Preston applaud Arsenal
Preston have sent their congratulations to Arsenal after the Gunners equalled the club's record of going an entire league season without defeat.

North End's team that played in the 1888-89 season were nicknamed "The Invincibles" for their achievement.

The club also won the FA Cup in the same year, without conceding a goal in the competition.

"The Invicibles were a team apart in their era and Arsenal are a team apart in this," said chairman Derek Shaw.

"It is a fabulous achievement, nobody ever thought it would be repeated and the same will probably be thought again now," he told BBC Radio Lancashire.
