North End easily overcame Sunderland on a cold afternoon in the North East. Sunderland are having a wretched time and seem doomed to relegation as Preston comfortably won by a two goal margin.
Maguire broke the deadline after the break with a diving header to continue his recent good run since returning from injury. Clarke-Salter was sent off for the home side for hs second bookable offence before Robinon doubled Preston's lead.
The margin of victory could have been greater as chances were wasted but it is the three ponts that count the most at this time of the season. Preston now have a huge Easter coming up facing Sheffield Wednesday on Good Friday before playing Derby at home beofre the sky cameras on Easter Monday.
