Down the line: Bees stung by Preston revival

CHAMPIONSHIP

PRESTON boss Alex Neil insists he did not have to change anything at half-time after his side roared back from 2-0 down to win 4-2 at Brentford.

A brace from Scott Sinclair (pictured) and one each for Brad Potts and Sean Maguire overturned Ivan Toney’s double for the Bees.

‘I thought we played well first half so it was a bit strange,’ said Neil. ‘I didn’t need to repair anything, we just needed to be better. We deserved our win.’

Potters don’t throw in Powell

NICK POWELL slid in a late equaliser from Tyrese Campbell’s cross to salvage Stoke a point from their home game with Birmingham, which ended 1-1.

Aitor Karanka’s Blues had looked set to move into the top six when Harlee Dean headed them in front midway through the second half.

LEAGUE ONE

Appy time for leaders Lincoln

JORGE GRANT scored two penalties before Lewis Montsma took Lincoln top with his late winner at Blackpool. Imps boss Michael Appleton said: ‘We are fit and athletic plus we have great energy, but we will lose games at stages. But, as a group, we’ve ticked a lot of boxes.’

LEAGUE TWO

Newport boss Dol’s out praise

MATTY DOLAN’S late penalty saw Newport come from behind to beat Mansfield and go top. Boss Michael Flynn said: ‘The energy used up on Wednesday (losing on penalties to Newcastle) and going 1-0 down, the character of the players was second to none.’
