Preston   2 - 2   Bristol City

Preston skipper Callum Davidson converted a controversial last-minute penalty as his side completed a fine comeback against Bristol City.

The visitors had taken the lead from the spot through Paul Hartley after Youl Mawene had fouled Danny Haynes.

David Clarkson fired home a low right-footed shot from 12 yards for 2-0.

Jon Parkin pulled one back with a fine 18-yard volley before Louis Carey was adjudged to have handled in the box as Davidson levelled from the spot.


Preston manager Alan Irvine:
"We certainly left it late. I took a chance.

"I am not a gambler, but took a chance by going with a 2-4-4 formation by the end.

"I wouldn't call it a master stroke; it was a case of necessity.

"I have to say I'm obviously delighted with the character that the lads showed. I was questioning it for a while."

Bristol City manager Gary Johnson:
"We were in a winning position. We rode our luck, the goalkeeper has done his job making a couple of good saves.

"We then came out in the second half looking very strong and got our two goals.

"We started the Preston fans going home which is always a good sign. At that point you have to go 3-0 or 3-1 up."
