Preston North End progressed to the third round of the Carabao Cup with a 4-2 victory over Morecambe last night.
A brace from Emil Riis Jakobsen fired the visitors into a two-goal lead with half an hour played, before Anthony O’Connor halved the deficit on the stroke of half time.
Cole Stockton continued his excellent start to the campaign, scoring his fifth goal of the season to level the scoring on the hour-mark, but parity was not restored for long, with Ryan Ledson’s stunning strike gave Preston the lead just three minutes later.
Sepp van den Berg ensured a place in the next round for the Lilywhites, with his 79th minute strike proving to be the last goal of an exciting contest.
During an eventful night at the Mazuma Stadium, it was the man who scored Championship club’s third who particularly impressed the Preston faithful.
12 of these 25 Preston North End facts are fake – Can you identify them?
Ledson has made over 80 appearances for the Lancashire club since his move from Oxford United in 2018.
The 24-year-old is a product of the Everton academy system, but he was unable to make a league appearance for The Toffees, before his 2016 move to The U’s.
Here, we take a look at how some Preston North End fans have reacted to Ryan Ledson’s performance last night…

Make him captain! He leads by example on the pitch. Gets stuck in. And is vocal too.
