Preston were beaten 2-1 away to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday with the Lilywhites seeing two of their players sent off for fighting among themselves.
The two eejits in question were Jermaine Beckford and Eoin Doyle, who clashed in the last minute of the game with the score at 2-1 to the home side.
The incident occurred after Doyle failed to pass to Beckford as the visitors looked for an equaliser. What followed was rather silly…

The sending off of those two Preston players made it three red cards in total in the Championship clash, after Fernando Forestieri was dismissed for an off-the-ball incident in the second-half with Ben Pearson.
Nor surprisingly, Preston boss Simon Grayson wasn’t too happy after the game. He said:
You expect it in the playground between four or five-year-olds, not from two professionals who’ve been in the game a long time.
They’ve let themselves down, but that’s the least of it. They’ve let our supporters down who’ve travelled here, and ultimately cost us the potential of getting a point or maybe three points because 11 against 10 we were on top and we had them.
For something like that to happen is embarrassing. It’s a joke, it’s a disgrace.
