Archer Strikes Again

Last updated : 06 February 2022 By @pnemad

North End travelled to Hull with a sizeable away following. Somehow there was only one game in the whole game despite both sides having a number of chances.

Hull had the first opportunity of the game but Iversen denied the home side as he made a superb save from a header at point blank range to keep the scores level.

Preston then came into the game and had their own opportunities. There was a scramble in the box as Preston saw a header hit the bar before the rebound destined for goal was somehow clawed back off the line.

Shortly afterwards Iversen made another superb save from close range and the home side were trying to work out what they had to do to score. The game was goalless at the break.

Preston thought they had broken the deadlock shortly after the break. Browne fired home from inside the box but the referee blew for a handball much to the annoyance of Browne.

North End did take the lead shortly after. The home side lost the ball in their own half. Whiteman played in Archer who was in acres of space through on goal. There was only one result as he fired home past the advancing keeper.

The visitors played out the game taking all three points. The win pushes them up to 11th only 4 points of the play offs although they have played more games than teams around them.

February is a month where the games come thick and fast. Ground can be made up and Preston face Huddersfield who currently sit in the top six on Wednesday. It is another opportunity to gain on the top six as Preston hope to keep up recent momentum.
