Red cards mar Leeds' night of triumph - Louise Taylor

Copy from Football Unlimited of 09/05/2006.

Leeds are marching towards the Premiership but Kevin Blackwell's side appear to be wearing hobnail boots. They collected eight yellow cards and had two players, Stephen Crainey and Richard Cresswell, sent off for second bookable offences during a heated encounter studded with spiteful tackles in which Preston's Brett Ormerod broke a leg and Carlo Nash fractured a cheekbone.

In the midst of the mayhem - and, significantly, before the two dismissals - Leeds scored two goals, Rob Hulse and Frazer Richardson propelling them towards a play-off final in Cardiff against Crystal Palace or, more probably, Watford.

When a power cut plunged Deepdale into darkness as the half-time whistle blew it was possibly an omen that the lights were about to go on Preston's season. Though the second half started after a 30-minute delay, Billy Davies's side rarely looked like building on the initiative they believed they had gained in drawing 1-1 at Elland Road last Friday.
