UTILITA PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: PRESTON NORTH END
The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Chris Hughton, Rachel Yankey, Les Ferdinand, Clare Tomlinson, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry has determined that the Utilita Performance of the Week Award should go to Preston North End for their 4-1 victory against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday 10th December 2022.
Preston North End manager Ryan Lowe will receive the Utilita Performance of the Week trophy.
Preston North End came out 4-1 winners in a Lancashire derby away to Blackburn Rovers thanks to goals from Ben Woodburn, Ben Whiteman, and a Ched Evans brace.
Woodburn scored his first league goal of the season 17 minutes in, finishing well one-on-one, before Evans netted his first just two minutes into the second half.
Bradley Dack got one back for Rovers eight minutes later, but PNE went down the other end and restored their two-goal lead thanks to a brilliant Evans header, before Whiteman then got a fourth for North End.
