2-2 after 4-3 defeat

Preston North End keeper Andy Lonergan has been charged with making abusive gestures after flicking the Vs at Burnley fans. He made the gestures after Saturday’s fiery derby match which Preston lost 4-3, despite leading 1-3 with just six minutes to go.

Lonergan has already been told that Lancashire Police are not taking any further action over the incident and he can hardly have the book thrown at him by his boss, since Darren Ferguson has admitted a charge of improper conduct aggravated by insulting and/or abusive language and behaviour after confronting referee Kevin Friend in the tunnel.
