‘Sack him’, ‘Borrowed time’ – Plenty of Preston North End fans fume at key figure after defeat v Blackburn

Published

Preston North End’s inconsistent run of form continued in the Championship on Tuesday evening, as they fell to a disappointing 3-0 defeat against Blackburn Rovers at Deepdale. 

Rovers controlled the game from start to finish, and were given a real boost in their chances of winning this one, as Joe Rafferty was shown a straight red card shortly before half-time as he gave away a penalty.

Adam Armstrong converted from the spot to give the visitors the lead at the break, and they wasted no time in doubling that lead.

Bradley Johnson made it 2-0 after 53 minutes, before former Preston North End youngster Tyrhys Dolan put Tony Mowbray’s side three goals ahead.

That’s the way it finished as Preston now sit 15th in the Championship table after their opening 13 matches in this year’s campaign.

It’s been a frustrating season so far for the club’s supporters, who had expectations of a serious challenge for a top-six finish in the second-tier this term.

That has seen some of the fans aim their frustrations towards manager Alex Neil, as they raise questions over his future at the club.

Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
