Ferguson amazed by comeback win

Published Add your comment

Darren Ferguson described Preston's astonishing comeback to beat Leeds 6-4 at Elland Road as the most amazing match of his career.

With the home side 4-1 up in the 39th minute and seemingly cruising, North End's chances of claiming a second successive away win seemed bleak.

However, Jon Parkin's wonderful hat-trick, along with goals from Keith Treacy, Callum Davidson and Iain Hume, sealed a remarkable turnaround, much to the delight of their flabbergasted manager, who said: "I have never been involved in such an amazing game. But all credit to my players for their sensational comeback. It's brilliant to get six goals, it would have been nice if we hadn`t conceded four."

On Parkin he added: "Parkin was brilliant. He was absolutely unplayable and caused all sorts of problems for their defence."
