Oldham Athletic 1-3 Preston North End

Preston kept their League One automatic promotion hopes alive thanks to two Joe Garner strikes at 10-man Oldham.

Chris Humphrey's deflected shot gave the visitors the lead, and he later set up Garner for a two-yard tap-in.

Gary Harkins lashed into the top corner from 12 yards for the Latics.

Jonson Clarke-Harris then saw red for handling Garner's shot on the line and, although the striker's penalty was saved, he did score with a dipping strike from 20 yards out late on.

Oldham manager Lee Johnson told BBC Radio Manchester:

Post-match: Oldham manager Johnson

"We were in the game when it was too late and it's not good, it's not good to watch.

"We had no choice but to get our head down.

"When you're up against the top side in the division, you have to make sure you're having a good day and for some reason the confidence looked a little low on the basics really."
