Preston North End came so close to an impressive win at Norwich City on Saturday afternoon, but ended up drawing 2-2.
Alex Neil took his side down to Carrow Road to take on his former club, and Preston took the lead when Scott Sinclair converted from the spot following a foul on Ben Davies.
Teemu Pukki equalised as Declan Rudd committed a costly mistake, though a superb move saw Darnell Fisher fire Preston back in front before the break.
North End couldn’t hang on for a point though, as Przymeslaw Placheta fired home an 85th minute equaliser for the Canaries.
There were positive signs from Preston though, with a couple of better displays since the 1-0 home defeat to Swansea City last weekend.
One player to earn huge praise off the back of Saturday’s display was Ryan Ledson, who has started the season in the same great form he ended last season.
Ledson played a superb pass to find Sinclair in the build-up to Fisher’s goal, whilst he made a team-high four tackles as well as one interception, three clearances and two key passes.
The 23-year-old is in fine form at the moment, and Preston fans have been taking to Twitter to hail the former Oxford United man for his performance at Carrow Road.
Supporters called Ledson ‘class’, ‘terrific’ and ‘so underrated’, believing that he could be even better than Ben Pearson and earn a Premier League move having established himself as one of the first names on the teamsheet.
Ledson was class today 👏🏻#pnefc

Unpopular opinion : Ledson is gonna exceed Pearson's ability this season #pnefc

Don’t get the change to 3 back never looked comfortable with it, on another note Ledson absolutely controlled the majority of that game so underrated #pnefc

Ryan Ledson will be the next some Prem clubs start looking at. Quality. His eye for a pass into the channels is superb. #pnefc

First North End game I’ve enjoyed watching us play in bloody ages. Probably a fair result and happy with the point. Ledson terrific. #pnefc

Excellent performance today and very unlucky to come away with just a point. Ledson superb and rapidly becoming the first name on the team sheet. Norwich will do well so although disappointing to concede late, I guess all in all its a good point. #pnefc

How good has Ryan Ledson been today by the way. Come on leaps and bounds since lockdown. #pnefc
