The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

STEVE Cot­ter­ill may have – rightly – felt like his side could have left with all three points but with Cham­pi­onship foot­ball now just a win away this was a big re­sult.

The Cider Army trav­elled north in great num- bers and will have re­turned home know­ing their side are on the brink of pro­mo­tion thanks to Aaron Wil­bra­ham’s goal.

Wil­bra­ham typ­i­fies the sort of player who is vi­tal to th­ese pro­mo­tion pushes – ex­pe­ri­enced and with a great eye for goal.

But for Sam Johnstone he could have had more too, but Pre­ston too are now a step closer to pro- mo­tion which Simon Grayson de­serves great credit for.

Johnstone has proved to be a great ac­qui­si­tion, and he will surely be play­ing at a higher level next sea­son, be it on loan or per­ma­nently.
