The Times/Sunday Times has also moved some of the older articles into an archive which requires separate registration and requires you to pay to access the content. The Independent now charges for access to articles more than a week old.

If Wayne Rooney was watching this on television from his oxygen tent he will have been heartened by David Nugent's impact on a night when Preston took a small step towards the Premiership.
Making his first start after a swift recovery from a broken metatarsal, Nugent scored the sort of virtuoso goal that would grace a World Cup final and arguably affords Billy Davies's side a slight advantage before Monday's semi-final second leg at Deepdale where acquaint-ances will once again be renewed.
In David Healy, Sean Gregan and Eddie Lewis, Leeds had three Preston old boys in their starting XI. Another, Richard Cresswell, began on the bench. Lewis, especially, caught the eye, the Californian left-winger persistently troubling Preston as he reminded Davies just what he lost when Kevin Blackwell came calling. Indeed, Leeds believed they should have been awarded three penalties after Lewis was fouled by first Youl Mawene and then Tyrone Mears, and Matthew Kilgallon was also bundled over.
