manchester United."

  • Preston manager Billy Davies:
    "We should have won the game and I am disappointed that we didn't.

    "Leeds started the second half well but we controlled the game after that, but we just haven't had the breaks.

    "I am not worried that we are drawing so many games. I would be worried if we were not playing well, but we are. We just need to take more chances."
