AIDEN MCGEADY CONTINUED his fine run of form in the Championship today, as he rescued a point for Preston against Blackburn.

The Ireland international’s composed finish deep into stoppage time earned a 2-2 draw for his side at Ewood Park.

McGeady has been a revelation since going on loan to Simon Grayson’s side. The player’s excellent performances were recognised recently, as he was named Championship player of the month recently.

The 30-year-old’s progress is good news for Martin O’Neill and Ireland, ahead of Friday’s vital World Cup qualifier against Wales.

There were plenty of other Irish players in action. Darragh Lenihan and Derrick Williams completed 90 minutes for the hosts, while Andy Boyle, Daryl Horgan and Greg Cunningham featured for Preston, and Alan Browne was an unused sub.
