He was a lucky boy....

Having gone 1-0 behind to Preston North End a six yard box scuffle sees ex-Canaries keeper Rudd inexplicably decide to rake  Col U's Bean's thigh with his studs in front of the referee. A penalty was an unavoidable decision for the referee. Iberhe clutches the ball as Rudd awaits his seemingly inevitable fate

Okuonghae has rather forcibly reminded Rudd of what he has just done and just what to expect.

Most of the sparse crowd  are taken back by the rather weak wafting of a yellow card only and Rudd is a very lucky boy indeed

Unlike Ibehre who seems bemused by the ploughed field like condition of the 12 yards between him and Rudd and plops the ball conveniently at his feet. Quite easily the worst penalty I have ever seen on a League ground.

Ibehre recovers a little to score a thundering strike  to level up but in the second half  the hapless Dickson plays Garner on, despite his waving armed remonstration and Garner's cross ends with the even more hapless Wilson ballooning the ball  into the net for an unfortunate own goal to give the End 3 points to take back to Lancashire.

Note to Joe Dunne. Bringing Mr. Static Clinton Morrison on with 10 minutes to go when 2-1 down is not one of your most astute of decisions.

Note to lino and ref. If a through ball is played off a defender then the attacker cannot be offside....
