Leeds fans, look away now…

Wow. Wow x6. When Leeds United went 4-1 up on 39 minutes at home to struggling Preston in the Championship last night, no one could have foreseen North End’s stunning comeback.

Preston striker Jon Parkin led the fightback. He scored a hat-trick as the visitors blasted five (FIVE!) unanswered goals at Elland Road. Crazy.

“I have never been involved in such an amazing game,” said Preston gaffer Darren Ferguson, trying not to grin like a loon. “But all credit to my players for their sensational comeback.”

Leeds manager Simon Grayson was, understandably, less impressed: “We made stupid mistakes and it cost us… To lose 6-4 at home is unbelievable really, and embarrassing.”
