Brentford recorded a straight-forward victory over a lacklustre Preston in League One.

Shaluem Logan nodded in the visitors' opening goal inside the first 10 minutes, before Clayton Donaldson's spot-kick doubled the lead.

After Harlee Dean impeded Graham Cummins, Paul Parry pulled one back from the penalty spot for North End.

Donaldson headed in his second goal of the game from close range to kill off the hosts' hopes of a comeback.
