⬅️ Mahoney

0-0 #BluesLIVE

79 - Mahoney dances round his man, and gets taken out just outside the box, he whips in the ball and it comes off a Preston defender and heads goalwards, it looks like it is going in but somehow the ball ends up in the hands of the Preston 'keeper.

0-0 #BluesLIVE

70 - Chance! Maghoma plays a one-two with Adams who is released down the left, he plays a low ball back across the box that falls to Kieftenbeld on the edge of the area, his deflected effort goes behind for a corner. All Blues here.

51 - Mahoney is seeing plenty of the ball, he again picks it up down the left and darts to the byline before fizzing in a low ball across the face of the goal, the sliced clearance falls to Kieftenbeld on the charge who hits his volley into the side netting.

50 - Blues have started the second period on the front foot, Mahoney whips in a great ball from the left channel, narrowly evading the head of Jutkiewicz then Adams. Still goalless.

34 - The game has settled down after a frantic start, Blues seeing plenty of the ball so far and going close through Adams and Mahoney. Preston haven't offered much yet. Still goalless.

19 - What a chance for Adams! The ball is slipped into his feet inside the area and he fends off the challenge of the defender, and with only the 'keeper to beat takes aim, Rudd pulls off a great save to deny the Blues striker.

0-0 #BluesLIVE

17 - Chance! Mahoney is fed the ball down the right flank and he cuts inside and makes room for the shot, a brilliant curling effort that has Rudd worried, inches wide.

0-0 #BluesLIVE

12 - Pearson cynically wipes out Maghoma in the middle of the hosts' half after the Blues player looked to seize upon a loose pass by Preston. Mahoney plays it to Harding who launches a diagonal into the box, the ball goes out for a corner but nothing comes of it.
