Preston North End find themselves in the pot for the next-round of the FA Cup, after an emphatic 5-1 win saw them breeze past League Two side Wycombe Wanderers.
Alex Neil’s men headed into their game at Adams Park on the back of a demoralising 3-2 defeat at home to Middlesbrough, but after picking up momentum in their FA Cup thrashing of Wycombe they’ll be hoping to take this into their next Championship encounter.
Preston North End were terrific in all areas of the park on Saturday afternoon, as goals from Josh Harrop (2), Alan Browne (2) and Daryl Horgan saw them run riot.
One highlight in particular on the day was the debut of their new man Billy Bodin after being crowned their first signing of the transfer window, with his arrival from Bristol Rovers.
The 25-year-old featured for 79 minutes and provided an assist for Preston’s third in a performance that highlighted the threat that Bodin can bring to this Preston side.
Nevertheless, after the emphatic win. Billy Bodin took to his personal Twitter account (@BillyBodin9) to show his delight having made his debut for Alex Neil’s side.
Great win for the boys today and buzzing to have made my debut for @pnefc ⚽️????????????

So without further ado, here’s a look at exactly what Preston North End fans made of the message…
