Preston North End’s hopes of reaching the Sky Bet Championship Play Offs have been virtually ended by Fulham who secured a 3-1 victory over The Lilywhites at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

Goals from Sone Aluko, Chris Martin and Neeskens Kebano fired the home side to victory while Tom Barkhuizen’s goal proved to be little consolation for Simon Grayson’s North End side.

The result leaves Preston North End nine points behind the Sky Bet Championship’s top six and their hopes of reaching the Play Offs now look to have ended despite a brave effort in recent weeks. After the match, fans took to Twitter to give their views on the result.

Preston North End are back in action again on Tuesday evening when they face Derby County at Pride Park.
