Preston striker Paul Hayes admitted he surprised even himself after scoring twice with his head in the 3-0 friendly win over Blackburn.
The summer signing from Scunthorpe marked his home debut with a clinical brace of headers before Chris Brown completed the scoring from the penalty spot.
Hayes told the club's official website: "I rarely score goals with my head as that is my weak point but it has come off, though, and I am really pleased."
He added: "Since I have been here, David Unsworth has been telling me and having a go at me to get into the box more. The first one I popped out wide, and I have had him in the back of my head saying get into the box.
"I got into the box and flicked it on as quickly as I could and then was able to do so again for the second goal from the free-kick."
