Barnsley   2 - 0   Preston

Barnsley 2-0 Preston

Barnsley 2-0 Preston

Preston suffered their first defeat under manager Phil Brown - a result which leaves North End seven points adrift of safety in the Championship.

Garry O'Connor's opening goal came with a touch of fortune after his 23rd minute shot deflected wickedly off Leon Cort and beyond Andy Lonergan's dive.

Lonergan made fine stops from Danny Haynes, Frank Nouble and Jacob Mellis.

But the keeper's botched clearance let Jacob Butterfield break clear and set up Haynes for an injury-time tap-in.

Brown set his stall out with an attacking 4-3-3 formation but Preston rarely threatened Tykes goalkeeper Luke Steele as on-loan Chelsea youngster Mellis dictated proceedings impressively on his debut.

606: DEBATE

Mark Robins' side have now lost only once in their past seven home games and despite Ian Ashbee and Leon Clarke pulling on Preston shirts for the first time, the Tykes commanded the game.

O'Connor got the better of Cort in the cruellest circumstances to give his side the lead after a surging run from on-loan Manchester City full-back Kieran Tripper had set up the Barnsley attack.

Barnsley could have made it two when Tripper's 64th-minute free-kick found Diego Arismendi unmarked, only for the ball to bounce harmlessly off the Uruguayan midfielder's shins and into Lonergan's arms.

Barnsley ended stronger and Haynes sealed the points after Longergan's poor clearance.
