Watch: Daryl Horgan scores his first goal in English football

Aiden McGeady also impressed for Preston, scoring a brilliant brace.


IRISH WINGER DARYL Horgan scored his first goal in English football, as his Preston side defeated Brentford 4-2 in the Championship on Saturday.

The former Dundalk winger seems to have adapted well to life across the water after moving from reigning League of Ireland champions Dundalk along with defender Andy Boyle last December.

And while Boyle — an unused sub yesterday — has yet to feature for the English club, 24-year-old Horgan has impressed in five appearances for the Championship side.

The goal itself is very much the kind that will look familiar to long-time Dundalk followers. Horgan capitalised on a gap in the Brentford defence, sprinting through on goal before finishing expertly.

And the ex-Lilywhites player was not the only Irish player who had a good day. Fellow winger Aiden McGeady notched a brilliant brace to ensure his side’s victory.

Meanwhile, Alan Browne and Greg Cunningham were also involved for the hosts, while John Egan and Jack Bonham were unused subs for the visitors, and 19-year-old Bees defender Tom Field, who has been capped by Ireland at underage level, opened the scoring and completed 90 minutes.
