Preston North End fans have finally seen glimpses of the kind of impact Josh Onomah can make to Ryan Lowe’s side.

This has been a bit of a journey for Onomah.

Signed on a free transfer on deadline day, Onomah had been paid up at Fulham and was looking to play regularly again.

Having barely featured before his move to PNE though, Onomah clearly wasn’t match fit and his appearances have been fleeting.

Friday’s game against Queens Park Rangers presented Onomah with his biggest chance so far though.

Why Chelsea FINALLY Turned A Corner.

Alan Browne went off injured on the stroke of half-time and Onomah was picked as the man to come on.

The former Tottenham man clearly has talent and PNE fans were able to really see it for the first time.

Josh Onomah’s key stats

Onomah only had 29 touches of the ball according to WhoScored, but he managed to register an assist with one of them.

The 25-year-old played the ball through for Tom Cannon to scored PNE’s second and secure a 2-0 victory.

Onomah also completed two dribbles and left two QPR defenders in his wake with some superb footwork.

Onomah even chipped in well defensively, registering three tackles in the PNE engine room.

Only Brad Potts racked up more tackles in a PNE shirt with five as Onomah impacted the game on and off the ball.

We expect the attacking quality from a player like Onomah but having that edge off the ball will really please Ryan Lowe.

This was an impressive 45-minute display from Onomah, who may now be in line for a first PNE start against Reading on Monday.

Lowe has much to think about if Browne – as expected – misses out against the Royals and Onomah did his cause no harm with a strong display at Loftus Road.
