On-loan Eddie Nketiah earns Leeds United important draw as Preston dig …


“It’s one thing seeing what he does, it’s another stopping it, because with everything you do, he’s got an alternative,” Neil said. “They’re a really well coached team. I’ve faced that Leeds side before with other managers, and they’re not a patch on when he’s in there. He’s the difference, really.” 

Preston hung in there, though, and took the lead on the break with 16 minutes left. Sean Maguire burst away with Leeds committed upfield, and slid the ball across for Barkhuizen to touch in from eight yards. It looked as if it would be an unlikely winner, but Nketiah had other ideas.
