Preston raised their hopes of a playoff spot as they produced one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. Cameron Archer scored the only goal with 10 minutes of regulation time left on the clock. It was his third goal in his last four games after joining on loan from Aston Villa during the January transfer window. The win meant that they have lost just one of their last 11 games.
Peterborough’s Darren Ferguson: “There is no way we deserved to lose a game in which my goalkeeper didn’t have a shot to save. It was settled by the one piece of real quality from a player we tried to sign. We asked about Cameron before the January window even started but we were told he wasn’t available at the time. That’s the way it goes sometimes but as soon as he hit it I knew it was a goal.”
Preston’s Ryan Lowe: “I’m not really bothered about the performance – I’m more interested in the win. The performance wasn’t as good as we would have liked but we have played better and lost or drawn. It was always going to need a moment of brilliance from either side to get ahead and luckily enough it was from us. It was a great pass, a great touch and drop inside, and a great finish from Cameron. No one will remember the other bits because it wasn’t a day for football.”
