FT Latics 0 Preston 0.
Had everything except a goal.
Latics sub, Pearce for Bennett.
My God that is two red cards. Ched Evans flying in on a grounded Curtis Tilt and catches him two-footed in the chest. Absolutely shocking. Red card comes straight out.
Sub Humphrys for Magennis. 13 mins to go.
Close for Preston, Parrott on the shoulder of the last defender (yes, you heard right), fires just wide of the far post.
Official now getting dog’s abuse as he stops the game for a Preston (non-head) injury...after not stopping it for Whatmough in the first half, which caused Max Power’s booking...and Power and Leam making that very point. To not much avail.
Will Keane is far too honest there...he was defo clipped by the last defender inside the box, but stayed up, and his shot was blocked. If he goes down it’s a pen. Leam’s face in the technical area says it all.
Deep cross from Power, flicked back by Magennis, and Kerr’s effort is diverted behind for a corner.
LEGEND IN THE HOUSE!
HT Latics 0 Preston 0. Good, lively contest, sign of things to come at this level. And with Jack Whatmough limping off, you’d have thought centre-back might have just moved up from ‘needed’ to ‘priority’ in the transfer market.
