Sheff Utd   1 - 0   Preston

Sheffield United 1-0 Preston

Sheffield United 1-0 Preston

Gary Speed claimed his first win as Sheffield United boss as a goal from Jean Calve gave his side victory over Preston at Bramall Lane.

Right-back Calve, on loan from Nancy, was making his Blades debut and marked it with a spectacular 35-yard strike.

Preston could only rue Keith Treacy's bad luck when a free-kick hit the bar.

Jon Parkin thought he had rewarded Preston pressure with a late penalty but a foul on him by Kyle Bartley was adjudged to be outside the area.

The defeat leaves Darren Ferguson's North End with three defeats from their opening four games and they are without an away win since January.
