Preston returned to winning ways tonight, beating Birmingham City 1-0 at St Andrews thanks to a Scott Sinclair goal.

North End had lost all three games in all competitions since the turn of the year, and really needed to hit back against the Blues.

Just one goal settled the game, as Sinclair finished off a fine counter-attack to give Preston all three points against his former club.

Alex Neil’s men then held firm to keep a clean sheet and secure the win, with defender Paul Huntington celebrating his 300th game for the club in style.
