‘Words fail me’, ‘I give up’ – These Preston fans react as squad update shared



Preston have confirmed that they have replaced Connor Wickham with Joe Rafferty in their 25-man Championship squad after they were granted permission by the EFL.

The striker joined North End earlier in the summer but he suffered a serious hamstring injury that means he will spend the next few months, at least, on the sidelines.

Following the setback, Preston confirmed earlier today that they had been allowed to make a switch in their squad outside the window, so Rafferty is now involved.

That means he can be selected by boss Frankie McAvoy over the coming months, although he will still have a real battle to get into the matchday squad.
