Nugent in his element as Preston take small step to the top flight - Louise Taylor

Copy from Football Unlimited of 06/05/2006.

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.

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.
