    Preston get to the final, then. No surprises - but what a goal from Beckford. I think they'll be tough to beat by either Sheffield United and Swindon, and can see them going up regardless of who they face.
    They deserve it based on their form this season.

    Agreed. They were unlucky that Dons pipped them to the post. I'd say Swindon deserve to face them more than Sheffield United, but that's yet to be decided in the second-leg.

    If true, does that mean Preston don't go up?!
    Doubt it. Game was over. More likely that Preston will be handed a hefty fine, and may see them play some games behind closed doors but can't see it.

    Nothing will happen seen much worse happen with no punishment

    Just got back from Deepdale. Preston simply outclassed us and deserved to win the tie, although a 4-0 aggregate score reflects badly on us because despite today's at best average performance, I was baffled at how we didn't score in the first leg. Despite the clear quality that Preston have, they are a very dirty side and if Garner didn't spend the whole match rolling about on the floor, then I'd have a lot more respect for him - he's a brilliant player after all. Beckford's 2nd goal was pure class and all.



    Here's what Evatt tweeted after the game:

    To be attacked on a football pitch and fear for your safety is an absolute disgrace I was punched kicked and spat on several times #disgrace

    Just before the pitch invasion, my mate said that Evatt didn't stand a chance when the fans would eventually go on the pitch. They were booing him when ever he got the ball, but I really didn't expect him to be punched, kicked and spat on. Hope those responsible are punished.

    Great, great goal. Stunning hit - and it seemed to have pinpoint accuracy. Murphy didn't stand a chance. He showed two very techniques for both goals, too. He's a cut above other third tier strikers.

    Yeah, looked just on good on Sky as it did from the away end. Reportedly on 36k/week at Bolton

    No surprise he was loaned out, then. He seems to have rejuvenated himself at Deepdale. Bolton have quite a potential for killing strikers, in truth. Hopefully Lennon can rectify that in pre-season. He has the makings of a great squad full of young talent, like Vela, Clough etc.

    If true then the club should be severely punished as well for failing to control their fans. Not sure what the appropriate response would be but needs to be sufficient to send a message to other clubs and their "fans" to deter such actions in the future.

    By spending 10 Million pounds before they sacked him for failing to get automatic promotion
    No he really did not a team which finished 4th under Chris Hughton the season before was battling against relegation for 3/4 of the 2012/13 season. Then the 2013/14 season 2 home wins in a calendar year in league competitions and having a midtable team finish in 21st position. He could get man united relegated in 2 years if given the chance.
    OK

    Somebody has been charged for an attack on Evatt once the pitch invasion was underway.

    Game of the season in any of the three FL divisions. Incredible game. Hopefully there's still some drama left for the play-off final. I fancy Preston.

    Sheff Utd fans must be wondering what they've got to do to go up. Surely just a matter of time.

    That first twenty minutes last night was akin to the Alamo. Fair play to Sheffield United for still managing to come back and make a game of it.

    Always drama when it comes to the play offs, Norwich v Ipswich now that is bound to have a lot of drama.
