Sheff Wed   1 - 2   Preston

Sheffield Wednesday 1-2 Preston

Sheffield Wednesday 1-2 Preston

Jon Parkin scored the winner as Preston bounced back from their 4-0 defeat at QPR with victory at Sheffield Wednesday to stay in the Championship top six.

Leon Clarke and Luke Varney forced saves from Preston keeper Andy Lonergan but Neil Mellor scored first from Eddie Nolan's cross to put the Owls in front.

Jermaine Johnson struck the North End post twice in quick succession before Michael Gray's equalising free-kick.

Darren Purse hit the Preston woodwork before Parkin side-footed home.


Sheffield Wednesday boss Brian Laws:
"Preston certainly lived a charmed life in the first half and I am sure anybody who saw the game would not deny that.

"The players are disappointed because we deserved more from the performance.

"It was the best we have played for some time and if we can continue in that way then it bodes well."
