Preston   2 - 3   Scunthorpe

Preston 2-3 Scunthorpe

Preston 2-3 Scunthorpe

Martyn Woolford's late winner gave Scunthorpe a first away win in seven attempts and left struggling Preston second-bottom of the Championship.

Chris Dagnall's speculative low shot put the visitors ahead early on.

North End responded with two goals in six minutes after the break from defenders Craig Morgan and Billy Jones.

Michael O'Connor drew Scunthorpe level with a fine free-kick but, after Freddie Sears hit the post, Woolford met the rebound to snatch the winner.

That leaves Preston with just one home win all season, and Scunthorpe fully merited a victory which left boos ringing out around the stadium at the final whistle as manager Darren Ferguson pondered the challenge facing him.

The visitors were buoyed by the presence of West Ham striker Sears, who was handed his debut after joining on a month's loan, and he was a menace throughout.

Dagnall's fourth-minute opener came when he collected possession and hit a low 20-yard shot which flew into the net off the inside of a post.

Preston hit back in the 58th minute when Morgan rose highest at the back post to head home a corner from Paul Parry, before Jones fired back into the net after the visitors failed to clear from a corner.

The lead was short-lived as the visitors equalised when O'Connor curled a deep free-kick into the top right-hand corner.

Sears then fired against the woodwork in the 82nd minute from close range before Woolford swept home the rebound.
