Loan watch: Jermaine Beckford scores in Preston play-off win

On-loan forward gives Lilywhites first leg lead

Jermaine Beckford’s early goal against Chesterfield gave Preston North End a 1-0 first leg lead as they look to win promotion the Championship.

Having missed out on automatic promotion to MK Dons after losing to Colchester United on the last day of the regular season, the Lilywhites took just six minutes to put that behind them at the Proact Stadium.

Running onto Chris Humphrey’s through-ball, the Jamaican international calmly chipped the ball over goalkeeper Tommy Lee to give his on-loan side the lead ahead of Sunday’s second leg at Deepdale.
