From our match thread: Click Here…
Well, that was a letdown with so many fans making the trip to Preston expecting a win, me included. Struggling to pick a decent performer but here goes.
Nyland: 5 One great save but jittery and hesitant as ever for me, just one more game and he’s gone thankfully.
Elmo:4 Awful for most of the game, can’t believe how poor he’s been lately.
Bree: 5 Being generous here. He is slow Shaky and gives me the frights.
Chester: 6 Probably the best of our pedestrian back four.
Hutton: 5 All over the place and some of his defending was last-ditch desperation stuff.
Whelan: 6 Probably our best player and that really says it all, 3 games in a week was asking far too much of him.
Hourihane; 4 Weak, poor passing and when he doesn’t score he’s the weakness, feeble.
McGinn: 6 Gives it his best every game but today he wasn’t at it, missed another sitter.
El Ghazi:5 Flattered to deceive but looked better at the end when he was switched to the left wing.
Tammy: 6 Good header for the goal but his hold up play was sloppy.
Bolasie: 4 How did he start never mind stay on so long awful.
Albert and Barney: 6 Thought we looked far more in control with these two on and only Dean Smith will know why they never started.
Smith:6 Come on Deano this isn’t working
