Preston   1 - 2   Leeds

Highlights - Preston 1-2 Leeds

Preston 1-2 Leeds

Leeds climbed to fifth in the table after goals from Neil Kilkenny and Billy Paynter helped them beat relegation-threatened Preston.

The visitors took the lead when Kilkenny's spectacular 20-yard shot blasted into the top right-hand corner.

Leeds, three points from the automatic promotion places, doubled their lead when Paynter hit the top left corner.

Keith Treacy found Iain Hume and the forward halved the deficit with a well-taken shot from just outside the box.

The defeat leaves Preston 13 points adrift of safety at the bottom and in need of a miraculous turnaround in fortunes if they are to avoid dropping to League One.

The home side, boosted by the availability of goalkeeper Andy Lonergan and defender Craig Morgan, nearly made the perfect start only for Treacy's ferocious strike to cannon off the crossbar.

Striker Chris Brown, who scored his first goal of the season against Norwich at the weekend, also went close but visiting keeper Kasper Schmeichel was alert to the header.

Preston looked the more likely to score, but the home side were stunned when Kilkenny struck in the 29th minute.

Leeds then pressed for a second and just before the hour Paynter found the target for what proved to be the winner.

North End showed spirit to bounce back through Hume and pushed forward until the closing stages but could not break down a stout Leeds defence.
