Hull City boss Liam Rosenior has hailed Everton loanee Tom Cannon after his performance for Preston North End on Saturday afternoon.

PNE made the trip to Humberside in search of all three points but had to settle for one.

The Tigers were better side in the first half as PNE had a few scares, but North End improved after the break.

Ryan Lowe may feel that PNE could have won it had Troy Parrott found the target with a golden second-half chance, but it wasn’t to be.

That chance was set up by Tom Cannon with the Everton loanee making a superb break down the right side.

Cannon cut the ball back into a good area too but Parrott just couldn’t find the target.

We’re yet to see Cannon open his PNE account in front of goal but that will surely come sooner rather than later.

Cannon has gone close in recent games against Bristol City and Luton Town, so we’re backing him to find the net very soon.

Cannon couldn’t bag a goal against Hull City but he did impress Tigers boss Liam Rosenior on Saturday afternoon.

Rosenior has been quoted by the Lancashire Evening Post as saying that Rosenior was ‘outstanding’ and ‘one of the best’ strikers Hull have come up against under him.

That’s lofty praise for Cannon given the calibre of strikers in the Championship, but a sign of his ability and potential.

The 20-year-old is currently in his first loan spell away from Everton and there are going to be moments where his lack of experience shows.

Everton will be pleased with the amount of football Cannon is playing though, and is PNE are committing to loan signings – which they have been of late – then a little inconsistency from rookie talents is expected.

Impressing rival managers is a feather in the cap for Cannon, but you can be sure he would rather have a goal or two in North End colours.
