PLAYER OF THE WEEKEND: Chris Humphrey – Preston North End
A goal and two assists is very hard to argue against and rightfully so, it’s an impressive performance from winger Chris Humphrey in Preston’s 4-0 win away at Scunthorpe. Two dangerous crosses that led to Joe Garner scoring with a neat finish and forced Miguel Llera to put through his own net was good enough but Humphrey cut inside in the second half to curl an effort in himself.
The win will be a big boost to promotion-chasing Preston, who fluffed their lines last week when they were heavy favourites to beat Notts County. They also broke Scunthorpe’s impressive home record and inflicted Russ Wilcox’s first defeat at Glanford Park, much in part to the 26-year-old Jamaican international’s input.
