  1. Back again tomorrow

    Brentford v Sheff Wed & Sunderland v Scunthorpe (Sun 15:00 BST)

    Neal Maupay

    Well that was a decent way to end today's proceedings.

    There are two EFL games tomorrow after Sheffield Wednesday's League Cup tie at Sunderland on Thursday.

    The Owls go to Brentford in the Championship, while the Black Cats host Scunthorpe in League One.

    Both those games kick-off at 15:00 BST, and we'll have live coverage from 14:45 BST.

    Until then, goodbye.

  2. 'I'm still enjoying it'

    FT: Preston 2-2 Stoke

    Stoke striker Peter Crouch told Sky Sports:

    "I knew what I was doing (with the headed goal), I was just trying to get anything on it.

    "It was a frustrating game again, we've had a bit of a wake up call, but we've showed a bit more character today and got a result.

    "I believe I can make a contribution whether it's from the bench or starting games. I'm still enjoying it and will go on as long as I can."

  3. 'A draw was fair'

    FT: Preston 2-2 Stoke

    Preston's Ben Pearson told Sky Sports:

    "In the first half we were the better side and created numerous chances, they lacked that final bit of quality.

    "But in the second half they were on top, so a draw is a fair result."


    Preston 2-2 Stoke

    Peter Crouch

    And that's the end of a highly entertaining tea-time game in the Championship.

    Peter Crouch's second-half header salvages a point for Stoke who remain winless.

    It was the 37-year-old's 200th club goal.

  5. Post update

    Preston 2-2 Stoke

    Preston are pumping balls into the box, Stoke are clearing everything.

    It's a frantic finish at Deepdale, but time is running out.


    Preston 2-2 Stoke

    That's clumsy from Peter Crouch. The striker pulls back Tom Clarke and goes into the book.

  7. Five minutes of added time

    Preston 2-2 Stoke

    Plenty of opportunity for a winner!

    Alex Neil
  8. Post update

    Preston 2-2 Stoke

    They're into the final minute of normal time at Deepdale. How much stoppage-time will there be?

  9. Post update

    Preston 2-2 Stoke

    Over from Andrew Hughes.

    The Preston defender climbs high and connects with Tom Clarke's flick back but can't keep his header down.


    Preston 2-2 Stoke

    Hold the front page, Ryan Shawcross goes into the book!

    The Stoke defender is late on Louis Moult - out comes the yellow card.

    Preston are building some late pressure. They win themselves a corner.


    Preston 2-2 Stoke

    Paul Gallagher goes into the book for bundling over Mame Biram Diouf and is swiftly replaced by Ryan Ledson.

    Benik Afobe is also off for Stoke. Peter Etebo comes on for the striker.

  12. Post update

    Preston 2-2 Stoke

    Joe Allen might have got away with one there.

    The Stoke midfielder goes in high on Ben Pearson, but avoids a second yellow as the referee plays advantage. It's wasted by Alan Browne as his shot is blocked.

  13. Post update

    Preston 2-2 Stoke

    Erik Pieters is down for Stoke. Is he time wasting? The Preston fans think so.

    The defender manages to walk to the touchline and is back on. All a bit pointless.

  14. Post update

    Preston 2-2 Stoke

    Preston are still going for it.

    Louis Moult lays the ball off to Paul Gallagher and the first-half goalscorer pings a low shot just wide from about 25 yards.

    Will we get a winner?

  15. Post update

    Preston 2-2 Stoke

    About 20 or so minutes are left at Deepdale and I wouldn't rule out another couple of goals.

    It's been that sort of game. Gary Rowett looks a tad happier in the Stoke dugout. His side have looked much more potent since those couple of substitutions.


    Preston 2-2 Stoke

    Alex Neil

    Now Alex Neil makes a double switch for Preston.

    Lukas Nmecha makes way for Louis Moult and Graham Burke is replaced by Tom Barkhuizen.

  17. Post update

    Preston 2-2 Stoke

    It looked as though the ball came off the back of Peter Crouch's bonce. But the former England striker and Stoke won't care a jot. They're level.

    Meanwhile Crouchy loops another header over, but he's just offside. Stoke are sniffing another goal here.

  18. GOAL: Preston 2-2 Stoke

    Peter Crouch

    Peter Crouch goal

    Peter Crouch makes an instant impact!

    Stoke win a free-kick on the left, Joe Allen whips in an absolute beaut of a cross and Crouch nods in from a couple of yards.

    Heartbreak for Preston. Jubilation for the visitors.

    Peter Crouch

    Preston 2-1 Stoke

    It's a double change for Stoke.

    James McClean and Saido Berahino are hauled off, on come Mame Biram Diouf and veteran Peter Crouch.

    The Potters need something from their big man.

  20. Post update

    Preston 2-1 Stoke

    Hello, I forgot Tom Ince was on the pitch!

    The former Huddersfield midfielder pings a 25-yard volley just over.

    Great strike - just needed to be a bit lower.

    Stoke substitutes are warming up...
